Doctor Who fans in the United States are being urged to keep the plot of this Saturday's finale The Name of the Doctor secret after DVD boxsets of the current series were distributed early in error. BBC Worldwide has said that a small number of fans had been sent pre-ordered DVD boxsets three weeks early. BBC Worldwide has asked those with the DVD Series Seven Part Two boxset not to reveal plot details of the shows finale ahead of it's terrestrial showing.
Steven Moffat, Doctor Who's head writer and Executive Producer promised footage of current Doctor, actor Matt Smith with his predecessor David Tennant if everyone keeps tight lipped about the finales secrets.

"A small number of US Doctor Who fans have received their Series Seven Part Two DVD three weeks early," BBC Worldwide said in an issued statement.

"We are asking fans who may have the discs not to divulge plot details so that fellow fans who have yet to see the episodes do not have their viewing pleasure ruined."

BBC Worldwide is currently investigating how the boxsets were distributed so early.

This Saturday's episode of the hit BBC One show, The Name of the Doctor which is written by Steven Moffat, comes ahead of a Fiftieth Anniversary 3D special, due to air on 23 November 2013.

David Tennant and Billie Piper, who played Rose Tyler, are among those who will guest star.
