I Didn't Know You Cared

Classic BBC sitcom I Didn't Know You Cared arrives as a fantastic DVD Box Set featuring all four series courtesy of Second Sight.

Based on Peter Tinniswood's renowned books comes one of television's greatest comedy families, The Brandons, in this hilarious 1970s series. There's miserable pessimist Uncle Mort (Robin Bailey - Charters & Caldicott), his sharp-tongued sister Annie played by the inimitable Liz Smith (The Royle Family), who is forever rowing with her husband Les (John Comer - Last Of The Summer Wine), there's their laid-back son Carter and his not so laid-back fiancee Pat and finally old Uncle Staveley who carries his friend's ashes around his neck in a box and only enters the constant bickering with his cry of 'I 'eard that! Pardon'.

This brilliant slice of great British comedy arrives as a bumper four-disc DVD box set on 28 November 2016.

Hooten and the Lady

Get ready for a brand new rip-roaring adventure Hooten and the Lady, which follows the hilarious escapades of a hugely charismatic American treasure hunter and his fantastically feisty partner in crime as they travel the world in search for hidden treasures. This rope-swinging romp comes to DVD courtesy of RLJ Entertainment's Acorn Label, following its run on Sky1.

In the darkest Amazon, Lady Alexandra Lindo-Parker (Ophelia Lovibond - W1A, Mr Popper's Penguins) - on an expedition for the British Museum to find the remains of a lost Edwardian explorer - runs into Hooten (Michael Landes - Final Destination 2, Love Soup), a rough and ready, uncompromising American explorer with a tragic past and occasional charm. They immediately and utterly fail to get on, but dangerous circumstances keep them together as they fall off mountains and out of helicopters and they find and lose a legendary city of gold.

As the pair battle through snake-filled jungles, we learn of Hooten's mysterious past and Alex's impending nuptials to vet Edward (Jonathan Bailey - Broadchurch, W1A), and an unlikely bond is formed. Now a unit, and with the brilliant and eccentric support of Ella (Jessica Hynes - Spaced, W1A) and Clive (Shaun Parkes - Line of Duty, The Mummy Returns) at the Museum - they travel the world from the Vatican to The Himalayas, the Amazon to Egypt, in their quest to save the world's lost treasures.

This adrenaline fuelled action-packed, eight-part drama lands on DVD on 28 November 2016.

SPIKE MILLIGAN'S Q VOLUME 1: SERIES 1-3

Spike Milligan's Q was one of the most surreal sketch shows ever made and a huge influence on Monty Python's Flying Circus, which launched six months after Q first aired in 1969. Now this highly sought-after BAFTA-nominated series gets its first ever home entertainment release courtesy of Simply Media, with Q Volume 1: Series 1-3 released on DVD on 21 November 2016.

Considered one of the best examples of the British Comedy Award winner's eccentricity and 'stream-of-consciousness' humour, Spike Milligan's sketches in Q make outrageous leaps from one subject matter or location to another, stopping with no apparent conclusion, and not shying away from controversial matters. Filled with invention and taking huge risks, Q provides the perfect showcase for Milligan's surreal wit.
