Customer Review

on 17 December 2007
This DVD is the the League at their very best. Elegant plotting, subtle acting and pacy editting means there is little flab to the 3 stories. Arguably series 3 is a slight dissapointment and even the second series isn't entirely successful but this seasonal offering is great. Charlie & Stella's sub plot is funny and has a genuinely scary twist; Her Lipp handles his part magnificently (well he would ... woudn't he ?) and Dr Chinnery's tale is a lesson to be careful about working with animals. Quite simply it is perfect - no flat jokes, no bad acting. It's just a shame that since then their output has dried up. (Series 3 takes itsself WAY too seriously and their movie and live dvds are good but not great.

It has the best selection of extras of any TV show I have ever seen. A commentary, a lengthy radio interview, a documentary on the influence the Amicus horror movies had on the show, a "jackanory" version of the third tale, loads of deleted scenes & easter eggs a plenty. Even the pre-FX and after FX footage is interesting.

Unsuprisingly its rating were dissapointing as it was scheduled in a graveyard slot. It's a shame as it deserves a wider audience and why it didn't it win a BAFTA? If you watch this and respond by saying "baah ...humbug" you deserve a good stuffing you turkey ... (Herr Lipp has a pair of rubber gloves ready.)
