Early Bird Surprise

A quick heads up; a number of Woolworths stores across the United Kingdom are selling copies of the complete Torchwood series one DVD boxset - a full week before it's supposed to hit shelves. I was alerted to the early leak via the OutpostGallifrey forum, and immediately set out to my nearest store, in Cheetham Hill, which had about five copies ready to sell.

I bought one, for £47, and have spent the day watching the special features.

The full contents of the boxset can be seen below:

Disc One

- Deleted scenes (11'06'')

Disc Two

- "Out of this World" featurettes for episodes 3, 4 and 5

Disc Three
- "Countrycide" (commentary by Chris Chibnall, Andy Goddard and Gareth David-Lloyd)

Disc Four

Disc Five

Disc Six
- "Captain Jack Harkness" (commentary by Richard Stokes, Ashley Way and John Barrowman)
- "End of Days" (commentary by Richard Stokes, Ashley Way and John Barrowman)
- "Moments in the Making" Officer and a Gentleman / Bombing the Base
- "Torchwood on Time" featurette (10'11'')
- Deleted Scenes (14'20'')
- Outtakes (5'37'')

Disc Seven
- All 14 episodes of "Torchwood Declassified"

It's a swell boxset (if only I hadn't bought the three individual DVDs earlier on in the year, I wouldn't be almost £100 out of pocket now!) The only downside about the whole thing is Woolworths crappy secrurity tag - the way it's stuck on the front cover means part of the boxset tears away when you peel it off.

But a week early ain't so bad. Get to Woolies now!
