    Over the years there have been a few scenes like this with the Doctor “about” to be be beheaded (happened to Peter Davison twice at least) but as booboo says it would never actually happen (in shot) to a humanoid character….it is more off screen implied threat.

    Robots have lost their heads a lot though….

    It didn’t need the papers to portray it how they have though but that is tabloid journalism for you.

    they wouldn’t full stop to a “human” character

    cut the scene by all-means but I’m not sure the way this is been portraid is necessary

    Just learned that a scene from this episode has been edited out before Saturday’s broadcast involving a beheading scene in the story as a mark of respect for the 2 US Journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff who was both recently beheaded by ISIS Jihadists.

    I didn’t think Doctor Who would ever do a story featuring any kind of beheading, except maybe ‘The Five Doctors’ when a Cyberman has his head chopped off by the Raston Warrior Robot during that Cyber Massacre in the Death Zone on Gallifrey.

    Its all looking a bit Hal the archer with bits of ‘the time warrior’ thrown in with those robots.

    Yeah, they really need to change the theme from the 2012 version to the modern 2014 version.

    Why is the trailer using the theme from the last series, are we being given a chance to say which one we prefer?

    With the Doctor constantly insisting that Robin Hood isn’t real, I wonder if the Land of Fiction from Patrick Troughton’s era will be the twist in this story 🙂

    No I don’t. It was all cleared up in The Time of the Doctor. The War Doctor isn’t numbered because he didn’t call himself the Doctor during the Time War, and the Tenth Doctor, due to vanity issues, found a way to regenerate and keep the same face. So Matt Smith IS the Eleventh Doctor.

    Looking forward to this episode as I’m hopefully going to meet Ben Miller (Sheriff) the next day at Nor-Con (Norwich Sci-Fi Convention)
