About a month or so ago I decommissioned the twitter feed for this blog, realising that it was pretty silly trying to run two seaprate twitter accounts. I may need to review that decision as it meant I missed this very intriguing tweet from BBC Worldwide:
As readers of this blog will know, I’ve been pestering the BBC for news on future releases, and speculating on the lack of movement. Only this week, news broke that the Underwater Menace DVD had been cancelled – and now this is announced.
I think it is fair to say that even those who most passionately believed that the omnirumour was true are approaching this news with caution – not so much a case of “Once bitten, twice shy” as “Scarred for life” as it were! But it does provoke thought. In an earlier post I speculated on some options for the classic range assuming that there were no further episodes to be found.
What do we reckon readers? Are the BBC preparing to fleece gullible fans (like me!) with shiny re-releases of existing DVDs? Is this the prelude to launching the entire catalogue online through iPlayer? Or maybe (just maybe) is it possible that the number 97 has the potential to drop even lower.
