The two disc BBC release of Maddigan's Quest is barebones but adequate. There are seven episodes on disc 1 and the final six episodes on disc 2. The menu gives you the option of selecting an episode or playing all the episodes, and that is all. There are no subtitles, secondary languages, alternate audio channels (DTS, DD 5.1) or "making of" documentaries. The picture quality is fine throughout. There is a short bumper in front of each episode from episode two on, describing in under 30 seconds what happened previously. The BBC released this DVD fast. The Australasian Region 4 version is supposed to have a release date around November 2006, with extras features, which will probably include a documentary on the filming of this New Zealand film series. Time will tell. For now, the BBC release fills the bill nicely for those who just want to see the entire series.
