The BBC Online Shop
All fans of Judge John Deed should be aware the BBC have recently reduced their price and the exact same product is currently available from the official BBC Online Shop for the bargain price of only £7.99 + £2.99 P&P = £10.98. Wow!
As you can see, considerable savings can be made by cutting out the middle man... Furthermore, as you are purchasing directly from the supplier [in this case the BBC] there is no danger of ending up with a pirate copy or a used item of dubious quality!
The BBC Online Shop is located at; http://www.bbcshop.com/ and the Judge John Deed Series 1 and Pilot Boxed Set can be found at http://www.bbcshop.com/Drama+Arts/Judge-John-Deed-Series-1+The-Pilot-DVD/invt/bbcdvd1973.
Updates10th May 2008
Fear Not! For I have searched high and low in an attempt to save you money and am happy to inform you it can now be purchased from the HMV online shop [at http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=280;-1;-1;-1&sku=493057] for only £8.99 including standard delivery. So, if you don't mind waiting about a week for it to arrive it is actually cheaper that the previous offer.
Well Done Nipper!
I hope this has been of help and saves someone a little bit of time and money.
