Sep 5, 2014  •  Post A Comment

Following the release of videos showing the beheadings of two U.S. journalists by Islamic State militants, the BBC reports that it has edited out a scene from a new episode of the popular series “Doctor Who” that was to include the beheading of a character.

The change was made to this Saturday’s episode, which features a fight between Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham, the story says. The BBC said it made the edit “in light of recent news events,” noting the beheadings of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff.

The episode was filmed in February, and is the third episode in the new season of “Doctor Who.”
