Fun Ghost! :D Can't remember if I've read that one or not. Is it new?

We've still got Red Dwarf lined up to watch on Netflix.

I had tried to get a collection of Red Dwarf dvd sets a few years ago (when it was still only up to season 8), but the only store around selling them were selling them at full retail, which here meant like $50-$70 per set. :?

CeX had both sets (1-4 and 5-8) of Red Dwarf for a total of £10. They're used copies but in very good condition. Cheaper to order each set seperately as it was a lot more for the 1-8 box set so it must have lots of extras.

Add £2.50 p&p per order and cex doesn’t put the quality of it's stock in the description

Does that vampire have braces?

I have a 'just the episodes' box set of Red Dwarf. Much, much cheaper than the ones with all the extras, which I don't tend to watch anyway.

For Christmas I asked for anything with Neil Oliver in it & my husband bought me S1-5 of Coast :) . UK, small island BIG coastline.

No you're not. :) The first eight series were made by the BBC, then there was a special called Back To Earth that is generally thought of as series 9. Series 10 was not made or shown on the BBC (I think), but is well worth seeing. Incidentally, the case for series ten has a reversible cover that will match with the other eight series.

Back To Earth is interesting and has a lot of Bladerunner influences (amongst others) as well as a visit to a famous British street . . . :whistle:

Back to Earth and Series 10 were made and shown by the TV channel called Dave.

It is part-owned by the BBC!

Thanks Tony and Bouncy. I'm on the trail now.
Ghost, I don't mind paying the £2.50 p&p to CeX. This covers an entire order so my daughter and I save up a wishlist, do one big order and it works out very reasonable. I've had no problems with the company. They've always sent what I ordered promptly after an email saying the order has been received and another when it's dispatched. They have a 12 month guarantee on everything but I've had no complaints and I know everything is pre-owned. To use a couple of tired cliches here....when push comes to shove, beggars can't be choosers ;)
