Here's Peter Capaldi as the Doctor!

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 1 Script Leaked Online?

We’ve had a few Doctor Who leaks over the years, from fakes on IMDb (Norman Lovett as Davros in 2005’s The Parting of the Ways, for instance) to the casting of Peter Capaldi last year. The odd script has gone missing, in the meantime, and some badly kept secrets (John Simm as the Master, for instance) have kept us intrigued.

This weekend, however, it transpires that an online poster is claiming to have photographed two pages of a script from Doctor Who Series 8. How genuine the images are we cannot say, but they’re interesting enough to take a look at.

The problem for you, dear reader, is finding them.

Given recent legal action in this area, we’re going to avoid sharing either the images or the link. Below, however, is a brief summary of what has been leaked…

Doctor Who Series 8 Episode 1 Script Leaked

Labelled “Nemesis of Neglect” by Steven Moffat, the images of the script are of the cover and page one, in which the TARDIS crash lands, witnessed by a policeman.


And that’s all you’re getting from us.
