Jenna Coleman, Peter Capaldi
I bet the BBC wishes they had a TARDIS right about now.
Several scripts from Doctor Who's upcoming eighth season, the first starring Peter Capaldi in the famous role of the time-traveling alien, have made their way to the Internet, according to the Radio Times.
Lending credibility to the scripts is the fact that the BBC is now scrambling to cover up the leak. They released a statement urging fans to not read the scripts, because they clearly don't understand how the Internet works, or how rabid Whovians are.

"BBC Worldwide is currently investigating a security issue around Doctor Who Series 8 where unfinished material has inadvertently been made public," the BBC said in a statement. "We deeply regret this and apologize to all the show's fans, the BBC and the cast and crew who have worked tirelessly making the series. We would like to make a plea to anyone who might have any of this material and spoilers associated with it not to share it with a wider audience so that everyone can enjoy the show as it should be seen when it launches. We know only too well that Doctor Who fans are the best in the world and we thank them for their help with this and their continued loyalty."
The leak apparently happened after the scripts were sent to the BBC's new Latin American headquarters in Miami for translation.
Doctor Who returns Saturday, Aug. 23 at 8/7c on BBC America.
