5.0 out of 5 stars A technically poor transfer of an excellent BBC drama, 15 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Murder Rooms - The Kingdom Of Bones - The Inspiration behind Sherlock Holmes [DVD] (DVD)
This series of Murder Rooms films is BBC drama at its best and The Kingdom of Bones is my personal favourite, broadening the series out from Sherlock Holmes pastiche and telling an ingenious "story behind" the inspiration for The Lost World. How disappointing to find that the DVD picture quality is no better than that you'd get from a bog-standard VHS tape, with poor contrast, high levels of grain, and artefacting in almost every shot. Most disappointing of all - it's not even widescreen! Incredibly, the picture is 4x3 and not the 16x9 in which it was shown. This is a careless, bargain-basement treatment of a drama that deserves much better. Five stars for the content: two for the disc!
