Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

Wow, that's one hell of a slip up. I bet GallifreyBase is in complete meltdown mode right now.

2002 was a good year, I think.

They'll just do their usually trick of deleting everything and threatening to ban anyone who talks about things they don't want talked about.

It's such a shame that the biggest DW site in the world is run as an Autocracy.

/me waits patiently for the torrent to show up.

I reckon theirs a pretty good chance the entire episode will leak. Personally, I reckon the BBC should just cut their losses and screen it now, rather than waiting until Saturday.

They done fucked up, the BBC bide as well release it regularly online--Itunes, what have you--and triple price it for an "early release" copy.

You there's going to be a shit ton of troll videos on youtube spoiling the episode or claiming to spoil it. This week si going to be "interesting"

Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

Only problem is that the BBC is stuck between a rock and a hard place. They can't exactly release it prior to airing and charge people for it esp. in the UK given that viewers in the UK have already paid for the episode.

Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

Oh dear. But it was going to happen given the total mess over transmission and delivery dates since they stopped doing the straightforward thing: Making 13 Episodes and A Christmas Special Each Year on a Vaguely Reliable Schedule.
If any heads roll, I hope it's at the top at Cardiff (not Moffat and co, the idiots at the level above that).

Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

GallifreyBase has, of course, not disappointed those of us hoping for a hilarious overreaction to this. The following, with bolding and capitalization in the original, is now pinned to the top of every page:
To all our members, new and old: We have a rule here that forbids any discussion of illegally obtaining episodes of Doctor Who. This, naturally, includes torrenting and link sharing. Because torrenting itself is not illegal - it's a legitimate distribution method, regardless of the legality of the files being distributed - we NORMALLY permit discussions of torrenting as a distribution method. But that's under normal circumstances. Due to the early release of Series 7 discs, these are not normal circumstances. Therefore, for the next 7 days until 19 May 2013, we are officially making ANY AND ALL discussion of torrenting or link sharing, or any other mention of distributing, acquiring, ripping, sharing, searching for or finding ANYTHING distributed illegally, grounds for a ban that will last anywhere from 7 to 14 days. Consider this your only warning. Thanks.
Is it the futility or the pomposity that's funnier? I can't decide.

My local Best Buy is notorious for sticking DVDs on the shelf a couple of weeks prior to release. Of course, the rub is their cash registers have failsafes so that if a product is scanned before release date, a message pops up on the screen and they don't let you purchase it.

The bizarre thing is that I can remember him at the Tavern once, responding to the active - and pre-transmission - discussion of Girl in the Fireplace by saying "Bloody hell, is there anyone in this pub who hasn't seen it already?"

Like BrendanMoody says: pointless. Once it's out it's out. Back then he knew that...

Yeah, cause that'll keep off the 'net--if the leak is real.

There's ways around failsafes if you want to sell a product early. Just saying a sheet of UPC codes of equal value or that ring up "miscellanous merchandise" aren't unknown of
