He may not arrive in the form of a strangely-shaped unordered parcel, as a workman with the intellect of an orang-utan, or even as Meldrew-fixated, ex-neighbor Patrick, but he better be prepared to listen - Victor might have a few complaints to make...- The Executioner's Song.- Tales of Terror.- The Futility Of The Fly.- Threatening Weather.- The Dawn Of Man.- Things Aren't Simple Anymore.Disc Twelve - The 1996 and 1997 Christmas Specials:In these two feature length episodes Victor reaches new heights of frustration, despair and exasperation - dragging Margaret and anyone else in the vicinity into the maelstrom with him. Featuring many viewers' favourite scenes - including the Meldrew 'Surgical Support Recycling Centre' and the indecent exposure identity parade - these are priceless episodes from a magnificent series.- Starbound.- Endgame.

I dont believe it.

great deal...

Good price.

I got this instore at W.H.Smiths a few weeks back for £32. Heat added.

Anyone know if this is in-store, too? I don't see why not, as they deliver to stores if desired.

Voucher not valid until Monday 24 March (for one week only)

I wouldn't risk waiting for the voucher to become valid, they might run out of stock or the price might increase or at the very least home delivery might become chargable possibly wiping out all of the discount benefits.:) with quidco this works out to £25.75 delivered free a real bargain.

What voucher?

EDIT: Ah, found it now. 10% off.

I am destined to be Victor Meldrew in my later life

"I DO NOT Belieeeeeve it"

"What in the name of bloody hell?"

Now out of stock, that'll teach me for holding it in the basket and not paying for it :oops:

W H Smith are good at letting you order items if they are out of stock, they email you when item is back in stock, might be worth a try (if the option is there!), they have just emailed me to say a CD I wanted is being delivered to my nearest store, a couple of weeks after it was out of stock on their website.

Back in stock now and ordered, super HOT deal!

Yes, in stock but gone up to £30. I assume this is so that people using the 10% voucher still have to pay the price that existed BEFORE the voucher became valid. I.e. 'Smiths can't hack you getting another 10% off an already good price. Cheeky b*stards if you ask me, which you didn't. Retailers suck.

Bought this for £27.99 - great price! Heat and rep added.

Arrived today - really chuffed.

Next best i've ever seen was £34 so cheers for post.:)

They took my payment for the £27.99 and then confirmed the order. I then had another email to say it was out of stock and would be shipped as soon as it comes back into stock. A really bizarre set up if you ask me.

Up to £29.99 now, but still the best price. The voucher, from Monday, would take it down to £26.99, and with Quidco on top of that, you're looking at £24.83. :thumbsup:
