Your fault here...the original BBC video production IS six episodes. No more than that was EVER put on film. Want the whole story? Read the books. But this covers the Guide and even dives into the next book. So yes, this is "the whole thing" as far as anything ever put on video goes.

Please get your...ahem....story straight.

This is a great way to use up the $3 vudu credits from the other day.
I still had my 10% off code to use, so the total came to $1.50

No one's fault here, but this is only season 1 (6 episodes) of the TV series... Not the complete story.

If it was the whole thing, I'd snap it up in an instant!

FYI, this has little more in common with that 2005 movie than the title... It's the TV version of the BBC radio drama, both of which are so much better than that lousy movie!
What do you mean by this, according to imdb there is only one season with a total of 6 episodes?!

Oh and PSA: the series (not the bonus stuff) is free on Amazon Prime for streaming. This is still 100% worth buying, but just in case anyone reaaaaaaaaaally doesn't want to part with five bucks.

I picked this up earlier this week.

PSA. Although it says Restored and Remastered, this is in SD and only ever will be. BBC filmed these using equipment that was just about equal to around 578 vertical resolution.

The Restored and Remastered tagline is very misleading. The picture IS better than the old DVD but not a true remaster. The sound is remasted but users say the channels aren't done correctly.

There is an official blu ray version of this released but it is just an upscale and isn't any better visually than what we have here.

All in all, this is the best quality available unless software is created in the future that may enhance these in some new way.

Now off to Milliways.
