    Watching the Angela Bruce Myth Makers on Prime; she’s a fascinating character, would like to see more of her on these releases, maybe a Behind the Sofa or two

    Is there still a seller that delivers to the EU?
    I live in France and Zavvi was the only seller that delivered here, but I waited for another seller because apparently Zavvi’s packages are often damaged, and they are now out of stock.
    The only option left for me as far as I know is eBay, and the prices there are outrageous.

      Hive did but have ‘temporarily’ stopped. They are currently sold out too. Why not wait a while, you never know your luck?

    I spoke with someone from Zoom on the phone today. She says she is not aware of Zoom closing down but is aware of the rumours online. She says that Zoom has issues with the suppliers of the Doctor Who dvds/blurays which has kickstarted the rumours. It could be true as they did have issues with network on air at one time and had to pull all their titles for a year while they resolved it.
