Insane special features

Crown Court



Just got through my review copy of The Sandbaggers, series three. What do you reckon the best special feature would be, bearing in mind it’s a classic early 80s British spy show, starring Roy Marsden?

Some sort of interview with Roy Marsden?

A director’s commentary, perhaps?

The scripts as a DVD ROM?

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

The actual special feature is a three-part story from Crown Court that features Roy Marsden.

Much as I loved – and it turns out love – Crown Court, the painstakingly, laboriously authentic dramatisation of typical English Crown Court trials of the 70s and 80s (this week, for three episodes, a woman accused of shoplifting), I’m not sure it’s quite right for the DVDs. Do you?
