Default Episode 471

Will the complete episode 471 be include in the UK DVD release? I hope so (as there is a break before the next release). This episode had a couple of scenes edited due to the Edna Pearson storyline - but it was not released on the Edna Pearson story DVD.

Thanks for the info Robert. I took the DVD at its word and assumed episode 470 was completely unedited - I guess it pays to check though doesn't it!

The BBFC have passed the episodes for volume 15. It seems as if the Edna episodes are the cut ones as their length are in the main much shorter than the other episodes in the set. Interestingly the BBFC have already passed these episodes when they were longer and were part of the Edna special release!

1-4 "the early years"
29, 165, 471, 698 "great escapes"
247, 248, 586, 667 "a not so quiet riot"

i'm ploughing my way through Volume 15.. just finished episode 471 with the great helicopter escape.

i think the episodes flow quite nicely in their edited states.. if you didn't know they were cut there's only a couple of scenes that could confuse you.. the episode where we suddenly see Edna pop up talking in Marlene's cell.. and again Edna talking to some bloke in the garden.

a couple of others confused me too - scenes where there are references made to drugs inside urns and Dot going back for tea towels didn't quite flow that well in the running of things.. hope i wasn't half asleep.

still i've just ordered the Edna special so i can watch them in full.

is this the scene that is STILL missing from episode 470 ?
