5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent mini series, 25 May 2006
This is an excellent mini-series and is well worth getting. IMHO you should avoid the Hollywood film version like the plague as it reshapes the story into a comedy. The mini-series did have elements of black comedy but it was never a laugh-riot.

Please note that this DVD does contain the full series (it was four parts NOT six as stated by another reviewer). However some of the music has been altered due to rights issues.

1.0 out of 5 stars Botch Job!, 22 Sep 2004
This is one of my favourite films so I was really looking forward to it's release on DVD. I'm not overly bothered about extras when a film makes it's debut on this format but I like to have a pristine version of the film. Unfortunately one of the best scenes in the film - when Holmes visits his mother - has been truncated. All the priceless dialogue between Holmes and his mother has been lost. The scene fades out just after the line "Don't mention death infront of Iris!". So we lose all the stuff about Mrs Holmes health, the visit by her brother Bernard, her row with Mrs Brett and her stroke!
The company that put this out should be ashamed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, gorgeous, wonderful!, 27 Jun 2000
A wonderful pan-sexual romp. Take a Mills and Boon novel, add a dash of rampant sexuality, a pinch of high camp acting, mix with some expressionistic sets and bring to the boil in glorious Technicolor. Buy it I say, buy it now!
