Got the DVD for Xmas and have just binged it.  Sensational drama, deserves all the praise it's received .

I've been wanting to pick it up on Blu-Ray for a while, but you can get a sense of how popular it's been by the price it sells for  :blink:

Incidentally...and this will only be of interest to tech geeks, so look away now...the UK Blu-Ray bizarrely only provides a 1080i picture, whereas the rest of Europe and America gets full 1080p for their Blu-Ray. I was going to splurge on Amazon's £24.99 Steelbook Edition until I discovered that it's the same.

Basically, the picture quality isn't as good on the UK release. The American Blu-Ray is region locked so, if you fancy picking it up and you're going to be in Europe sometime soon, wait and grab a copy while you're over there. And buy me a copy of their steelbook too, please - I'm good for the money  :angel

Why can't you be good for nothing like the rest of us?

A lot of DVD and Blu-ray players have input codes to make them region free , worth googling your model.

I bought an old PlayStation 3 years ago purely for using as a Blu-Ray player. Safe to say I'm hosed as far as that goes, considering Sony owns the Blu-Ray patents  :lol:

Not a big deal - eventually it'll come down in price and I'll pick up a Euro copy from eBay or wherever. I don't think the steelbook comes with anything extra, so it's a bit of a waste of money anyway.

HD version available on Amazon Prime video for £9.99 if that's your thing.
