    A show spokesperson said the leak was a "significant breach of copyright". "We would urge viewers not to spoil their enjoyment and to wait for the finished version, which airs at the end of the month," a statement said.

    I hope the new "Doctor Who" is broadcast in the U.S. sometime soon after it first airs in the UK. I think it used to be a rule that BBC would delay shows three years before we'd get them. Of course, a lot of things have changed since the late 1980s-early 1990s.

    I just recently read that at ShortNews and I was like what the hell is "Dr. Who" but if it has been running for 26 years I guess it is a good series. I forgot when it stopped airing i believe it was something like 1989.
