    Thanks to a flash sale at Network I've added a few more complete series to my collection:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I'm fairly sure they're all new to me (with the possible exception of Law And Disorder).

    As it's technically a mini-series, I'll omit The Norman Conquests when I update my list on Page 1.

    Until a couple of days ago I hadn't even heard of The Wackers. And I'm still getting my head round the idea of Cheggers and Alison Steadman existing in the same universe. As siblings. And with the bingo mad Mam from One Summer and that bloke from Porridge as their parents*.




    *And a quick look online reveals that the actors playing the parents were real life spouses. This gets more and more interesting.

    I think there are only two versions:
    The one I've bought and this one from 2012 (which costs almost £20 more!)
    [​IMG]

    The Dutch version (13 discs) doesn't have Extra Time

    I have this box set that you showed, it is a pity that my DVDs do not have the extra time, but I'm curious about the bonus material, I also looked at the different times of the box sets, there is a total difference of 784 minutes that's pretty much. it's a pity that I did not buy the other box, I believe mine was at sale for 12.50 euro's at Blokker. ;)

    Yes. They have only killed off fourteen characters within the last year.


    Two electrocutions, two drownings, a couple of shootings. Strangling and bludgeoning. A nephew killing his uncle. A mother killing her daughter, a father shooting his son. Schoolgirl serial killer Nico Blake returned from her fiery Halloween death and weeks later got killed off again by her mother


    Gillian Taylforth used to be on Hollyoaks too. When her EastEnders character was dead/in South Africa, she came to Hollyoaks. When she returned to EastEnders, her Hollyoaks character was said to be in South Africa.

    Sometimes characters on Hollyoaks make miraculous returns from the dead, even when their bodies have been positively identified as dead by people who knew them. There are also instances of people who have been framed for killing people, who aren’t actually dead. That one usually unravels when the corpse turns up alive and well.

    I've updated my list to include a few new additions. The first is a series where I've seen quite a number of episodes but not the entire series. The second is an old favourite. The third is uncharted territory, but recommended by @James from London so money well spent.

    Well, while Gary Lucy is on a nine-month theatre tour, his character was last month temporarily sent to prison after committing GBH on someone who he was tricked into thinking had sexually abusing his son. Tricked by the actual abuser. But he’ll be safer in prison. Although some characters have been murdered there. Come to think, the murderers who haven’t got killed or who are on the run or are undetected or who the police have let go for lack of evidence or who the police haven’t bothered to arrest or they have been released on technicalities are in prison too. But only two murders have happened in the three weeks since his imprisonment. A shooting last Friday. And a poisoning tonight, two episodes later. Actor Michael Dixon has now played two separate murder victims in the last few years.

    I found The Professionals and Tales of the Unexpected last week at the back of a cupboard. It was right after I was watching Stephanie Beacham in Public Eye, which was broadcast on tv again yesterday.

    I found The Addams Family on DVD recently.

    Well, in the four weeks since his imprisonment, two murders, another person dying from being crushed by a tree, one botched murder attempt, three near drownings in the Pond (home to incriminating mobile phones, wallets, murder weapons, tossed away drugs and occasional dead bodies), one resuscitation from the brink of death and two people almost impaled by the “Welcome to Hollyoaks” sign when it pierced through their car roof. And loveable but emotionally complicated villainous lawyer James Nightingale finding out that the person he called a “desperate vacuous rent boy” is in fact the son that he never knew that he had, having fathered him when his abusive murderer father (who recently recovered from the locked-in syndrome he had from when his daughter defenestrated him from the same window his second son had died from, moments after catching his fiancée having sex with his dad) forced him to sleep with a prostitute on his 16th birthday in an attempt to turn him straight. With Rick Astley, Ken Bruce, Carol Kirkwood, Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid guesting as themselves. Gary Lucy has been back filming some scenes, in between his tour.
