Bookmark and Share Germany: FOX unable to produce German dub of Deep Breath for premiere

FOX Deutschland have announced on Facebook that they are not going to air the German dub of Deep Breath on Saturday, but instead will only broadcast the original English language version. According to the channel this decision is due to the BBC's enhanced security after the leaks, which resulted in the material arriving later than usual and making it impossible to finish the German dub on time.

FOX have apologised to viewers, and stated that they will make the German-dubbed episode available through On-Demand services from Sky and Kabel Deutschland as soon as possible.

Here is the full statement by FOX:

Liebe FOX-Fans, unser Ziel ist es, euch deutsche Erstausstrahlungen so zeitnah wie möglich zur Weltpremiere zu präsentieren - in Originalsprache und auf Deutsch. Mit THE WALKING DEAD, THE BRIDGE - AMERICA und DA VINCI‘S DEMONS ist uns das erfolgreich gelungen. Daher waren wir stolz, euch auch DOCTOR WHO Staffel 8 zeitgleich zur UK-Premiere zeigen zu können. Und euer sehr positives Feedback hat uns gezeigt, dass das der richtige Weg ist.

Im Produktionsprozess der Serie ist ein Drehbuch an die Öffentlichkeit gelangt ( http://bit.ly/1tgwjcR ), was zu höheren Sicherheitsmaßnahmen und damit erheblichen Verzögerungen in der Materiallieferung und der Synchronisation geführt hat. Daher können wir nur einen Teil unseres Versprechens einlösen: Ihr werdet DOCTOR WHO Staffel 8 am gleichen Tag wie in UK auf FOX erleben, jedoch in der Originalfassung. Das tut uns sehr leid!  Die deutschen Folgen werden wir euch im VOD-Bereich von Sky und Kabel Deutschland anbieten. Sobald diese verfügbar sind, erfahrt ihr es hier auf Facebook!
Dear FOX-fans, it is our goal to present to you German premieres as near as possible to their world premieres - in the original language and in german. We did this successfully with THE WALKING DEAD, THE BRIDGE - AMERICA and DA VINCI'S DEMONS. That is why we were proud to announce a simulcast broadcast to the UK premiere of Series 8 of DOCTOR WHO. And your very positive feedback showed us that this is the right thing to do.

During producing of the show a script was leaked to the public ( http://bit.ly/1tgwjcR ) which lead to advanced security politics and later arrivals of material and dubbings. This is the reason why we are only able to fulfill one part of our promise: You will be able to experience Series 8 of DOCTOR WHO on FOX on the same day as the UK, but only in its original version. We are very sorry! The German episodes will be presented to you on your VoD account at Sky and Kabel Deutschland. As soon as they are available, you will get a notice from us here at Facebook.

Doctor Who: Deep Breath will air this Saturday at 9 PM on FOX.
