BBC News
Day by day, I watch a bit less... Today's main event: The Proclamation of HM the King.

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

TV dominates this week — and causes my DVD count to actually go up, too! That's because I bought two "complete series" DVD sets from Network: the 1950s Adventures of Sir Lancelot (starring Doctor Who's William Russell) and Gerry Anderson's Space Precinct. Between them that's 11 discs and 54 episodes of TV. But my DVD count only goes up by one, because I also upgraded Robin of Sherwood from DVD to Blu-ray. Plus, there was a new animated Doctor Who release, just to push things up a little further.

Not that the films were slacking either, with four new movie-centric releases, with multiple films, discs, alternate cuts and so on across them. In fact, the only category that doesn't increase this week is short films, which is a shame. Also, it kinda depends how you count it: one of the titles I bought was Indicator's Robin Hood at Hammer double feature, which also includes a Children's Film Foundation short as an extra. Except that "short" runs 61 minutes, which makes it a feature in my book. So there.

Number of titles in collection: 2,918 [up 8]
Of which DVDs: 1,046 [up 1]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,872 [up 7]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 199 [up 1]

Number of discs in collection: 7,242 [up 19]
Number of films: 3,492 [up 6]
Number of additional cuts: 278 [up 1]
Number of TV episodes: 9,422 [up 60]
Number of short films: 1,002 [no change]

See you next week, faithful reader.
