Some interesting ideas but I would not call them spoilers but maybe they are. So read at your own risk.
 
Steven Moffat has offered teasers for each episode of Doctor Who Series 8 in the latest issue of the Radio Times.

The following does contain a few spoilers, so please read no further if you prefer to avoid spoilers.

Deep Breath - Killers stalk London in the late 1890′s. A restaurant that is actually a slaughterhouse and a buried spaceship see the Doctor confronting a long-forgotten foe.

Into the Dalek - A miniaturised team embark on a fantastic voyage into a Dalek so damaged it has become good.

Robot of Sherwood - The Doctor discovers an evil plan from beyond the stars in Sherwood Forest. Who is real and who isn’t?

Listen - What scares the Doctor? Ghosts of the past and future crowd into the lives of the Doctor and Clara; a terrified caretaker in a children’s home, the last man standing in the universe, and a little boy who doesn’t want to join the army… “What’s that in the mirror, and the corner of your eye? What’s the footstep following, but never passing by?”

Time Heist - The Doctor is tasked with breaking into the Bank of Karabraxos, the deadliest in the cosmos. He is helped by a beautiful shape-shifter and cyber-augmented gamer. But nothing can prepare them for the Teller: a creature that can detect guilt.

The Caretaker - Clara has it all under control, so long as everybody in her life never actually meets, but then Coal Hill welcomes a new relief caretaker with a Scottish accent, while the Skovox Blitzer is ready to destroy humanity.

Kill the Moon - In the near future, the Doctor and Clara arrive on a decrepit shuttle making a suicide mission to the Moon. Crashing on the lunar surface, they find a mining base full of eviscerated corpses, spider-like creatures scuttling about in the dark, and a terrible dilemma.

Mummy on the Orient Express - The Mummy is stalking the passengers and if it sees you you have 66 seconds to live. Clara sees the Doctor at his most deadliest and most ruthless and realises it’s time to say goodbye.

Flatline - Clara is now separated from the Doctor and discovers a threat from another dimension. But how do you hide when even the walls are no protection? With no Doctor around, Clara goes against a foe that exists beyond normal perception.

In the Forest of the Night - The human race wakes up to the most surprising invasion yet: the trees have moved back in. Everywhere a forest has grown overnight and taken back the Earth.

Dark Water / Death in Heaven - In the mysterious world of the Nethersphere, plans have been drawn. Old friends and old enemies manoeuvre around the Doctor, and an impossible choice is looming over him. Death is not an end, promises the organisation known as 3W.
“You betrayed me. You betrayed my trust, our friendship, and everything I’ve ever stood for. You let me down.”

Doctor Who Series 8 will begin on Saturday, 23rd August at 7:50pm on BBC One.

OK. If there is one video you watch this month, this should be it: it is 13 minutes of your life which will be well-spent. Because at the end of it, you will actually know what is going on with net neutrality, (or as he calls it, "preventing cable company fuckery") and exactly what the sleazy deals are behind it, but you will also be laughing your ass off, because John Oliver is hilarious.

Net neutrality is kind of amazing, because destroying it manages to screw over almost everyone.

Small companies get screwed over because they can't afford to pay off the cable companies to get access to their customers. Oh, you had an idea for a business using the Internet? Well, I hope your business plan includes a few million bucks to pay for your customers to be allowed to reach your site.

Big companies get screwed over because they're shaken down for (literally) billions of dollars by cable companies -- "That's a nice business you have there. Pity if someone were to make sure your customers could never reach you again" -- and that's assuming that the cable companies don't see them as competitors (if, say, they were doing something like streaming video...), at which point those companies could just shut them off outright.

People who use the Internet get screwed because the sites they want to connect to can't pay these extra fees, or are just being shut down outright by the cable companies. What, you wanted to watch a movie tonight? Sorry. Maybe you should have rented it from Comcast, instead, sucker!

In fact, nearly everyone in the entire country gets screwed over by this. So why, you ask, would the government be considering such a thing? 

Well. There is one group who doesn't get screwed over by it at all. Your friends and mine at Comcast, Time-Warner, Verizon, and AT&T. But don't worry; they have your best interests at heart. And the service guy will be there between 2 and 6. 

Really.

Honest.

Wow just wow. I understand the need to protect content and individual creations. But this is a very slippery slop.
Here's the bad news: the World Wide Web Consortium is going ahead with its plan to add DRM to HTML5, setting the stage for browsers that are designed to disobey their owners and to keep secrets from them so they can't be forc...
