Doctor Who has edited its latest upcoming episode following the Manchester terror attack.

22 people were killed and many more injured in a suicide bomb attack at Manchester Arena following a concert late on Monday.

Tonight's Doctor Who's episode The Pyramid at the End of the World airs at 7:45PM on BBC One and had included discussion of terrorism.

"Following the tragic events in Manchester, we have made a small edit to this week's episode of Doctor Who," a statement from the BBC said.

The episode will air otherwise as normal this evening.

The edits follow the BBC dropping its new drama Broken from schedules completely on Tuesday night.

Sean Bean and Anna Friel will star in the gritty six part drama, based in a Northern town in England.

"Following last night's tragic events in Manchester, BBC1's new drama series Broken will not start tonight as planned but has been rescheduled for next Tuesday 30 May," the BBC said in a statement earlier this week.

Meanwhile, Channel 4's new prime time drama Ackley Bridge has also cut out scenes ahead of its premiere next month.

The Sun reports that the show had featured a hoax bomb plot at a school, causing panic amongst the children and staff.

"After the atrocity in Manchester this week, bosses decided straight away it would not be appropriate to include the scene and have edited it out of the episode," a source said.
