Excellent drama series (by ITV!) starring Damian Lewis and Rupert Graves. 4 disc (complete). This is the modern (2003) version.
Play.com have this for £11.99, HMV £12.49. Other stores (in the hut group) have a five disc set for £10.85ish plus, but in the same box. There is no indication that you get anything more on the five disc set than in the four disc set, and could well be a typo across all their brands. It says 4 disc on the box, but the hut group have cut the top of the box off in their image.
