    btw: based on the pricing upon release of classic DW DVD's I wouldn't count on series 1 being reasonably priced when it hits the shelves in the US.

    Tho some of the classic ones have dropped way down in price, things like Genesis of the Daleks (6/6/06) is still quite high.

    I appreciate the tip - I'll try it. What software are you using to create the DVD?

    OT: Have you picked up Hustle yet? I've watched the first season and I think it's great!

    Couldn't agree more about Hustle... pleasant surprise

    Life on Mars has been pretty good as well (thank you BT)

    The original episodes are 45 minutes long, so I'd say little if anything...

    I'll look into Hustle.

    I used TMPEGenc Express to convert the AVI to a DVD compatible MPEG2 (or Mediachances MPEG convertor when the audio track was incompatible), then Sonic's MyDVD (came with the DVD Burner) to make it a DVD Video.

    P.S. Life On Mars' DCI Gene Hunt's (Phillip Glennister) brother (Robert Glennister) plays Hustle's Ash Morgan , in case you didn't know.

    This is the BBC's thing. They make all shows 45-50 minutes if they think it'll sell overseas. That leaves time for commercials (although in SciFi it feels like 20 mins of show and 40 mins of ads and promos!). I think a standard hour-long drama in the US is 46 minutes.

    Thanks - I'll give it a try. I'm on the road this week (as usual), so it'll be the weekend before I get round to it.

    ...and yes, I knew about the Glenister brothers (I'm a Brit :) )

    Me too (born London, moved to Scarborough via Milton Keynes before emigrating), but I'd never heard of the Glenisters until Life On Mars.
    I've timed many US shows (after capture & removal of commercials) at 42 minutes.

    This show should be a winner, It was corny back in the 70's doubt if improved much.
    there is 20 min of commercials in a hour show.

    USA Pricing announced.

    http://c.warnerbros.1nc025.com/email_domains/was/1316/images/WHO.pdf

    MSRP: $99.98

    35% off, and the cheaper online dealers will have it in the $65-$70 range.

    Wow, they are are proud of those 13 episodes for that kind of money. Almost makes the CA or UK version worth ordering now ya know?

    Except they're not really any cheaper, street-price-wise.

    Yeah, these are HBO prices. But since it's a show with a very intense cult following, they're probably right that they can get it.

    Ah! I see.

    I will probably wait for the American edition to show up at the used shops for under $50 (which is my strategy for the similarly-overpriced HBO series I get)...
