Marcelo Camargo Strikes Again – Doctor Who Season 8 Episodes Leak In Black And White

marcelopirateThe file names are familiar, with Marcelo Camargo's nomenclature in them. But what was feared last week has happened...

We told you that the scripts for the first five episodes of the new season of Doctor Who had leaked. Placed on an open server at BBC Miami for subtitle translation purposes and then pulled down when the leak were international.

Bleeding Cool has chosen not to read them – though we have them ready to peruse after the episodes have aired from next month.

But we also noted that video files were also placed on the BBC Miami server, but that it seemed that none had been downloaded before the server was pulled down.

That now seems not to have been the case. And workprints of episodes 1 and 2 have been made available through torrenting sites.

I reiterate that these are workprints. Black and white, covered in watermarks, without full CGI effects and with different sound. These are not comparable to the episodes that will air. Reading the scripts is one thing, watching these episodes will ruin the episodes for you.

So no, Bleeding Cool isn't watching them either. If it were the actual full episode… then probably, like I did with Rose. But this is very different. Caveat torrenter….

UPDATE: We've been sent this, as little spoilery as possible image, to show what you'll be seeing if you do so. All the way through.



And the title sequence? The old one, including Matt Smith's face. Seriously, wait…
