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


It's on Amazon Prime, AIUI, Piers.

And thanks for the plaudits, though they're really not necessary at all. Just pleased that people are happy with the scripts and the package in general. Smile

Cheers, Many Thanks!!! Razz I will look forward to the whole material and the report. Wink

It's an unexpected to see that while the DVD cover is almost identical to the British, the image on the disc is quite different - more simplistic. Wonder why was decided go to this option. Confused In any case, the result as for disc looks pretty nice, thanks to a combination of color and text placement. Smile

There are no information about PDF scripts on the DVD cover, turns it's not included in the set like the British edition? Wink

Thanks for sharing, ishtar.

Also worth noting that the Big Finish audio adaptation is not present (presumably for language reasons).

Is the booklet included? (Translated?)

It is a pity, but the series 1 scripts are not included on the DVD;
the extras are the two UTV interviews with Ian Hendry and Patrick Macnee, the John Dorney interview, the series one episodes reconstructions and the Big Finish adaption of the episode (=Hörspiel Tunnel of Fear, they do not mention Big Finish productions here).

For some reasons there are German subtitles only, I can't understand why they did not include the English subs.

Sadly there is no booklet for the German customers and the summary for the episode is awful!

Many thanks, Alan, for these points. A good detailed approach is similar to the quality of your books. Smile

It's sad to hear that "the incident with PFD scripts" is present in the German DVD edition too despite the fact that it was almost predictable. Sad Fortunately, other bonuses are available, although all interviews do not have German subtitles.

This would already be an advantage for the German DVD edition if they included English subtitles, in this case I'd be happy for you, Chris. Smile However, you're right, actually, for an unclear reason (at least for part of Avengers fans, including me) StudioCanal went different ways in some nuances with the British and German DVD edition, while in the case of Blu Ray there was otherwise (there were changes but to a much lesser extent).

It's interesting, are you enjoy with the quality of German subtitles, Chris? Wink

Does anyone know where Tunnel of Fear can be purchased for download outside UK? I live in Australia, and Amazon UK won't accept a non-UK credit card.

Thanks

Really? It accepts my Aussie credit card, I've been a member for a long time.
Visa is your best bet but Amazon claims to accept all major cards.

Is there any news yet on a fixed disk with the pdf scripts in place? It's a deal-breaker for me.

Having bought and received the DVD, many thanks to all involved making the DVD possible and writing / editing the booklet!

A wonderful moment to experience, one new Avengers episode.

I agree, I've watched it twice through and again to do my capture run so I'll be updating the episode on my site soon. Did you notice Steed' Rolls Royce, and that he uses the code word "delta" whenever he rings One-Ten?

StudioCanal have confirmed they will not be issuing a fixed disc.

Yes the Rolls was a surprise to me, early Steed drove more normal cars, but this is full fledged Steed bowler, brolly and Rolls.
