I, too, would like the D series DVD.

Prepare yourself for the full force of my argument:

Ready?

Here it is:

"C'mon!"

Seriously, if there is not a D Series DVD I will be so cross. You can't have A to C and then stop - that is cruel and unusual!

The basic problem is that we have to sell more of the A, B and C series DVDs before anybody's going to finance the production of the D series. So now you know what to give everybody for Christmas and birthdays!

I think that someone should set up some sort of petition for them to release the D series

Are you advocating involving Amnesty International?

The BBC makes DVDs of lots of rubbish old shows from years ago that no-one watches. Are you really saying that the lack of an audience is not a problem to pumping out those shows but it is for QI?

If you are saying that, I disagree.

gari22 has a point. Why are the BBC being so strict with this show coming out on DVD, when they are happy to pump crap onto the shelves of our local HMV (or... um... all the others are closed).

I didn't watch all the episodes in series D and E because I figured it will all come out on DVD eventually, but if doesn't... I shall be SO CROSS!

The disks don't cost very much, just use one colour printing on the disk and put it in a cardboard sleeve. I don't think any of us would care if they were not in proper cases.

If the BBC are that worried about the costs involved, why not make them available for download (for a price, obviously)? I'd prefer a DVD, but I could always burn my own.

Another great idea.

Moosh is right, let us pay for and download them online. Then you could use the revenue from those download sales to produce a DVD of the E series = everyones a winner!

I would happily download them (providing they were available somewhere else as well as iTunes as I don't use it).

I doubt people are going to suddenly buy seriesí that are four years old!
But QI has grown in popularity since itís move to BBC1 hasnít it (i donít have figures to hand, thatís just a guess!) so wouldnít it sell better? That it turn might encourage sales of the Ďolderí series.

Totally agree with those here who suggest the cheaper alternative of making them available via digital download (not crappy iPlayer). Itunes or whatever.

Has anyone thought of setting up a Facebook demanding the change? I recently set up a "Broadcast QI in America" Facebook group about a week ago. It currently has 52 members. Just set up the group, invite your friends to join it, get them to invite your friends and it soon builds up.

For those interested, you can join my Facebook group here.

Why wouldn't people but the older series? Just like any other series, there is progression, the main progression being the alphabet. It is due to this progression that people would want older series'; to complete the alphabet as such. I don't see why people wouldn't buy the older series because of their 'age'.. . well i hope not.

I think there should be some sort of law which enforces the industry to produce DVD'S etc of any work of Stephen Fry. His words should be recorded whenever and wherever possible to preserve such eloquence.
