Durham County DVD Edition

* The DVD cover of the Canadian S2 edition (release date July 27, 2010), as it appears on

* Adrienne Mitchell and Janis Lundman wrote on their facebook site that we'll get "some great behind the scenes interviews".
I compiled for ye'll a little teaser picture, taken from the (meanwhile taken down) extra features videos on the official web site.
I'm in fact clueless about what we might see on the DVD:

Btw, Australia has already released a S2 DVD of Durham County if I'm not mistaken.

* A short overview of S1 DVD editions in other regions: Canada, USA, France (multilanguage English and French), Australia. Germany (multi-language English and German): release date 6. August 2010.

And finally, Amazon customers about the S1 DVD:
* A brilliant piece of storytelling. This is extremely intelligent, bleak, thrilling noir, with a great deal of subtext into dynamics between men and women, and male violence toward women. The writing is exemplary, as is the cinematography and performances. ... The best piece of television storytelling I've seen since The Wire.
* It's a great crime drama that I am really surprised hasn't had any advertising on any other channel. It has great characters with depth, mystery/crime plots, along with some family drama, great sets, slightly creepy, sometimes super creepy, great acting...what can I say, I love the show. I am so thrilled to have a second season coming out...
* A "killer" series!

Update :: DVD releases Season 2:
* Canada: 27 July 2010 (NTSC,
* Europe: 20 October 2010 (PAL,
* USA: November 2010 (NTSC,

* Reminder: The series Durham County S2 and Michelle Forbes and Hugh Dillon are nominated for the Golden Nymph Award at the upcoming Monte Carlo TV Festival (the winner will be announced June 10th). As far as I know no one of the crew or actors will be attending :(
They don't know the Grimaldi Forum, do they? You'll miss a beautiful location, guys!

* Durham County season 3, without Michelle, but hey, that's the fate when playing the killer:
- "In the heart-stopping third season of Durham, Mike Sweeney’s new task force investigates the brutal murder of two young boys along the 401 highway corridor, while one of their own officers struggles to bury a dangerous secret."
- " Durham County 3 airs on HBO Canada (Movie Central & The Movie Network) this fall!" - "As season 3 is shot in the fall and into the winter, we think its going to work well airing in the fall. Put the fire on, get a glass of red wine, and descend into the wonderful madness of Durham."
