Easter Eggs
Can you find the hidden extras?

You can see how we've had to pack every disc to the brim to fit on all the content - well over 14 hours worth, not counting four and a half hours of commentaries and nine hours of text tracks. And yes, we've chucked in a couple of Easter Eggs that are well worth hunting for.

The content itself is all the stuff you've heard about if you've been reading this DVD Details section regularly. Plus there's a nifty compilation of remastering effects shots, which includes a fair few moments that have so far gone unseen, and the Mobisode.

A... what?

Well, it's an animated clip of Red Dwarf, part of a new venture for the franchise... and something you'll see covered in more detail on soon. That's all we're saying for now.

Back to the DVDs, though, and the disc structure is interesting - with each of the four DVDs named for a different element of the show.

Series I, II and III Remastered belong to Red Dwarf, Blue Midget and Starbug respectively, which is in keeping with the way the regular series releases were themed. Meanwhile the 'bonus disc' isn't named that way. We consider it to be 'disc one'... though we haven't called it that, either. Instead it will be entitled the Bodysnatcher Disc.

You could guess that maybe these themes will be represented by the DVD menus themselves. And if you did, you'd be right. But we're saving that little surprise for another update - along with revelations about that all-important Collector's Booklet.

More DVD Details will follow soon...

Red Dwarf: The Bodysnatcher Collection will be out in the UK on October 22nd, and in Australia in December. Pre-order now!
