It appears the UK gets a four month head start on the release. I could understand a week or two, but four months?

There generally is a gap of a few months between the UK and US releases, one of the things that prompted me to get a Region Free player. For certain DVDs, I don't feel like waiting. Smile

Think yourself lucky. Australia has an even longer wait for new releases.

Oh, and Zoltar's right - a region free player is definitely the way to go. Or failing that, simply seek out a region hack for your existing player - most brand makes have one.

It arrived a bit late, but my sister dropped off the E-Space Trilogy DVDs today. She told me she was waiting on them during my party on Sunday. Haven't had a chance to look at them yet, might watch one tomorrow. Smile

Haven't you checked to see if there's a region free hack for your player yet?

I've been dodging snowstorms and sheltering from sub-freezing ambient conditions. So, that would be a 'no' on the region-free hack search: It just hasn't been at the top of my to do list since you last mentioned it, Sid.

I bought The New Beginnings DVDs for a tenner today. Generally I prefer the E-Space stories (I think Full Circle is charming... are people going to chase me out of wrinklydom with pitch-forks?) but money dictates...

Haven't tried that one yet. I skipped straight to State of Decay.

I'll definitely buy it, but as always I have to wait for it to go on sale. Full price retail is always too much to pay.

Okay, so I finally broke down and bought the E-Space trilogy today. I'm currently watching the special features on Full Circle, and there are two random bits of trivia I learned for the first time.

First, the actor who played Varsh, Richard Willis, ended up marrying the actress who played Keara, June Page. Apparently, being an 'outler' is good for relationships.

Second, Bernard Padden, who played Tylos, was actually a finalist for the part of Adric. He didn't get it because he had a northern accent. Apparently, in John Nathan Turner's Season 18, lots of planets did not have a north.

Full Circle is the first DW I have distinct memories of watching Smile I've got the trilogy, but I'm waiting for a suitable time to sit down with my lad and a shed-load of popcorn to watch it.

Lucy,
Do make time to watch the special features on the discs, too. Some fascinating stuff about the production of each of the three stories gets revealed. Who knew Terrance Dicks and Chris Bidmead didn't get along? Who knew Paul Joyce was actually fired as director during the making of Warrior's Gate? Lots of interesting trinkets of trivia in there.

Yeah, that was news to me. The extras are great, but then I find DW extras usually are.

That's too bad, Lucy. You're denying yourself some really cool stuff.

I tend to watch the extras before the story. Haven't got this Box Set on my list to buy for a long time yet, btw.

It's not a bad set, but the extras aren't anything particularly special.
