I have just been rewatching this DVD with the audio commentary and as your eyes tend to wander a bit as you listen to the commentary I have noticed a fault on episode 2.When you get to 10 mins and 25 seconds into the episode there appears a black dot in the background which stays in the same spot as the camera moves and doesn't disappear until the credits appear.I have checked footage on YouTube culled from the VHS version and this dot is not present on those versions.I wonder if this is a fault of the restoration work and was not noticed prior to release.I know I'm being fussy but once you notice it it becomes very difficult to take your eyes off it! I just thought I would mention it as any input would be welcome and before you say it's my televison screen I have checked this out on my other DVD setups and it is the same...and yes..I am being fussy! No I don't want an exchange or a refund but any explanation why it's there on this remastered version and not on the previous ones would be welcome!

Hi there,funnily enough I was viewing this the other night for the first time,and yes I noticed it too.
Hastily polishing the TV screen woudn't remove the dot,which as you quite rightly say,is noticeable.
Perhaps there could be a faulty batch out there on sale...

Hello I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me - I too noticed the mysterious black dot. Saying that it didn't spoil my enjoyment of The Domonators.
