Brilliant but slightly odd but very nice

Great series, crap DVDs. At least so far.

I finished watching the second adventure tonight. In addition to film grain and soundtrack hiss, there's obtrusive static and several other glitches... at one point the soundtrack just goes dead for a second, eliminating a piece of dialogue...

Grief, I'd thought in the days of DVDs we'd left this sort of thing behind!

It's quite possibly due to the original master tapes more than anything else. I remember Carlton saying they weren't sure if a DVD release was possible because the tapes had deteriorated so much it would cost a huge amount of money to get them to a decent standard. And believe me, they're still far better than the video releases from a while back.

That's a shame for such a classic show. :/
