4.0 out of 5 stars Worth getting for the special features alone, 25 July 2006
I would defintely recommend this new 2 disc Ultimate Edition to anyone who really likes this film. Unlike some of the other Bond DVDs, Sony have put together an excellent package of documentaries and deleted scenes as well as importing the extras over from the old release, which together amounts to a great deal of fascinating behind the scenes footage and interviews that movie buffs will lap up.

However, if you only want to get it for the improvement in picture quality, I honestly wouldn't bother, as this edition looks nigh on identical to the previous special edition, bar the removal of a few of the more distracting picture blemishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars London's Burning at its absolute peak, 24 July 2006
Series 3 of 'London's Burning' is definitely one of the best, combining some of the most dramatic, action-packed storylines with some meaty subplots and a terrifically humorous set of scripts by the the brilliant Anita Bronson, a writer of whose caliber today's television is severely lacking. Add to this wonderful characters in the shape of Station Office Sydney Tate and Area Commander Bulstrode played brilliantly by 'Blake's 7's' Gareth Thomas, and you have an absolute winner of a series that demands to be viewed again and again.

Series 3 also marked the time when ITV started injecting extra money into the show to beef up the set pieces, and the credit for this goes to the producer Paul Knight, who was told by ITV bosses to cut the budget, and instead replied 'No. It's one of your top-rated dramas. I want an extra 100,000 per episode!', the results of which are here for all to see. Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars Timeless classic given terrible treatment on DVD, 19 Aug 2005
I was immensely please to see that this series was finally to become available on DVD. With a company like Warners behind it, I felt sure that they would have given the series the treatment it deserved. How wrong I was.
Rather than re-mastering all the episodes, Warners have elected just to redo TWO out of thirteen, with the rest (presumably out of stinginess) being done off old CRI prints which are dull, dirty and lifeless, with poor black details. This is even more annoying since the two which have been remastered look truly sublime.
Until consumers decide to boycott discs which have been done 'on the cheap', especially by multi-million dollar companies like Warners, they will continue to be foisted with rubbish like this.
