United Kingdom Ultraviolet - 90s Vampire TV Series (UK)

I recently enjoyed this short series on UK DVD.

No sign of it on Blu-ray, at least not that I can find.

Has anybloody else seen it? The DVD has a minor ratio issue on my Panasonic plasma. Would be nice to get a nice 16:9 Blu-ray.

One of my favourites, and the beginning of my obsession with Idris Elba. From the looks of the database, it hasn't been released anywhere.

Stunning television. One of my favourite British shows of all time and one of me favourite vampire mythologies too. Can't imagine there will ever be a blu ray [emoji852]️

You'd think with Idris Elbar's star rising so high of late then if it were ever to make the jump to HD it would likely have done so by now. A real shame, a fantastic series. Just have to make do with the DVD set.

I've still got my original 2001 DVD set and sadly it's starting to look it's age. I noticed it was re-released in 2013, does anyone know if it got a better video encode?

I'd love to see this on Blu Ray some day, though I can't find any conclusive answer anywhere on whether the source format was video or film. If it was made on film then this would make a stunning Blu Ray if someone was willing to put the effort in, but sadly I expect it'll stay obscure and at most get an upscale some day.

Of the DVDs I still own it is the second oldest in my collection (the oldest being Terminator: SE) - bought it in October 2001 (a few months after release but I'd only just got my DVD player in September!

Sadly no sign on Blu, no.

AIUI it shouldn't be a ratio *issue* if the TV is set properly to pixel map; it might look odd though as it was released at a time when the normal home owned TV was switching from 1.33:1 to 1.78: 1 so lots of new programmes were shot (and this one released) in a 'half-way house' of 1.66:1 so it had small black bars on the sides on widescreen TVs and small black bars top and bottom on traditional 4:3 sets, to try to not annoy those who hated the new big black bars (and probably annoyed both groups instead!)

Ah, those days when they used to put Easter Eggs on quite a few discs... you know those are pretty much over when nobody is even bright enough to put an Easter Egg on Ready Player One that just begged for it!
