What's different on the DVDs?


I'm a fan of your Supernatural picspams (I'm glad you're doing them again!), but I've also been enjoying the Sherlock episodes. But I've only seen them on Masterpiece Theater. If you don't mind my asking, what's different on the DVDs? (Now I'm curious!)

Re: What's different on the DVDs?

Hello, and thank you! Glad you're enjoying the picspams! Life events kept me sadly busy for a long while, but I'm getting back to them now as I can.

The Masterpiece Mystery time slot is shorter than the length of the original episodes, so several scenes are cut out or shortened in each episode to make it fit, approximately eight minutes per episode. Sometimes they're pretty big consecutive bits but even the little cuts disrupt the original flow of the episodes and sometimes the scenes left out alter the apparent significance of later scenes. I don't have a link for a list of all the cuts handy and am on my way to work in a few minutes, but there are lists others have compiled of what's missing online if you get a chance to poke around.

The episodes are the original uncut BBC-aired episodes on the DVDs and I very highly recommend watching it on DVD, both Series one and two. If you can't afford to buy it, check the DVD section at your local library or phone around video stores to see if anyone's got it for rent.

Thanks so much! Now I'll have to get my mitts on those DVDs... ;-)
