Pre-Orders for Murdoch Mysteries with Alastair Mackenzie
I received several mails of late regarding Sigma's co-founder and notable actor Alastair Mackenzie. First, I want to extend my appreciation to the lovely note sent regarding coverage Al and in his recent UK stage appearance in The Priory. Thrilled the play did as well as it has with all the many nominations and all; most of all very glad people were able to see him -jealous I am too!
Others have asked about what he is doing next. Unfortunately, I don't have much to report on for the moment save heads up gorgous photo has been released on his IMDB page and pre-orders are available (US Amazon here, UK Amazon here) for Murdoch Mysteries Season Two DVD. According to this recent report this will be out May 4 in the US, but the UK one says next week (lucky if true!)Quotage: "Acorn also filled us in on some further details about this 4-disc set. It will contain 13 episodes running 598 minutes, which are presented in anamorphic widescreen video. Sound will be in English stereo, and it will be accompanied by English subtitles as well. Bonus material consists of a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette on the first disc, and on the fourth disc you'll find Character Bios, Cast Filmographies, and a Photo Gallery. We already passed along that the list price will be $59.99 SRP in the USA, but Acorn also informs us that the cost in Canada will be CA$74.99 SRP (for fans north of the border)" As a reminder too, the Mentalist will be released on DVD in the UK next month (already available here in the US); a clip of Al starring in the episode 'Russet Potatoes' can be seen here.
No word yet on what is happening with Monster Mutt, and we all remain hopeful that the Last Word will be sold and eventually shown in theatres for us in the UK/US.
