    £79.99 at Play won't you have to pay import duty on that though due to it being over £20 like the DVD's??

    You won't on CD's and DVD's under £20 - that is why when you order multiple discs on a single order they get sent singularly.

    If you order a DVD over £20 then I think it comes up with a disclaimer stating that you will be liable to pay customs charges if they pick up on it.

    You won't pay any import charges as this is a UK product. You only run the risk of dutycharges when you order imported goods.
