    I haven’t received mine yet too. It is over 6 weeks now and I’m getting a bit fed up of the wait so hope something will arrive soon. Suppose I’ll just have to be patient for some more time.

    Zavvi Zavvi Zavvi, what a bunch of twonks. Amazon won't ship to Australia and Zavvi will ship but packaged so poorly in thin sliughtly buble wrapped paper they will arrive smashed to pieces in a torn envelope. After hours of communication and emails to Zavvi they proved as useless as waterproof toilet paper, letter to Australia Post and a full report to the bank my bank refunded my Money. Only then did Zavvi call me to confirm I wasn't committing fraud. Then they thanked me for my time and hung up. No replacement offer, no discount nothing. I can't speak low enough about Zavvi.

    My only problem is I can't get the Blue Rays in Australia. Come on Doug or Amazon. Share the ,love with the rest of the world please and let fans outside the UK or US but the blue rays.

    You can try the japanese ones. Maybe they'll be better.

    Still no sign of my replacement disks, I'm sure they will arrive one day but I have a box set to watch that I don't want to start until I know the good disks will arrive.

    I haven’t bought the discs yet as wondering if the new ones will have been issued to retailers or if I would end up buying the bad ones? Are the replacement ones available with the collection from any known retailers?

    Just fired off my email requesting replacement discs, will report back when I get them.

    This is a tough one as I assume there's no difference in the item/sku code as far as retailers are concerned. If retailers bought a bunch of stock on release they'll presumably be dispatching that stock first so a bit of a gamble. If you did get an older set at least the beeb are replacing discs.

    I notice the Beeb are not selling them directly on their shop site. https://shop.bbc.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=Red+dwarf bit tricky knowing what to do.

    I e-mailed the DVDSupport e-mail address last Tuesday and they stated in their reply that they are approximately 4 weeks away from having the replacement discs available and then shipment will take place thereafter. So it is almost a week on exactly so maybe if we are lucky us Dwarfers will start to receive them in 3-4 weeks perhaps. I'm glad I asked for an update as we have been waiting a fair time now and although it was all the way back to January 14th that a lot of us received bad series 3 and 5 discs in the original release, at least it looks like they are getting it right in the end.

    I remember my previous Dwarfathon before this year's one was a summer 2015 one, so for this mini 3/5 Dwarfathon it will be fun to watch in the summer again. It's a shame they didn't notice the fault in QC but as long as they get it right in the end and obviously those who have requested the discs are getting them for free then fair enough.

    Well it has now been 11 weeks since I got a message from the BBC about the replacement disks, 11 weeks ago they said it would be about 4 weeks for replacements to be sorted and begin shipping.

    Big fail.

    I understand it can take some time for smeg to work out but, well, why not just say you will be informed when...….. rather than sayin 4 weeks and disappointing people. I have been putting off watching MY box set until the replacements are here. :yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn::yawn:

    Well yes indeed, I remember nearly spending money on a train and overnight stay in Manchester for a Red Dwarf meet up, from all accounts it turned out to be a cup of coffee in a café that even the café wasn't told about. What a waste of money that would have been. If I had wasted money on that 'event' I would have been F-F-Furious. Wasn't it advertised that Robert Lew was going to attend as well. What a joke !! I never even seen the promised video of the event.
