A Pocket Full of Rye DVD already available in Australia

Thanks to forum member, possum, who found that the Australian DVD of A Pocket Full of Rye is already available in Australia.  It is region 4, so may not play on DVD players in other countries.

The Australian version has several deleted scenes that were not shown in the US or Ireland, probably for sexual content.

You can purchase the DVD HERE or HERE. Both can ship the DVD overseas.

A Pocket Full of Rye will also be available on DVD in the US on August 4th.

 

The Acting Is Marvellous

That's what critics are saying about tonight's Marple: A Pocket Full of Rye.  According to the Los Angeles Times here are some comments:

"The acting is marvellous. As prodigal son Lance, Rupert Graves is handsome and human, and Macfadyen provides a perfect stoic recipient of Miss Marple's shocking revelations. McKenzie is delightful to watch, if a bit direct for the purist;"

Race to the Emmy's

The LA Times has a discussion of which miniseries are in the inside track for the Emmy's.  There are seven submissions with only three nominations, of which the LA times feels is easily predictable.  The three most likely nominations include Little Dorrit, Generation Kill and House of Saddam.  Of these, the winner is not predictable, but Little Dorrit has a slight advantage.

USA Today Critic's Corner pick

USA Today Critic's Corner has chosen A Pocket Full of Rye as one of the Holiday Weekend's choices to watch.

'Cranford's Julia McKenzie makes a promising debut as Miss Marple in A Pocket Full of Rye (PBS, Sunday, 9 ET/PT, times may vary), the first of four new Agatha Christie Marple stories on Masterpiece Mystery. The tone is a little too arch (despite how they're sometimes played on screen, Christie's Marple mysteries are not comedies). But the plot is relatively true to the book and so is McKenzie, who drops some of the excess twinkle Geraldine McEwan brought to the role."
