"Robot of Sherwood" Scene Edited by BBC "Out of Respect"
The BBC have edited out a beheading sequence from Saturday's "Robot of Sherwood" episode "out of respect" following recent events in Iraq and Syria.
The Radio Times stated that "the edit has been made to remove a decapitation in the climatic fight scene between Robin Hood and the Sheriff; something that could be deemed insensitive after two US journalists were killed by IS (Islamic State) militants in the past month."
A BBC Spokesman said: "In light of recent news events, we have made an edit to episode three out of respect."
