The Guardian is reporting that the source of the leaked episode �Rose� has been identified and dismissed by his employers.
The paper reports that the party involved works for a DVD duplicating company used by the Canadian Broadcasting Company and quotes the BBC as saying:
“The source of the leak of episode one of the new Doctor Who series has been traced to a third-party company in Canada, which had an early preview copy for legitimate purposes.
The individual responsible for the leak has had their employment terminated by that company as a result.”
The article also clarifies earlier descriptions of the Canadian Broadcasting Company as a ‘co-production partner’ noting that it is “not strictly a co-production partner” and explains that “CBC put money into the series at the script stage, giving it certain rights such as the chance to premiere the show on Canadian TV.”
