Considering we've not heard much about any more T-Bag DVD releases and the fact Amazon have stopped taking pre-orders for the boxset how about we all pre-order series 4 & 5 which are currently still listed as available for pre-order at HMV.
Don't get too excited Revelation Films are not likely to release these individual DVDs but if HMV get a lot of pre-orders they may contact Revelation Films which might prompt them to consider the boxset again.
Anyway, it's worth a try! I've pre-ordered both these, so who's with me?
Sorry if this is a dumb question but if we preorder them, we won't actually be charged any money unless/until the DVDs actually do get released, will we?
I don't have the first 3 series on DVD any more because I was of course planning on getting the boxset of all the series, so I sold the first 3! I'll have to buy them again if the boxset never sees the light of day.
Series 4 & 5 have now been removed from the HMV.com website and on the 4th July I got an e-mail about my pre-order as follows:
This was from order number xxxxxxxx
We're really sorry, but the suppliers have now informed us that this item has now been discontinued, and they are not planning to manufacture any further copies.
We are going to try to see if we can get the item from an alternate source for you for a further 30 days. If we aren't able to get any more stock, then we will send you another email to let you know that your order has been cancelled. If we are successful we will let you know when the item is on its way to you.
Please note that you won't be charged for the item until we dispatch it.
Remember that if you don't want to wait, or manage to get the item elsewhere, you can always cancel your order via the My Account section.
It's disappointing news but we knew that Revelation Films weren't going to release series 4 & 5 individually.
Why has it happened now considering HMV have had these series on their website for pre-order since series two was announced for release? It could be just a coincidence or I think HMV have had a number of orders and they've checked with Revelation Films about the release date. If so at least Revelation Films know there is a potential market out there willing to buy T-Bag DVDs, it might prompt them about the boxset. Everyone cross (or click) your fingers!
