    Looks like the series is getting a BD release on 10/23/17 by Network in the UK. I'll wait for reviews before I buy it but this makes me glad I stuck with my A&E DVD set when that other set came out a couple of years ago because as much as I like this series I probably wouldn't buy it a third time.

    Not quite sure what you are saying, something about waiting for reviews before buying, although probably not buying, and not a third time even though you did not buy the second time???

    Anyway good news about the release, this show scared the shit out of me as a child, I'm sure it won't have the same effect now but I look forward to revisiting.

    Lol. I'm sorry. Your post and hots4's response made me think of this. Just going for a laugh, no offense intended.

    Since I only own the first DVD release I’ll buy this new BD release if the reviews are good. Had I bought both DVD releases I would be reluctant to buy this a third time on any format though.

    All makes sense now!

    From the comments on the sleeve 'newly restored in HD' it sounds promising and the fact it's getting a blu ray release is another positive, from my experience of network if they don't have the quality they will restrict releases to DVD only, Time and reviews will tell, but I think this should deliver.

    Glad to hear that about Network, the name sounds familiar to me but I don't think I own anything from them on BD or DVD. Hopefully it's a good one, I saw most of this series as a kid as well and while it didn't have the same effect when I revisited it on DVD many years later it was still a pretty good show, imo.

    Never saw this series, but as a Hammer fan this is probably my best opportunity.

    As a Hammer fan, I'm sure you'll find most of this series enjoyable, S-S. Individual episodes are of variable quality, but the bulk of them are good, and several are absolute gems.

    I really enjoyed Hammer House of Horror but wish they'd re-release Hammer's House of Mystery and Suspense. I've still never seen this, dammit!

    Glad to hear that. Lots of familiar faces in this short lived series, but I am looking forward to seeing the Peter Cushing episode most. Hope that's a good one.

    It is. Most fans consider it the pinnacle of the series.

    It's only £6.49 now! :eek::eek::eek:

    How bad are Zavvi about cancelling orders if this is actually just a pricing error? I've ordered from them quite a few times before, but rarely for pre-orders.

    Edit: found this on their website:
