Miscreants are exploiting interest in the season finale of Doctor Who by posting fake episode clips, spoilers and dubious download offers. Credulous fans who follow links supposedly offering footage from the upcoming Big Bang episode, due to screen on BBC on Saturday (26 June), are invited to fill out a quiz in order to "unlock …
Make it a story line
Just get the BBC to create a Dr Who episode, threat based round evil aliens and a popular TV program, evil people getting you to download stuff etc etc.. Soon get the sci fi fans alert..
Wait until bloody Saturday FFS. I'm assuming these are the same people who are at this second queuing down Oxford St in the blistering heat in the hope of getting one of the last iPhones. Can see them from my nice air-conditioned office window. Ahhh....
Who would fall for that?
It doesn't matter
None of us will have existed after Saturday. Perhaps that's why the French and Italians arranged to leave South Africa early, so they can spend their final few hours with their families.
What? You mean Dr Who isn't real?
Didn't he let the dogs out?
Malware free spoiler.
Deus ex machina.
These scammers fail.
They'd have got a lot more victims if, instead of teasing with the prospect of clips from the season finale, they teased with the prospect of clips of Amy in compromising positions of varying levels of undress.
Or is it just me who'd fall for that?

I think the scriptwriters have done enough of that already:
"If Amy Pond's skirts get any shorter there'll be two cracks in time and space for the Doctor to sort out next week" --Newsjack
Okay, when is this episode going to be made?
And can I be in it?
GoG with Billie Piper?
Gawd no, what a thought. Madame de Pompadour, yes, but not Rose. Putting Piper into an alternate dimension was the best plot twist yet, although I am surprised the aliens kept her.
So they've finally found an Innerwebs virus/scam that only effects the English. Elegant!
Given that Dr Who is a BBC Wales program I presume that it has some viewers there too. Or are you suggesting that only english viewers are stupid enough to fall for this scam?
