    I've only had a brief look so far. My initial reaction is a slight feeling of disappointment as this DVD isn't as well-made and as loaded with extras as most of the previous ones. However, I watched part of the documentary, and that at least seems as wonderful as ever.

    I also love the reversible cover with the picture of Jesus on the spine.

    I just got the blu-ray today. Although the docu is interesting, I must admit i'm a little disappointed it isn't laid out v similar to past series, it just seems a lot more disorganised. No music cues either, that is a big shame. It's weird to see footage in HD but not 'film quality'. Overall though, v happy with it. I knew it was a rush job and things were tight, but I didn't know Doug (and co?) had to PAY for the audience themselves and he wrote/finished two of the scripts over two weeks for Xmas. It's a miracle it all didn't just blow up!

    My pleasure. :-D It seems the requests are flooding in for this. I'm glad people like it and it's getting some use.

    Peter's cover is fantastic, showing great effort and taste.:-D
    Many thanks to him for taking the time to send me it.

    I wish they'd hired him to do the RDX DVD cover because I think the one we got was amateur at best, that includes the reverse cover.

    A conversation over matching spines resulted in CaptnDan showing us his DVD spines:

    CaptnDan then posted a link you your covers.

    On a seperate note: Have you considered making a BluRay version if you have the psd file, the time and lots of patience :-D

    Got paid today, and I'm now the proud owner of Series X.

    Just thought I'd knock up a little alternate DVD cover, I wanted to go for the same vibe as the standard outside cover but make it more artistic and hopefully more towards the standard we're used to. I think it turned out vaguely resembling the sleek Back to Earth Cover.

    Sorry, too big to post here!

    That's pretty good, Lemon. The main background image works well.

    As much as I enjoy a matching BTE cover, it takes away the novelty of having the characters take the DVD cover out in the store, and having a replica of it be the real DVD cover. It's a 4th wall breaking joke in a 4th Wall breaking special.

    I'll admit I have considered it and do have the psd file and the patience, but it's the time that I'm lacking. :-)
    Shouldn't be too hard though really, just chopping off the top and moving stuff down a bit. I'll give it a try when I get the chance, maybe over the christmas period.

    I will be getting this at some point and am really looking forward to watching the extras. Which reminds me - must actually get round to watching some of the commentaries on the original DVDs and may watch one tonight.

    Does anyone else wish blu-rays came in DVD cases? They look so ugly compared to shelves of DVDs and stand out like a sore thumb.

    while I know this is a little cheeky, does anyone have a copy of PeterMoore's awesome BtE cover? I am itching to recover my copy and am not sure how often the author is on here. Full thanks and all that to PeterMoore and anyone who can send it to me. :-)

    cheers

    Just a quick question, but do the DVD's eliminate the 'Red Dwarf X' inter-titles that marked the advert break?
