The Bodysnatcher Collection: £13.97 at Amazon

Finally. After staying at £40 for four years – a fair price back in 2007, but ludicrous now – we finally see a price reduction for The Bodysnatcher Collection.

So come on, anyone who’s been holding out – there’s no reason not to get it now. Having rewatched Bodysnatcher recently for an upcoming podcast I’m doing, I think it’s easily worth £13.97 in itself – let alone everything that comes with it. I still get stupidly excited when popping the first disc in to be greeted by this…

If you need any more convincing, why not check out our review from 2007? I spent fucking ages on it, go on.

  1. For me, the only drawback with ‘The Bodysnatcher Collection’ is that it really makes me wish that the Series I – VIII DVDs had commentaries with Rob and/or Doug and Ed!

    Horribly true.

    Go on GNP. Make this happen.

    Chuck a Sound FX documentary in there, along with Doug, Rob and Ed/Andy/Juliet commentaries. I’d be willing to double dip for that alone…

    Same here! I would love more than anything for that DVD to come to fruition. Years ago, I would’ve said that about ‘The Bodysnatcher Collection’. Who knows, there could be re-releases in the future during Anniversaries, for one thing. I can only hope, cross my fingers… and pester GNP till this happens.

  5. “for an upcoming podcast I’m doing” I like this statement.

    Thanks! No guarantee you’ll think that once you’ve heard it, mind.

    There won’t be much new about Bodysnatcher in it – it’s mainly trying to get it a bit more widely known outside hardcore fandom. Cos I think it deserves it.

  7. Sounds like a good aim for a podcast, It will at least make me re-watch. :-)

  8. From the official website:

    Originally released in November 1997, The Bodysnatcher Collection was the concluding chapter of the ‘classic Dwarf’ DVD releases.

    I’ll let you write your own snarky comment.

  9. Glad to see that this has come down in price.

    £40 was a lot of money and I remember that I had to debate long and hard over whether to buy it when it was released due to the cost. The fact that I did suggests that it was worth the money but I hadn’t hesitated for a moment when buying any of the Series I-VIII DVDs.

    The current price should make it a no-brainer for any fans though.

  10. I didn’t buy it when it first came out either, for similar reasons.

    I did buy it a while ago though. I forget how much I actually paid, but I remember it was pretty reasonable.

  11. For the past few days, clicking on the amazon link – and the play.com link that the TOS article provides – it seems that they’ve reverted back to their original, slightly expensive prices :oS

  12. It’s nice that even though they no longer care about us, the BBC will still give us a good bargain on what is possibly the best Red Dwarf DVD set in the universe ever!

    BBC Worldwide (who’d run the BBC shop) never stopped caring about Dwarf. They part own UKTV and so contributed to ‘Back to Earth’ and Series X as well as giving the DVDs a good budget so they aren’t just edited episodes stuck on one disc like other BBC releases…

    Ah. Good point.

    Fuck Amazon and Play. What a load of bollocks.

    Price at BBC Shop is £15.45 with delivery, which still a great price for what you get.

  16. > I’m not sure what you’d find in the BBC shop for £2.45 or less… but you never know!

    Just pre-order Miracle Day to make up the amount…or, alternatively, seeing as it’s frankly a bit of a mess (and I’m not just talking about ‘oh yes, this juddery fudge video quality will look fine at 9pm on BBC1 for 10 weeks’ ), don’t.

    Incidentally, I can’t wait to see if that dodgy non-conversion ends up on the PAL DVD and Blu-ray.

  17. Did this really come out in 2007? Fucker.

  18. One of the most eagerly anticipated DVD’s I’ve ever brought, and it delivered 200%. Well worth the money!
