Sent mine back to HMV today. If anyone else orders from Amazon and gets a playable disc, will you let us all know please?

Glad you like it, Chris. Had a lot of fun putting it together!

Someone is selling this on ebay (numerous copies) for £10.25 including postage.

[Though they seem to have managed to spell Avengers wrong!]

Found an e-bay seller too (might be the same one). I sent them an e-mail asking whether they could check the disc plays before I buy. No reply yet, as I only mailed them today.

I'd pre-ordered a copy of the Special Features Disc from HMV when it was released. As it was faulty I returned it for a refund. I noticed that Amazon were selling this item again after they put a block on it because of the fault, and so I decided to try again. The disc arrived this morning and plays perfectly. So it would seem that Amazon now have corrected stock. Very Happy

Yes....I bought a copy from an ebay seller, and it plays perfectly too. At last, my Avengers DVD collection is all present and correct as I have just received my fixed copy of Legacy Of Death as well.

Just received my corrected Legacy of death, so I think I've got a full house now! Was it just the 2 episodes in series 6 that had to be corrected Question (Forget me knot being the other.) Has anyone watched all 33 Tara episodes? Do the other 31 look fine? Thanks, Rich.

Hmm, I'm not sure I got "The Forget Me Knot" corrected. Presumably that came in the same box as the other Tara episodes (season 6), or with seaosn 5 (which I did get corrected)?

If it's confined to the final box, and retail copes are now OK, then I'll probably just buy it again and return the broken set.

What a saga! It's been a convoluted problem equal to any of Steed's and Emma's.

Finally got my corrected special features disc. I found the Avengers locations segment quite interesting. Many of the locations have hardly changed in over 40 years. Exterior of Mrs Peel's flat in season 4 is identical. Great to see Tara's road and Steed's mews today with only slight changes.
Rich.

Haven't watched all of this disc yet. What did people think of Diana's mini-series and her short film Question Rich.

Been to Tara's flat lots of times over the years. I love the park up on the street Very Happy

I absolutely adore Mini-Killers. It's so cheesy but cool at the same time. Very much a product of its time.

Mind you, I would say that as the prints used are my own! Smile

I'm pleased these films have been included on Avengers discs where they seem very 'at home'.

Best to visit the Avengerland website - all the addresses should be there.
