Is there a boxset for the COMPLETE series on BD in the UK? Also has the spin-off film The Immortal (2019), which is both a prequel and a sequel to the events after the third season, been released in the UK at all?

Ideally said boxset to include the spin-off film similar to the HMV exclusive Briefcase set of The Thick of It which contained the spin-off film In The Loop, albeit on DVD ONLY.

No complete box set announced as of yet. Yes, The Immortal has been released in the UK by Dazzler Media:


There's also an Italian version, with a 25-minute behind-the-scenes featurette on it - but the featurette isn't English-friendly:


Note that the Italian release of the film is presented at 24fps, but the behind-the-scenes shows that (at least some of) it was filmed at 25fps.

I also would not watch The Immortal until after the fourth season, as I think there is a plot point in the film that only makes sense after the S4 finale. (If I'm remembering right.)

The discs start MPEG 4 AVC and the menus are AVC too but as soon as you go into the episodes it changes to MPEG2.

I bought the Italian import for Immortale as it's 1080P rather than the 1080i of the UK edition

Gomorra + The Immortal > The Godfather 1 + 2 + 3

Jesus, the curse of Arrow TV strikes again. Years ago, they had all kinds of issues with encodes, but in recent years, they had cleared up. I have to assume Arrow farms these TV releases out to some outfit that simply doesn't give a damn, because they never have these kinds of issues with films anymore.

I guess I'll be ordering the Italian edition, too.

Still not allowing UK purchases for it though - hopefully that will change by or on release date!

Finally got a version of BDInfo working on my laptop, so better late than never here's a scan of the first four episodes from the first disc for anyone interested:
