United Kingdom Frankie Drake Mysteries & Shakespeare & Hathaway (Spirit Entertainment)

I wasn't sure whether to start a general discussion thread for UK label Spirit Entertainment, or start a separate thread for two of their Blu-ray releases, Frankie Drake Mysteries and Shakespeare and Hathaway: Private Investigators.

Have got the first season release of Frankie Drake Mysteries (it had bonus features/extras), but have yet to get the second season (it has no bonus features/extras, based on DVD Compare's listing for Spirit Entertainment's release). If the second season has had a DVD or/and Blu-ray release in the States or/and Canada, did it have any bonus features/extras included?

Since the second season of Frankie Drake Mysteries and both the first and second series/seasons of Shakespeare and Hathaway: Private Investigators have been released on Blu-ray, their prices on Amazon UK don't seem to have budged much. I haven't seen the prices go below £19.99.

Is like Father Brown another TV title they release under the Dazzler Media label. They all tend to stick in price and aren't discounted. Would argue though £20 is probably a fair price for a niche BD of a TV show.

If you want cheaper the iTunes HD copies do get discounted to £5 or £10 per season depending how old the season is.

I wasn't really saying the prices of the sets are expensive. Just commenting that the prices haven't gone below £19.99 on Amazon UK for example. Not interested in streaming and downloading compared to physical media, unless it's really necessary to use the streaming and downloading option.

I would like to know if there are no extras/bonus features on a physical media release in another country. I do want to get these UK sets, with a third series/season of both shows on the way.

Arenít these U.K. BD exclusives so thereís nothing to compare against.
I would have thought though if they make it to German TV expect a BD there eventually.

I don't believe they are UK Blu-ray exclusives. The comparison I was asking about before applied to both DVD and Blu-ray releases of both series.

Which other country has them ?
Thereís nothing on the database here, so please report if you know of other releases internationally.

It's not so much a transfer comparison I'm asking about, but a bonus features/extras comparison. I've kept DVD releases of a TV series when they've had extras which weren't on the Blu-ray release. That was what I wanted to know, if there has been a DVD and Blu-ray release in the States and Canada. I would say it's more likely there has only been a DVD release in the States and Canada of Frankie Drake Mysteries (I don't know if Shakespeare & Hathaway has been shown on TV in the States and Canada).

Murdoch Mysteries gets DVD-only releases in the UK, but it's had Blu-ray releases in the States (after doing some checking, it seems the Blu-ray bundle sets are better value than the separate season sets).

The third season of Frankie Drake Mysteries should start on Alibi in the UK early in the New Year.
