New Doctor Who episode leaks onto bittorrent networks.
I’ve just found what appears to be the first episode of the new Doctor Who, starring Christopher Eccleston on a bittorrent network. Nice! But how? On the official site, it says that it will be shown ‘sometime in 2005’. There’s also talk of a DVD being available from October on Amazon. (Need to find links again) Hmmm… also rumours that this may have been delibeate. But I’m sure that’s just speculation. However, if it was deliberate, good move I say.
I will report back possibly via the bluggcaster, what I think of it when I get round to watching it.
The file was called Rose1.avi – as Rose is the name of the Doctor’s new ‘companion’ played by Billie Piper. The image quality is so good, it must have directly from a digitape or dvd copy of the yet to be released, and highly anticipated BBC TV series.
Keep an eye on the BBC News Entertainment Section in the morning, as I’m sure there will be a story.
