This looks like a good price, especially after the dissappointment of the one I posted a week or so ago. This is the absolute complete set, whereas the one I posted (which never materialised!) just had the original 2 series.

Voted hot, although unfortunately I can't justify buying it at the moment - the tumble drier just started making a strange noise last night!!!

I'm the same. I really want this but just can't justify it after xmas. :oops:

Not to be missed. Great radio series that easily eclipses the TV series.
Shan't be participating as I've already got the lot in various guises. Including those original cassettes ;-)

This has now been reduced to £36 making it an even better deal.

If you bought it at the above price, you should be able to get the difference refunded.

Was just going to post this at £36 when I found your deal nightswimmer I think I must be getting better at searching, lol.

Anyway ! This is a superb deal, Play being about £10 dearer and mot of the other big online retailers being £80 !!

Buy it even if it bankrupts you, you never know when a new highway is going to be built and next week may be a tad to late.

LOL, well done.

I wasn't sure what the etiquette was for price changes - whether I should alter the OP to reflect the price change or not (can you alter the OP for that matter?)

Yes you can nightswimmer and in this instance yes I would alter both the title and the price.
I think I'm right in saying that it's only the FS/FT forum where altering OP's is Taboo.

I'm sure a Mod will correct me if I'm wrong

ps. There's a strong request to put the Retailer and the Price in the title too so you have the ideal opportunity ;-):thumbsup:

Hope that helps !

ditto !

i have all of them too, had them for years (except the newest ones i got via bbc when they came out) kids love them i am going to buy as these are a set whilst mine are old box set and new double cd's worth it just as spares! Besides they are only 6 altarian dollars by todays exchange rate, as long as altarian dollars stay stable after their recent resumption on the galactic economy stock markets.

Not nearly so freaky as downing a few pan galatic gargle blasters whilst trying to convince Marvin that life is slightly better now that Google have worked out the answer.

Long may it remain at 42, a fitting tribute to a magnificent author. :thumbsup:

The same with me. After saying I wouldn't, I did, and they are here! It's a great little boxed set. :thumbsup:
