BBC Worldwide have issued a statement asking fans not to post episode spoilers:
“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.”
