A lovely bumper TOS-piece today with details on a number of lovely brilliant sounding extras for the Back to Earth DVD, expanding somewhat on the hints we’ve been seeing recently.
Cuh, you wait all week for more Dwarf related BBFC entries, then all of a sudden, a fuckload of them turn up all at once. We’ll get the stuff we already know about out of the way – namely the Directors Cut, and various bits of commentary – and linger a little longer on some more interesting entries…
Ooh, it’s started, I knew it would. Features from the forthcoming Back To Earth DVD release have started showing up on the BBFC website. Nothing massively interesting just yet, but we’ll be keeping an eye on it over the coming weeks. If you lot spot any before us, post them in this thread!
Ah, @bobbyllew. What would we do without you? Thanks to Teatime’s interrogation, he’s let slip that Doug Naylor is recording a commentary for Back To Earth. In fact, he’s doing it RIGHT NOW. (Well, he was doing an hour ago, and the show’s quite long…)
We already knew there’d be a cast commentary too, of course, and they’re recording that today too. Here’s a picture to prove it. How can they look so young and beautiful in costume, and yet so old and haggard in their civvies?
Ah, this is more like it. None of that brand new episodes nonsense for us – what we want is carefully filtered details of forthcoming releases of things we’ve already seen, along with massive piles of information about the behind-the-scenes minutia. Luckily, today’s TOS update has delivered in spades…
A show insider has emailed us to reveal the following exclusive news: the Back To Earth DVD will be released on June 15th – a mere two months after the last episode is broadcast. There are no details as to extras so far, other than the promise that there will be “in-depth bonus material guaranteed to inform and entertain”, much like the regular series releases. Excellent.
