‘Rev’ DVD release date postponed

Natch! I have had the DVD of the excellent first series of ‘Rev‘ on order with Amazon for the last couple of weeks, with the intention of using it for teaching at Trinity. Today, I received the following email from Amazon:


Unfortunately, the release date for the item(s) listed below was changed by the supplier, and we need to provide you with a new estimated delivery date based on the new release date:

Tom Hollander, Olivia Colman “Rev [DVD]”
Estimated arrival date: April 21 2011 – April 27 2011

One of Amazon’s aims is to provide a convenient and efficient service; in this case, we have fallen short. Please accept our sincere apologies.

A quick look at the BBC Shop and it appears that their delivery date has also been set back to April. So what’s going on? It was originally scheduled for release at the end of October.  I’ve emailed the BBC Shop to ask for a reason and if I get an answer (a rare thing in contemporary retailing), I will post it here.


The new comedy series from the BBC. More real than Dibley: just about everything which took place in Episode 1 has happened in related from in my experience. Love it. Love it. Love it.

They’ll never make him a bishop now …

Sir Cliff Richard explained his rather liberal views on same-sex relationship in the Times last week. I can hear the sound of a thousand Evangelical jaws dropping. I think he’s being rather brave – so maybe I’ll forgive him for recording Millennium Prayer. Thanks to Maggi for pointing me to this.


News out on Gizmodo today is that in the next Bond film, Quantum of Solace, 007 will be using a Sony Ericsson C902. What? Not an iPhone 3G?

Not a chance. Can you really see Daniel Craig turning his attentions away from some stylish, attractive and, no doubt, curvatious accomplice to fiddle around surfing the net or reading his gmail on an iPhone?

I don’t think so.

James Bond uses a phone to call people. And, if the leaks are to be believed, to kill them. But I just can’t seem him squinting at it to look at Facebook. Can you?
