Can we just stop for a second and appreciate that in group situations people want to be good, and moral and right? For a shining, solitary moment, the internet was at its moral best.
What the hell am I talking about, you ask? Only about how Neil Gaiman - and the internet - were saved from a potential leak of his latest Doctor Who script which was accidentally left in the back of a taxi. An absent-minded actress had reportedly been reading it in a cab and presumably left it sitting in the back seat while she was paying and forgot to pick it up again.
The script was found by a non-Whovian (non Doctor Who fan - to those not in the know) who posted a photo of it on her Facebook page. Her friend, a Whovian and Redditor (editor on social news website, Reddit), known as “Shrimpdude” posted the image on Reddit and pondered over what to do.

Doctor Who has just finished its most recent series, with what could be classed as “pretty good ratings for the ABC”.
For those in the audience who have been watching the entire run, it was a thrilling conclusion to a story that has been teased out over the course of thirteen episodes. To casual viewers, they’ll be left wondering what the hell Van Gogh, Winston Churchill and a Dalek made of stone are doing in the same story.
Even to those who are regular viewers, trying to figure out everything that happened in this episode is likely to turn you cross-eyed. The Doctor gets himself out of trouble using some logic that seems to be borrowed from Red Dwarf – a future me is going to travel back in time and get me out of this mess. They’ll know how to do that because they already saw themselves doing it when they were me.
