Following the wrap-up of Battlestar Galactica
, Jamie Bamber ("Lee Adama") moved over to play "DS Matt Devlin" on Law & Order: UK
, which Dick Wolf produces for the British ITV network. His "law" was joined by the "order" of Freema Agyeman ("Martha Jones" on Doctor Who
) as "Junior Crown Prosecutor Alesha Phillips." Beside the U.K., the program has also been broadcast in several other countries as well, such as Canada. Although there has been talk of it airing these episodes the USA, it hasn't made it to the airwaves over here yet.
Starting tomorrow March 23rd
, however, Target is making Law & Order: UK - Season 1
available exclusively at their chain of stores on DVD! This can be seen on the sixth page of the current weekly ad circular for the retailer, which shows that it's on sale this week for $26.99 (at least at the store near me; cost may vary by location). The list price given is $39.98 SRP. No specs are available, but below is the description found at Target's website that lists the extensive bonus material for this title (note that for the sake of clarity, we've corrected a few obvious typos in Target's description). Below that is a picture of the front of the box. Right now we honestly don't know if this title will ever be available elsewhere in the USA besides at Target. Our thanks to every one of the readers - there were a number of you - who e-mailed us to make sure we were aware of this!
I've just come back from my local Target this morning, and picked up one of the (only!) two copies they had on-shelf there of this title. It turns out that this is a 3-DVD set with 13 episodes, running 622 minutes. Video is anamorphic widescreen, audio is English Dolby Digital 2.0, and English subtitles. I hope that additional info helps!
