10 discs! That's a lot of DM.
The stories are still excellent, the voices classic and the characters as good as they always have been. For someone approaching their forties that used to love dangermouse this is a great box-set that's sure to have their favourite episode and loads of others that they might not even remember.
These are the original TV series. If your memory is like mine, then nostalgia will paint the images in crisp, sharp colours with crystal clear sound. In reality, they were hand-drawn and often stylised water-clour backgrounds over which the animation happened and the sounds can be a hit hissy on a modern AV setup. So be warned, nostalgia is great until it becomes more than memory...
But really, what's not to like. There's DM, Colonel K, Penfold, Baron Greenback, Nero and Stiletto plus the endless assortment of minor villains and bit-parts. It's just like being back in the 1980s. For 10 whole discs!
