British public service broadcaster BBC is asking Microsoft for help in finding the person responsible for leaked the footage from the eleventh season of science fiction television programme Doctor Who. At the end of June, the BBC discovered that parts of unaired episodes were posted at the online forum Tapatalk.

Later, the BBC found that the footage was stored on an OneDrive account, a service from Microsoft. Therefore the BBC now requests help from the American software giant, in the hope they can find the person or persons responsible for the leak.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the BBC requested an American court to subpoena Microsoft. The British want the company to provide all relevant information about the leaked file.

Doctor Who season 11 is scheduled to be aired on BBC America this fall.
