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.
