Dr Who - an apology

Dr Who - an apology

First published in News
Last updated

WHO'S sorry now... within the last hour we have inadvertently upset Dr Who fans across the universe by breaking an embargo about the identity of some long lost episodes.

We would like to make it clear that this was a genuine mistake and we did not mean to cause consternation amongst followers of the Time Lord by leaping into the future.

Following a twitter storm, and a phone call from BBC Worldwide,  our website has been "doctored" to remove the offending details.

Within eight minutes the story has become the most read on our website. Sadly, we are unable to go back in time and undo our abominable mistake so we can only sincerely apologise.

For those who missed it, all will be revealed on northernecho.co.uk at midnight.

The man responsible has been exterminated by popular demand.

I don't think you upset any fans, though you may have upset the BBC. This embargo is silly. I hope TPTB at BBC have a good reason (and tell us it) for not making the announcement a global event.
Anyone with facebook knows many of the details anyway.

I think it's hilarious that a keyboard warrior such as yourself rushed to the internet to share your fascinating thoughts on something you claim not to care about.
