Apart from the episodes, five scripts from the iconic British science fiction series have been leaked by the hackers.

According to a Radio Times report, a rough black and white edit of Peter Capaldi's first full episode 'Deep Breath' have leaked online six weeks ahead of its premiere.

According the report, due to some security lapse, the episodes and scripts appeared in the Google search page despite being stored on BBC worldwide servers.

Later Spoiler TV reported that the second episode of the series too had leaked online.

Meanwhile a BBC spokesperson issued an apology to Doctor Who fans via Radio Times and said : "BBC Worldwide is currently investigating a security issue around "Doctor Who" Series 8 were unfinished material has inadvertently been made public."

The channel has also issued a global spoiler warning and urged fans to restrain from downloading and sharing the materials.

"We'd like to thank the amazing Doctor Who fans who are continuing to keep fansites and social media spoiler-free but would remind anyone downloading and sharing this material that it is illegal to do so."
