To The Point

Final Chapters - by Andrew Ellard

23 January, 2004

So we come to the Series IVChapter Points. Okay, maybe not quite the fanfare affair that new menu designs or interviews have become, but nevertheless an essential part of the DVD make-up.

To The Point

You all know the score by now. Each episode gets separated into nine chapters, with the first accessible on the menu from the 'Play Episode' button - the rest appear as moving 'Polaroids' tacked inside the crew lockers. Once again, it's a list created by collaboration - BBC Worldwide and Grant Naylor approaching from different angles to make sure it's as user-friendly as possible. Every classic scene has, as far as humanly possible, been given its own link, each one named in a way that should remind viewers of the content?without blowing the plot twists!

Okay, it's not the most exciting aspect of production. Even for those who were checking, in detail, the props and set decorations in the animated menus - "a light bee! That's a light bee on the counter! And the skutter's holding a balloon!" - this might all seem a little anticlimactic. But dammit, this stuff matters, and if we have to do it, you have to read about it. So there.

Oh, and while I'm on, the Collector's Booklet for Series IV looks like... well, like the pictures shown here. Next week's update, the deleted scene list, will be far more thrilling - promise.
