Tim Vine - new Tim Timinee DVD now availableIf one-line puns machine-gunned at you are your thing, then time to make an appointment to watch as award-winning British comedian Tim Vine, in a new show where he emerges from a chimney to take the roof off (it says here…). If Dick van Dyke was a stand-up, and from this side of the Atlantic, well, it’s nothing like that at all!  “Tim Timinee Tim Timinee Tim Tim to You” is the latest mix-and-mirth from a man who breaks up the unyielding procession of off-the-wall corner-turning rat-a-tat spiel with silly songs, and one prop after another with a slick and simple pay-off.

This was a sell-out show which took Tim around the country and beyond. Take a deep breath everyone, because there’s a lot to get through. Stand by for a large number of stupid jokes, (and platypuses on poles, plus an interloper). Packed with a range of extras, this is the full-on exposure of the concept, and a breathless experience – if you don’t like one particular joke, another will be along before you have chance to blink, let alone frown.

Spike Milligan - episode of Q series finally come to DVD completeThere’s a reason that Spike Milligan’s TV shows from the late 1960s onwards have faded away from memory. On one level it can be put down to a lack of repeats, but the truth is based on their effective ‘blacklisting’, all down to one social factor which has scared people into silence. Political correctness. Seeing the shows Q5, Q6 and Q7 finally getting a DVD release is symptomatic of the fightback going on across the world at the moment. People are sick to death of being told what views they cannot hold, what language they can and cannot use, and instead being expected to go along with social restrictions which make it nigh-on illegal to have targets for humour.

Milligan adopts equal opportunities on many such targets for his off-the-wall stream-of-consciousness humour. Every religion, race, and political allegiance is verbally machine-gunned. The stupidity of belief systems and cultural actions are exposed to the spotlights which reveal the nature of divide-and-rule that such codes of conduct allow to grow. But the Social Justice Warriors will just focus in on the use of terms which, in this day and age, have been abolished. In effect, in the 21st Century the Q series has suddenly become the tool of revolution. And so it is that this new release from Simply Media allows us to take a snapshot of how sensibilities have changed from those of 1969, 1975 and 1978 respectively.

The day has finally arrived, and those who have pre-ordered UFO, the first live-action television series from the creators of Thunderbirds, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, are beginning to find the first UK Blu-ray release of the entire run of episodes popping through their letterboxes. The popularity of the show has even caught out Network Distributing as the first print run has sold out, and more are being rushed through to production as we speak. Network’s attention to detail has certainly been a key reason for this – a landmark series in so many ways, the restoration work on UFO is absolutely awe-inspiring, and new for this UK release. Not a film scratch in sight, not a blemish to make you twitch. In these days of Netflix, you can guarantee those who have purchased will be seduced into ‘binge viewing’ like never before.

UFO arrives on UK Blu-ray - and demand is huge

The sensibilities of the series rightly receives a ‘12’ certificate from the BBFC. At the time of first broadcast back in 1970, the ITV network was bemused that the puppet makers had come up with such an adult series. Watching the show now definitely benefits from original production order (for the majority of the run), as we see the characters and situations progress and evolve. Some faces might not stay with us for long, but it makes the show more credible for doing so. What we have here is pure television gold, serious in aspect but bright and colourful in terms of the world view we witness. And all this with the option of listening with a brand new and house-quaking 5.1 surround sound audio track!

Maid Marian and her Merry Men - Complete Series 1-4 out as a Limited Edition DVD setRe-released as a limited edition DVD box-set (just 3,000 copies), Maid Marian and Her Merry Men is a brilliantly funny, BAFTA-winning re-imagining of the Robin Hood story from Tony Robinson, of Blackadder and Time Team fame. In this version, Maid Marian is the brains behind the band of outlaws who rob from the rich and giving to the poor; Robin by contrast is a dim-witted and rather cowardly tailor with terrible archery skills. AND YOU COULD HAVE WON A COPY OF THE LIMITED EDITION SEASON 1-4 BOX SET IN OUR PRIZE COMPETITION.

Marian is played with gleeful bravado by Kate Lonergan (The Hello Girls, The Bill), with Adam Morris (Genie in the House, Backup) as the bumbling Robin. Danny John-Jules (Red Dwarf, Death in Paradise) is Barrington and he also lends his vocal talents on many of the songs that open the episodes. The final two members of the crew are Rabies (Howard Lew Lewis – Brush Strokes, Chelmsford 123) and Little Ron (Mike Edmonds – “Time Bandits”, Ewok Logray in “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi”).

Knight Rider - The Complete Collection now available on Blu-rayTV supremo Glen A Larson followed up hits such as the original Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century with one of his most fondly-remembered smashes: Knight Rider. On the surface, this tale of a man and his car defending the innocent and vulnerable against evil tycoons and corrupt officials might sound a little corny, but not when your star is David Hasselhoff and this is certainly no ordinary car!

Hasselhoff (Baywatch, “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!”) plays Michael Knight, an ex-cop rescued from near-death and given a new identity under the auspices of a private foundation. His somewhat unorthodox partner is KITT (voiced by William Daniels), aka the Knight Industries Two Thousand, a souped-up Pontiac Firebird Trans Am sporting self-aware and very sarcastic AI, a nearly indestructible shell and a large array of gadgets to help get Michael out of almost any scrape.

Kes - out now on Blu-rayDavid Bradley (“Hummingbird”, “All Quiet on the Western Front”) stars as Billy Casper, a scruffy young teenager living in a broken, working-class home, and who struggles at school thanks to apathy for education and widespread bullying. Billy finds his calling, however, when he catches sight of some fledgling kestrels and decides to catch one and train it. Having studied falconry, the lad slowly and patiently builds a rapport with his wonderful bird of prey.

Directed by Ken Loach (“The Wind That Shakes the Barley”, “Sweet Sixteen”), the film is shot in a very realistic, natural style that often feels more like a fly-on-the-wall documentary than a work of fiction. The story is based on a novel by Barry Hines (“Threads”, “Looks and Smiles”), and the production won two acting BAFTAs for Bradley and Colin Welland, who plays a teacher sympathetic to Billy’s plight.

Twilight's Last Gleaming - out now in the UK as a dual format Blu-ray and DVD releaseBurt Lancaster and Richard Widmark star in this post-Vietnam political thriller from 1977, out now on home media for the first time in the UK in a Dual Format Blu-ray and DVD edition from Eureka Entertainment. Considered a peak in director Robert Aldrich’s catalogue of work, “Twilight’s Last Gleaming” is a race-against-time doomsday scenario which will have annoyed the establishment in seeing Vietnam as a huge mistake by the USA, and was conceived as such right from the start of hostilities. Powerful, challenging, and enlightening stuff indeed.

Lancaster is a former Air Force general, Lawrence Dell, who with a quartet of accomplices skips jail and seizes control of Silo Three, which contains a stockpile of nine ICBM nuclear missiles. While the others are in it for the money, Dell wants to force President David Stevens (Charles Durning) to tell the truth about the Vietnam War. As negotiations get ever-more complex and desperate, General MacKenzie (Widmark) tries to guide an elite fighting team into the bunker to disable Dell and his mercenary hoods.

National Treasure - out now on DVDRobbie Coltrane and Julie Walters star in this drama about a famous comedic actor falling from grace. Paul Finchley (Coltrane – Hagrid in the “Harry Potter” movies, Cracker) is one half of a long-standing and very successful double act. Life is good and everyone adores him, but then the police notify him of some historical sexual assault charges that have been made against him, and his apparently perfect world starts to implode.

Recently broadcast on Channel 4, the mini-series was crafted by two BAFTA-winners - writer Jack Thorne (various This is England series, The Fades), and director Marc Munden (“The Mark of Cain”, Utopia). The series also features Tim McInnery (Black Adder, “Notting Hill”) as Karl, the other half of the comedy duo, and Andrea Riseborough (“Made in Dagenham”) as the Finchley’s mentally unstable daughter.

Stigmata - out now on dual-format Blu-ray and DVDPatricia Arquette (“True Romance”, Medium) stars as Frankie Paige, a young and carefree hairdresser whose life is turned upside down by the spontaneous infliction of a series of horrific wounds. These injuries, the stigmata, echo those suffered by Jesus Christ during his crucifixion. Frankie cannot understand why she is suffering, but religious investigator Father Andrew Kiernan (Gabriel Byrne – “The Usual Suspects”, Vikings) may have the answers.

A swift resolution is critical because Frankie’s mental as well as physical condition worsens with each new attack, and she starts behaving like she is not herself. Part supernatural horror, part conspiracy thriller, the film also stars Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones, “Brazil”) as a powerful Catholic Cardinal and Nia Long (“Big Momma’s House”, The Divide) as Frankie’s devoted best friend. Rupert Wainright (“The Fog” remake) directs.
