    Persuaders! (The): The Complete Series [BLU-RAY]




    Two millionaire playboys - one a peer of the realm, born into money, and the other a self-made man who fought his way out of the New York slums - are conned by a retired judge into righting wrongs in a series that combines action, style, humour and panache in large quantities!

    Regarded by many as being the finest of Lew Grade’s ITC film series, The Persuaders! stars Roger Moore and Tony Curtis as the mismatched playboys with an eye for the ladies and a penchant for landing themselves in trouble.

    Highly anticipated on Blu-ray, this very popular action adventure series is presented here in stunning High Definition for the first time. All 24 episodes are featured alongside a wealth of special features.

    This is quite simply thee finest example of how to present a classic television series that I have ever seen. The BBC Doctor Who releases have a lot of love put into them, but this set surpasses that love by a million miles. I've beeen in love with this series for 18 years. I bought the videos, both DVD sets and now this. It's like watching a new series of the Persuaders! that nobody knew about.

    The quality of the restoration is staggering. The extras amazing. I'd seen several of them of the previous DVD release, but the newly discovered footage is worth the price of this set alone.

    The mouth watering tease of The Ex- King of Diamonds (The episode of the Saint) in glorious HD makes me hope that this will be backed up by a bluray series release of The Saint.

    In short, buy this set if you are a fan of Roger Moore, Tony Curtis, ITC or just good classic TV in general.
