Brit comedy on R1 DVD (Only Fools and Horses, Vicar of Dibley and more)

Warner Home Video have announced several new British comedy series for Region 1 DVD release this October (alongside the previously announced first series of The Office).

First up we have Only Fools and Horses: Complete Series 1-3 that will street on 7th October 2003 with a retail price of $79.98. As the title suggests you will find the first three series presented in one box set in their original Full Screen aspect ratios with English Stereo sound. Bonus features on the set include...

  • Christmas specials from each season PLUS the rarely seen 'Christmas Trees' skit
  • Documentary : In this 60-minute behind the scenes special, 'The Story of Only Fools and Horses,' the writer and stars reveal the secrets of making Britain's best-loved TV series
  • Learn the Lingo of Del with the Peckham Concise Trotter Dictionary
  • Biographies
  • Photo Gallery
Also set to arrive on 7th October 2003 is The Vicar of Dibley: The Divine Collection, a box set that contains all three series of the Dawn French comedy along with the various Specials produced over the years, all of which has yet to receive a UK DVD release. Expect the show to be presented in Full Screen with English Stereo sound and accompanied by the following bonus materials...
  • The Real Vicars of Dibley - Documentary featuring interviews with the writers and cast of Vicar of Dibley alongside interviews with real-life female vicars
  • Two skits and a behind-the-scenes teaser from Comic Relief, never before seen in the U.S.
  • Photo gallery
  • Biographies
You will also be able to purchase the individual series from 7th October 2003 at a retail price of $24.98 each.

A few weeks later on 28th October 2003 Warner will release the complete second season for one of our hottest exports, Coupling, at a retail price of $34.98. Coupling: The Complete Second Season is spread over two-discs and presented in Anamorphic Widescreen with English Stereo sound. In terms of bonus features you can expect to find the Interviews with writer Steven Moffat and star Jack Davenport as featured on the UK Release, and better yet (though a kick in the teeth for us), the Americans will also be given Audio Commentary with the Cast, writer and producer. Oh, they get Cast Biographies as well.
