Interesting, it's turns that some of those who made the order through Amazon could get this DVD-box already on April 7. Surprised
It can be considered as the premiere date. Wink

Unfortunately, it's important 'bug' from StudioCanal. Hopefully they will fix it and more, have time to do it for the coming release of German DVD edition.

The scripts are indeed missing, left off by accident. I sent them and was assured they would be included (and of course the packaging claims they are present).

Also rather bemused that the reconstructions are in an order that is not correct.

I have contacted StudioCanal and if I hear anything back, I will post here.

Meanwhile, here is a PR article that I have been interviewed for:

Nice article Alan. Thanks.

Such a shame about the Tunnel of fear DVD missing the scripts. Seems problems with the Avengers releases (at least in UK) continues...

Yes, James, it's sad Sad , despite many already to get used to these things.

The latest news is the following:

It seems StudioCanal will not reissue this DVD set and just offers its customers go to info@studiocanal.co.uk for getting a download link to the scripts.

I wonder if the German edition is waiting for the same option.

I received a reply to my email to Studio Canal and have been given a link and a code to download the missing pdf’s. It also says

‘Please note the files are accessible for a limited time only so please download them as soon as possible.’

so if you contact them and do get sent the link, don’t hang around.

Welp. I emailed StudioCanal to get the link and stuff for the “Tunnel of Fear” script. They duly sent me a link and login info, but when I downloaded and unpacked the zip file, it contained everything but “Tunnel of Fear.” I emailed them again, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

C’mon, lads. Get it together.

I'm pleased with StudioCanal. I received a prompt reply to
my e-mail and had the download link for the scripts within hours.
It's a 348 MB zip. file with 19 scripts.

Whoops! My bad. The script packet is surviving scripts only, and evidently Tunnel of Fear isn't one of those. Sad

Are they the same scripts as in previous releases?

Those scripts are all that survive. They have been advertised as the 'Series 1 Surviving Scripts' so StudioCanal have been above board about it, and at no time was a Tunnel of Fear script mentioned. No such script is known to exist.

I scanned and donated the scripts and that's all there is. Most of them have not been made available previously.

Many thanks for the scripts Alan.

I also emailed Studio canal for the download code. Told them I had enjoyed the DVD. Got a very nice reply and the link. i didn't even mention about them not being included on dvd but they apologised for the inconvenience in their reply. So feel they have tried to rectify this asap.

A pleasure. I've always wanted to share them but StudioCanal kept accidentally missing them off the releases.

For anyone interested in what's been released before, see those with asterisks below:

Hot Snow (Camera)
Brought to Book (Rehearsal) * (Camera)
Square Root of Evil (Camera)
Girl on the Trapeze (Camera)
The Radioactive Man (Camera)
Ashes of Roses (Camera)
Please Don't Feed the Animals (Camera)
Dance with Death (Camera)
One for the Mortuary (Rehearsal)
The Springers (Camera)
The Frighteners (Dialogue) *
The Yellow Needle (Camera)
Double Danger (Rehearsal) * (Camera) *
Toy Trap (Camera)
Kill the King (Camera)
A Change of Bait (Camera) *
Dead of Winter (Rehearsal - as 'The Un-Dead')

* Previously released commercially

So 14 are previously unreleased.

Studio Canal emailed me the scripts a few days ago. Haven't had a chance to read them yet, but I'm especially looking forward to reading how Hot snow ends, not to mention Seed's first ever appearance. A real shame the rest of the episode seems to be lost forever. Thanks for making these scripts available Alan. Very Happy Rich.

Someone on facebook mentioned buying a download copy, where would they have bought that?
