Red Dwarf News - Just the Shows BOX SET

From the official site...

With the individual Red Dwarf DVDs leaving the shelves like hot cakes (though cooler to the touch), it may seem a strange time to launch a Series 1 to 4 box set. But this isn't what you might have been expecting. At all.



Rather than whack the extras-laden two-disc sets into a box - which no doubt would have annoyed those who patiently bought each series as it was released - Red Dwarf: Just the Shows - Volume 1 gives the casual fan a chance to pick up the episodes without any bonus material. Just the Shows - does exactly what it says on the tin... er, box.

Pictured here is the digipack box art for the four-disc set, which is now scheduled for release on October 18th with a recommended retail price of 34.99

Also pictured are the main DVD menus for each series. As with the box art, a deliberate attempt has been made to keep the style of these releases separate from the main - to let them stand alone. The single-screen menus will not be animated, and though there will be background music, this is about as 'vanilla' a release as it's possible to get.

Still, Red Dwarf is Red Dwarf and Just the Shows - Volume 1 is very much designed for those who use bonus discs as coasters. It's a chance to get straight to the episodes as seen on TV - and a handy back-up for the Red Dwarf fan looking to "travel light, move fast"!

In the meantime, Series I, II, III and IV are still available in two-disc sets, packed with commentaries, documentaries, outtakes, deleted scenes and featurettes. Series V is due out on November 8th in both the regular form and as a gift set with Corgi's brand new Starbug model.
