Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

I doubt it. You're talking about a mistake with BBC America's fulfillment service. Who are you going to sack? The person who packed the box in the warehouse? The person who screwed up the data in the database that led to it being sent out early? Moffat may be so angry he's about to Hulk out, but it's unlikely to have any repercussions.

This looks like a big mistake that requires an "off with their heads" response, but that's only because we're inside the fandom bubble. This is no worse than Amazon Germany sending out A Dance With Dragons early or one of the Harry Potter novels going on sale early. In the grand scheme of things, a retailer making a mistake isn't very big, and it happens far more often than anyone thinks.
