May 2010 News Bulletin 2

“If any news should come.”


DVD Due Monday 17 May 2010.

The UK release of Warner Bros Sherlock Holmes (2009) on DVD and Blu-ray disc (sale and rental) is due on Monday 17 May 2010.  The DVD is widely available on pre-order for £9.99 but the best deal, at the moment, seems to be from Tesco Direct  They’re offering an ‘exclusive’ digital download (via PC or Mac) with each purchase, presumably with at least some of the extras you get on the Blu-ray disc.  Best price seen on the latter is £15.85, again across a range of outlets.
