The cult classic TV series Thriller has finally arrived on DVD.  Yes that’s right, for the first time all 43 self contained episodes are presented on 18 DVDs in an impressive cube complete with a truckload of extras.

For those too young to remember, Thriller was a spine tingling British weekly series which ran from 1973 to 1976. It boasted guest stars such as Barbara Feldon, Diana Dors, Carol Lynley and Robert Powell to name a few.This must-see TV program unleashed an hour of murder, horror, mystery, evil and terror and often all in one episode. There were a plethora of plot twists to keep you guessing until the very end.

I have to say one of my favourite things about revisiting this series is the welcome trip down memory lane to the 1970s both in the sets and fashions as worn by the characters. Never have I seen so much brown, whether it be wood veneer or slack suits and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

This special collectors edition of THRILLER sees every episode broken up into three parts and has brand new introductions from the series writer and creator Brain Clemons followed by that unmistakable haunting opening theme.

Episodes to watch out for include Lady Killer, Murder in Mind, Someone at the Top of the Stairs and If it’s a Man Hang Up which includes an alternate extended version.

Keep an eye out for a very young Helen Mirren.

With a runtime of 2932 minutes, it is certainly worth your time.

Don’t miss out because they don’t make ‘em like they used to.
