Series IV DVD Preview: Byte One

Well, here we are – another completely uneducated guess at the upcoming Series IV DVD, padded out with completely irrelevant asides to camera. Mind you, I’m sure you’re all intelligent enough to distinguish between facts taken from a combination of the DVD Details articles and entries on the BBFC, and my OPINION ON STUFF I […]

We e-mailed DVD Associate Producer Andrew Ellard, on the off chance that he might provide us with a little interview. He agreed, and wasn’t put off when ‘little’ expanded to ‘fucking huge’. We send Andrew lots and lots of hugs and kisses for all his help, and his intriguing and honest answers.
