The Radio Times has reported that a “rough black and white edit” of the series' first episode, “Deep Breath”, has found it’s way out of the BBC’s care from the same server where the scripts originated. These holes in the BBC’s security can both be traced to the Beeb’s Miami office.

A brief search of torrent sites brings up a few files pertaining to be the episode.

The BBC extends it’s apologies to Doctor Who fans that may be upset by the leak and urges others not to share the files currently doing the rounds.
