Most of all I would still love for The Strange Case of the Missing Corpse to be restored in a future boxset. It clearly was shot on 35mm film and is the 1st color mini episode. At 3-4 minutes wouldn't be that extensive of a restoration. It looks surprisingly good damage and all in SD.

I'm playing catch-up on this release. Are the bonus features from the Optimum set ported over?

Also, i had trouble with my US blu-ray edition of season 5- mainly because the pitch was noticeably higher/faster than how the show was broadcast in the States. Is this new Blu-ray "normal" pitch (by US experience)? Is there a clip somewhere on-line I can see to compare?

Thanks, friends.
-Jason

Hi Jace,

The UK Series 4 Blu-ray ports over all the special features with the exception of the DVD-ROM extras (i.e. PDFs).

The pitch is correct (as per US transmissions).

NB: These are coded Region B, not all region.

Best,

Alan

Thanks for that just ordered my copy. Two avengers bargains in the same week with the lost episodes vol 1 CD set. It is worth sometimes to hold off getting things right away. The main reason for holding off on the blu ray set was to see if there was any issues but for the lost episodes cds I just never got around to getting them. Let's see when season 5 will come down in price.

Have they honoured your order Noel? I've just clicked the link and it says 62.99 so I'm guessing the 20.59 price was an error.

On the emails from Hive and PayPal it says 20.59 I'm sorry that you did not get the same price. Ithink ebay is around the same price one or two pounds more. Good luck.

I just went back on the hive site and now they are selling it for 62.99 I guess I just ordered mine in time and I was going to order it later but I said why put it off.

I'm smelling a rat here - just had a refund notice from PayPal although no cancellation email from Hive but I have had a message thanking me for signing up to their newsletter, despite me specifically ticking the box saying 'no'.

Very confusing - I've had the PayPal refund but my account at Hive says CANCELLED and then alongside it 'order NOT (their capitals) cancelled' so I'm not sure what's going on. In the meantime I've ordered one off eBay for 21:77 from a seller I've used before (rarewaves) although they've since sold out. It might be worth checking eBay periodically as there was another retailer (speedyhen, who I've also used) selling them at the same price earlier so they might relist at some point. There's also another retailer selling them at about 29.

No problem Ian - now sold out. Will be worth checking again tomorrow as it's been in and out of stock most of the evening.

Hi Geoff
So did you end up getting the DVD's? Let us know what you think. Also I did some posting on DMTH and there seemed to be some new interest there from Nick
