  1. Are ther no non-vision commentaries filling the gaps that the in-vision ones don't fill? I am massively excited by the extras on this box set and I do appreciate the wealth of brilliant stuff there is, but I will definitely be disappointed if there aren't commentaries in-vison or not on every episode.

  2. I'm not generally a fan of in-vision commentaries but the picture with Beth Willis wearing the rather short dress may change my opinion on this matter…

  3. It's a shame how the commentaries have steadily disappeared from the DVDs & website. In previous series we ended up with 2 for every episode, now we're getting them on under half the series!

    I suppose budgets would be the usual excuse — though on the special box set it was a bit pathetic, as website commentaries existed for the 3 episodes they didn't bother to include tracks for. Personally, I'd rather they took the money spent on sticking a camera in the room for 6 commentaries and spent it on a few more regular audio ones.
