Great production, poor CD release
on 15 August 2012
As a child, Batman Knightfall was one of the greatest experiences of my young life: a superb 2-tape set of an amazing production. Sadly, the tape eventually broke but thankfully there was a 3-cd set released in the states. That, however, chose to simply cut out at the end of each CD, rather than choosing a sensible place to stop. Thus CD1 ended with Bane saying "We will let him run a little more of the gauntlet"END OF CD, START CD2 and Bane carries on his sentence!
This later UK CD-set mentions on the back some new sound fx and so on, which made me hope some more care had been taken with the release. What the back doesn't mention is that a lot of dialogue has been cut, reshuffled or broken up, which probably won't bother the casual buyer, but to me it is incredibly irritating and phoney sounding.
Surely the BBC is not getting infected with George Lucas-itis.
