Tales of the Unexpected 19-DVD box set

Looking to fill 2,800 minutes of empty time in your life? You can do it with the soon-to-be-released Tales of the Unexpected DVD box set.

A total of 19 discs, covering every episode of the 70s TV show, with most episodes introduced by writer Roald Dahl. And of course featuring that ‘unexpected’ twist at the end – although most of these seem to be so obvious, they might as well feature a caption during the first 10 minutes. Packed with stars too – including the likes of Derek Jacobi, Joan Collins, Sir John Gielgud, Ian Holm, Brian Blessed, Zoe Wanamaker, Richard Briers, Nigel Havers and Sir John Mills.

Don’t expect a review – our life is a bit too full to be bothered to be honest. But if you have some spare time (or a fortnight’s holiday), you can pick the box up for £99.99 (or £75 from Amazon) from 6th October 2008.
