Looks like it is due this November and there is also a rough draft of the cover up at http://www.reddwarf.co.uk/

"We will confirm the actual release date as soon as we can. It is going to be sometime in November

The DVD will be packed with bonus material just like Series 1 & 2 including out takes and interviews plus much more that we can not reveal to you yet as it's still in production!"

Great news

In fairness, a lot of the key personnel have been involved in making the Red Dwarf movie, which may account for the apparently sluggish release schedule.

I must admit that I'm salivating at the prospect of this DVD. The standards of the last disc were high, and series 3,4, and 5 are my favourites. Sorry you guys across the Herring Pond have to wait another few months. :frowning:

is there any difference between the region 1 and 2 discs they're releasing (or have released) as far as features etc

The only difference is that a montage of drinking scenes is missing that used the Chumbawumba "Tubthumping" song that they didn't have rights to in the US

It's still used all over the place, and it's still big in the UK. A minimum of $10,000, probably closer to $30 as high as $50,000

For a 3min montage of drinking clips

Not worth it

Silly question this early I know, but will they release Series 3 & 4 together like they did 1 & 2?? The RD site only seems to list Series 3 *hmmm*

I'll try to be patient while waiting *runs off to pop series 1 & 2 back into dvd player*

Yes, that's the plan. UK releases are November & February and US releases are in February. One only hopes that they speed this process up after the movie wraps or I'll be 30 before Series 7 & 8 come out!

I couldn't find cover art for Series 3 & 4 at the official site. Can anyone point me to the pics?

It might also be of interest, as I mentioned when I posted this news 2 weeks ago ( :wink: ), is that these are also going to be available together in a 2-Pack on the same release date. Though the SRP ends up being about the same, it's probable that retailers will sell the combo pack for less then getting the separate releases.


P.S. - don't forget that "Additionally, the first 30,000 units will contain a limited edition, exclusive trading card set!"
