    Is the above new release presented as 6 individual episodes, or as one mammoth six hour cut? The box seems to indicate the latter :(

    Hi,

    The DVD contains episodes 1-3 joined together as one, massive 150m episode, and the same for episodes 4-6 on disc 2. There are no recaps and only one opening and closing credits sequence (at the beginning of episode 1 and end of episode 6 respectively).

    I knew this would be a bone of contention, which may be one of the reasons why the BBC are showing the episodes (with all the correct recaps for the previous episode) each Sunday night on BBC2 at 7:10pm. (Last night was episode two on BBC2.)

    Plus, the BBC version is full and uncut, with German audio/English subtitles and in widescreen as well!

    Pooch

    Thanks, Pooch.
    What a disappointment :(
    I was so looking forward to this. I'll be waiting for this to get in the sales bins before I buy, then.
