The Radio Times revealed that the episode leaked after a security breach at BBC Worldwide in Miami, with five Doctor Who series eight scripts also appearing in Google searches.

A spokesperson said: "This is part of BBC Worldwide's ongoing security investigation into leaked unfinished Doctor Who materials.

"This content is currently being removed and originates from the same Miami server we disabled last week, it is not a new issue.

"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."
