Like many Doctor Who fans I was shocked to learn that DVDs had been released early in the United States allowing people to post spoilers potentially ruining the series finale for many viewers. I have therefore carefully avoided all pronouncements other than official information from the BBC and listings magazines.
Imagine my astonishment this evening when I clicked on a link for South African television listings (from the BBC no less) to discover that they have spoiled the finale in the listings. Those listings are here.
I know some people can’t resist clicking on spoiler links – despite warnings that their viewing pleasure will be disappointed. Well, so be it. If you want your viewing ruined go ahead and click. I, for one, have already sent my complaint to the BBC in South AFrica.
