In the build up to the first series of Doctor Who fans of the series tuned in to the Russell T Davies drama ‘Mine All Mine’.
Sadly the show did less well in the ratings than anyone might have hoped and ITV, never an organisation to allow quality productions to get in the way of cheap celebrity-filled nonsense, cut the final two episodes into a single 90 minute showing.
The result was, to be frank, a bit of a mess with Russell’s witty dialogue and characters butchered to fill an odd slot and trailed plot elements simply vanishing.
So apart from the Russell T Davies/Doctor Who connection, why are we spouting off about this?
Well, thanks to those lovely people at Cinema Club fans of the show will soon be able to own a copy on DVD although it’s currently unlcear if the release will be the full 6 x 60 minute (including adverts) version seen overseas or the 4 X 60 and 1 x 90 minute ITV version.
