MINI-REVIEWS

“As enchanting as you remember!”

The second DVD is now available from all good retailers and it's great to see the series again with perfect picture and sound quality. The magic lasts through all ten episodes that are featured in their entirety. The charm of the series is there from episode one and spans the series to the climatic showdown. The laughs and comedy is there with the plot of the quest for the silver numbers keeping up the pace.

The cover of the DVD evokes the feeling of the series, the silver numbers floating from the book captures the essence perfectly. The description on the back cover and the photographs of T-Bag, T-Shirt, Debbie and Hickory would make the DVD recognisable to those who have faded memories the series.

The DVD menus again are interactive and plays on the storybook theme. The episode selection menu in the guise of the town clock with silver numbers for episodes one to ten is inspired - I wonder what Revelation Films will come up with for the next DVD.

The DVD extras are well put together. Episode commentaries return with Elizabeth Estensen, John Hasler and Jennie Stallwood on brilliant form remembering, with a great deal of affection, the episodes and the time in production. The extras also include a photo gallery, much longer than the last series DVD now including photographs by Lee Pressman and Grant Cathro - an excellent addition. The final extra is a gallery of sketches from the designer John Plant, these are courtesy of me (and the website) after I purchased them from John's family, these have been included as something special for the fans - I hope you like them!

To sum up this is a wonderful DVD, a treat for fans of the series. Revelation Films have struck gold again. I'd recommend the DVD to everyone who watched the series back in the 1980's to relive it - it really is as enchanting as you remember! Buy it now - you won't regret it.
