Spiral (aka Engrenages) on DVD in October

Ah. A <em>good</em> French TV programme!

I’m indebted to Scott at Love and Garbage for pointing out that Engrenages (aka Spiral aka ‘The good French TV show’) is coming out on DVD in October. Which is just marvellous.

Better news still is that the second series starts on Sunday in France, and should be coming to BBC4 later this year after a repeat of the first series; there’s also an unconfirmed rumour that series three is already being worked on. Give it a try: it’s worth it, I reckon.
