Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

Regarding the "bribe" of a video of Matt and David played after the ep on Saturday, I think it's a safe bet that even if it leaks and every man and his dog sees it prior to the actual airing the video will still be released. Imagine a teaser like that and then them NOT releasing it, the call for blood would be as bad as any leak!

Yeah BBC has no leverage.

People who will have seen the episode will just tune back in for last few minutes


They have to hype the Anniversary special somehow. The teaser would have been on the episode regardless of the leak.


Comic-Con is coming up. They could have released it then.

They could also release all but the last 15 to 30 minutes of the episode online as an extended preview

Are we sure this was an accident and not part of the hyping up machine?

Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

Well the good news is - and I'm in the 'even if it's there I'm not going to' camp - there are no torrents I can see just yet. So hopefully fans that received the box set aren't interested or don't care about uploading the episode. Which is very good.

And that's all I'm gonna say on the matter.

Generally the Hype-up machine wants to tease, not provide a way for full copies to be released onto the internet before the actual show.

Plus annoying the 99.9% of fans who won't get it early is hardly good PR.

Best never to assume conspiracy where incompletence will do.

I love the appeals to "Goddammit, I'm a license fee payer!" on Gallifrey Base. I'm not sure what that argument is meant to do -- 2|Entertain isn't going to change the street date (if BBC America sent it out, then other retailers are likely to already have it), the BBC isn't going to broadcast the episode early, etc. Shit happens.

True, that.

We might not - depends on number of people who received it - if it is low, how hard is to contact each of them and brace them with possible legal consequences?

All it take is for just one to put it out there for just an hour or so before before it gets picked by others who will re-seed the torrent under there respective torrent entities.

It does but you (as an individual) don't know how many other copies were sent out - so if they say are one of a handful, you might not risk it.

Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

I think it's more likely that the copies that went out will simply have been received by people who have no knowledge of/interest in DVD ripping and torrenting. No one who actually has legal authority is going to care enough even to threaten legal action over something like this. If they put the Gallifrey Base admins in charge, maybe...

Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

I predict it will be online before Saturday, just a matter of when. Again it only takes one person to do it and you can't speak for the good nature of them all. LOL

You can speak for the bad nature- "Nyahahaha, I've got it/seen it and I'm not going to share it with *you*"
