The Gallifrey Chainsaw Massacre?

According to, several Netflix customers noted that their rented copies of Doctor Who: The Complete Second Series disc one had a problem. Apparently at the 32 minute mark of New Earth the episode switches to a rather gruesome scene from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Along the same lines, the special features section of the disc does not work.

Once the BBC were contacted and made aware of the issue they quickly responded with a statement that yes, there was a problem with the discs in question. Only Netflix copies of disc one were affected and not those for purchase in stores. While the BBC works on replacing the faulty DVDs, Nexflix has pulled disc one as being available for rent until the situation is resolved.

I have to admit, I would never have seen THAT one coming. It makes me wonder whether someone over at the BBC is going to lose their job over this stunt. (I’m inclined to believe this is someone’s idea of a sick joke, but anything’s possible…)
