The Derren Brown Trick Of The Mind Series 1 DVD reveals the astounding craft of one of the world's leading psychological illusionists. With his unique skills and tricks, Derren Brown both amazes and disturbs people--including, in this series, celebrities such as Martin Kemp and Stephen Fry. Trick Of The Mind is the much anticipated follow-up to "Derren Brown Inside Your Mind" and, as such, his visual and psychological stunts are executed on a much bigger and more adventurous scale. Watch this DVD in awe as the UK's number one showman fuses the power of suggestion, psychology and misdirection to predict and control human behaviour.

I've knocked off one star for the poor quality sound track.
Do buy it though. Kick off your slingbacks, open your packet of Hobnobs and relax. Let the master entertain you for nearly three hours. (Don't try the trick with the nail at home though- it's not clever and it's not hygenic!)
The effects, tricks, - however you describe what he does - well, you will be wondering forever "how did he do that?" (even after you believe he has "explained" it all) - each performed with professionalism yet respecting the intelligence of the viewer. The celebrity guests add to the fun.
The soundtrack sometimes dips in quality, hence the 4 (not 5) stars. This, however, should not detract from your enjoyment. Here is a confident illusionist showing us how clever he really is - and letting us join in. The first DVD makes a perfect partner to this if you haven't seen DVB at work before but be prepared for a varying appearance in goatee and hairstyle!!
Personally, I'm looking forward to a boxed set with Russian Roulette, Seance, Messiah and The Gathering in it.
I love Derren Brown but would have liked longer extras and his latest series on Channel 4 ( after this ) was also a better series- showing more of his potential and wit.So Ok because its Derren but poor marks for the dvd extras.Not a classic, and only really for serious fans ( who have to have all his work )or those who missed the series.
To echo the previous reviewer, I too had a faulty disk, which meant I couldn't access the commentary - however, a new disk is currently on its way, so hopefully I will be able to enjoy a bit more of Derren's charming banter. The geezer is seriously talented - buy the DVD and have a look!
The series would usually get 5 stars but I have given it just 4. This is due to the disappointing amount of extras on the type of DVD where you would expect extras in abundance. I also feel, in terms of the show itself, that Derren has improved with age and is even better now than he was here. He is still outstanding but at times the repetitive 'how many fingers am I holding up' and 'read your mind for 10p' routines get rather tiresome. In addition to this, the DVD version (whereby you can watch episodes in succession) means that you also get very bored of the over-the-phone hypnosis.
Derren Brown is a genius, no doubt about that, and his shows are amazing. I have had the pleasure of seeing him live and was not disappointed. Sometimes, having also watched Series 2, this series relies too much on continued small routines which appear in several episodes (as I have mentioned). The second series is much stronger as it takes longer routines and allows them to be explored in more depth. There is also no repetition between episodes with each having an entirely new routine rather than filling in with previous ideas.
The jury is also still out for me on the Primary School routine. I still don't think the image of the teddy bear really transmitted itself to the kids. As Derren probably now knows, being a genius, those kids just wanted to make a mess with brown paint and probably were not remotely listening to the teacher read the story. Unfortunately this reduced the effect of the entire routine, as the rest of it involving the teacher's interpretation was executed brilliantly.Read more ›
