Texas Chainsaw Massacre hacks into Doctor Who DVD

'Manufacturing problem'

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Fans settling down to enjoy a Doctor Who US rental DVD were treated to scenes from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, UK tabloid The Sun reports.

According to the paper, "a manufacturing blunder led to footage of a maniac hacking off limbs appearing midway through an episode seen by hundreds of families". The Doctor Who episode in question was New Earth - the first installment of series two - dispatched by Netflix postal DVD rental service.

A BBC "insider" explained the cock-up may have happened because "both DVDs were made at the same time for release on the same day".

A BBC statement explained: "Due to a manufacturing problem, Disc One of the Netflix copies of 'Doctor Who: The Complete Second Series' DVD collection contains incorrect footage from another film. The special features section on Disc One is also inaccessible on rented Netflix copies.

"This error is only found on Disc One of Netflix copies of the series, not on any Doctor Who DVDs available for purchase in stores. We are doing our best to rectify this problem as soon as possible and apologize for any inconvenience or distress." ®
