Great spot. My favourite of all time.
Heat added.
I personally prefer hard media to streaming, but this is an amazing price for this, with extras. I have the blu-ray but am very tempted to change my policy for once.
Unfortunately it's SD on iTunes and people have been complaining about the poor quality of the encoding in the comments.

By all accounts it’s pretty much SD on the Blu-ray too and has received similar complaints about the quality.
I’ve got it on iTunes and although the pictures not great it’s definitely watchable so don’t let it being compressed SD put you off.

It’s possible to watch previews of the iTunes episodes before purchase. I did this and the quality looked just fine considering the age!

I did this too and was less impressed - then again I'm used to comparable-era releases such as Doctor Who which looks much better on DVD.

I also have the complete Dad's Army on iTunes, which looks great on my iPhone, but I can't really face watching it on TV due to compression artefacts. It's a shame, because these aren't problems with the lower resolution or the way it was shot (video, which has its own quirky glitches), it's the (low-bitrate, or not careful enough) encoding.

OK - In that case it's a question if the large quantity of extras helps decide if it is worth it!
So...according to my Gmail search I bought Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Tertiary Phase on Sun, 14 Nov 2004
Does that mean I have it in my DVD collection already? Or maybe that was a gift for someone, the AudioCD? I'm sure I got it on DVD too.... Hmm....but for £3.99 I may as well buy it anyway. #buyingthesamestuffineverwatchanyway
