Customer Review

on 22 December 2008
Network did a great job on this set, great packaging and they really got the best out of that old film stock. They do blow their own trumpet a little (in the additional material section) showing just how bad the old stock was before being digitally "cleaned up".

However, given the transformation and the amount of effort they put into it, fair play to them. It's the best old series box set I've seen, the BBC just transfers to DVD, if you watch old BBC box sets you'll see how much better this set is for all the time and effort invested by Network.

As for the series itself, well, if you're interested in buying it cause you remember it from yesteryear, what are you waiting for!

It suffers from some odd incidental music at times (no budget) but it holds its own against anything from today and I'd say that it's better in many aspects. It'll take 3 or four episodes to get back into the hard hitting 70's, but once back in the groove you won't regret it.

Big thumbs up from me.
