The BBC has issued a plea to American Doctor Who fans not to reveal the ending to this Saturday's season finale after pre-order Blu-rays sent out in error.
A handful of copies have been posted to customers three weeks early, it has transpired, which, according to BBC News, BBC Worldwide, the BBC's commercial arm, is investigating how the error occurred.
In a statement issued earlier this afternoon, a spokesperson for BBC Worldwide said, "A small number of US Doctor Who fans have received their series seven part two DVD three weeks early. We are asking fans who may have the discs not to divulge plot details so that fellow fans who have yet to see the episodes do not have their viewing pleasure ruined."
According to Doctor Who News, as an incentive to avoid spoiling the viewing pleasure for TV viewers yet to see the episode, The Name of the Doctor, the writer, the show's executive producer and lead writer, Steven Moffat, has promised to release a special video, if the secret was kept. "If everyone keeps the secrets safe until next Saturday, we will release a special new clip featuring material of the Tenth AND Eleventh Doctor!” Moffat said via Twitter.
Moffat has already revealed, "There's going to be a revelation. I'm not teasing. I'm not wrong-footing you - you're about to learn something about the Doctor that you never knew before. And I think you're in for a shock."
As reported in by Wales Online, "It is common knowledge that the show will wrap up a number of long running story arcs, as well as creating some new ones ahead of the 50th anniversary show later this year."
The Name of the Doctor, directed by Saul Metzstein, will see Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor and his companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) joined by River Song (Alex Kingston). It will mark the first time Professor Song has appeared alongside Clara.
