DVD release (?!)

Post by thunder » Sun May 08, 2011 5:17 am

Amazon says DVD will be released on July 11 (but they have changed dates before). Maybe I don't have to wait so long after all?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Case-Histories- ... 49&sr=1-15

It's region 2.

I was on Amazon for something completely different. I practically never search for Jason Isaacs anymore, because I have pretty much bought everything. Maybe it was female intuition that made me search...? Glad I did! :D

Like the pic :woot

Only if you have a DVD player that is programmed for region 2. Most aren't.

Or, you could play it on your computer if you download (for free) VLC.

I am lending a friend series 8 of Spooks. My copy is region 2. She has a "ps3" (play-station 3 ?????) which she thinks will play it.

I will let this thread know if it does work.

Please do let me know if it works for her as I do have a PS3. If all else fails, I'll download the aforementioned program for PC playing, but I'd rather watch it on the {much bigger} TV screen.

It doesn't look like a DVD cover, so they will probably update that later (at least that's what I'm thinking).

Same pic here, but we see more surroundings:

The title says "series 1", so that means there's a chance for more, right? :woot

(we kinda knew that, but anyway...)

'TBC' in the book publishing industry is usually taken to mean 'To Be Confirmed' (depending on whether the publishing company can get the releases on artwork cleared before publication).

I did have hopes for a further series of Case Histories - before the BBC controller started complaining that there are "too many male detectives on TV".

Personally I'd be more concerned about there being too many women victims - but I don't run BBC drama.

Oh ....... I agree with you. Too many female victims. Mostly male writers bringing out their hostilities against women? I used to like Criminal Minds until it dawned on me that it seemed to be a contest as to who could think up the most horrifying death for the female victims. Very seldom men. Think about it.

I think the reason most victims in crime fiction/shows are women is because the reasons for a crime against a woman can be ascribed more often to passion/desire/jealousy etc ... and these emotions lead to more interesting plots which can be enjoyed by both sexes.

I don't think you can infer that male writers make their victims female as they have latent aggression towards women.

I don't know - do female writers have mainly male victims?

If the victim is male in fiction, the perpetrator of the crime is often female - is that better? :?: Which would you prefer - a female victim or a female psychopath?
