Coming soon: The Sweeney - The Complete First Series on Blu-ray


The remake movie might be coming in September, but for fans of the show, the big event that month is the release of The Sweeney - The Complete First Series on Blu-ray via Network DVD.

Yes, after the original pilot got the Blu-ray treatment in 2011, it was only a matter of time before the series went high-definition too. On the downside, it doesn't come as a single boxset, Network choosing to release it series by series.

The first instalment comes on 10th September 2012, with Network promising a three-disc set (650 minutes) with a 'previously unseen level of quality', thanks to a brand new high definition transfer and restoration. It will also come with a brand-new commemorative booklet by Archive TV historian Andrew Pixley and a Dolby 5.1 track along with original as-broadcast Mono and music-only tracks.

There's also an interview with creator Ian Kennedy-Martin, commentaries with Dennis Waterman, Garfield Morgan, producer Ted Childs, writers Trevor Preston and Troy Kennedy-Martin, directors Tom Clegg and David Wickes and editor Chris Burt, plus episode introductions by guest stars Warren Mitchell, Wanda Ventham, Prunella Gee, John Forgeham, Billy Murray, Tony Selby and Dudley Sutton.

Everything a fan could want. Check out the first clip released for the Blu-ray version below and if you want to pre-order, £35 is the price.
