Better to go for the full HH set if you like value for money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Horrible Histories - Scary Halloween Special [DVD] (DVD)
Horrible Histories is a brilliant series and I'd recommend that you buy the boxed set Horrible Histories - Series 1-5 [DVD] rather than this 30 minute compilation.
The theme of this DVD is Simon Farnaby's character - Mr De'Ath - doing a comic linking song to introduce 10 scary scenes - all of which have been taken from previous series of Horrible Histories. The only original thing on this DVD is Simon's linking song, and there are no extras. None at all. Not a sausage. No outtakes, no songs, zippity doo dah.
So I can see why people who are big fans of the series aren't too pleased. I've bought the DVD for completeness (and because I think Simon is brilliant), but we get one new song for our money, which seems a bit like the Beeb abusing the fan base. If you can resist the alluring Simon and all his teeth, I'd suggest you go for the boxed set.
