Spiral - Season 4 - UK DVD release date and cover

Season 4 of Spiral (Engrenages) ended last night on BBC Four, and on Monday BBC Video will release the DVD set of this gripping season. It will cost you only £16 for twelve 55-minute episodes of high quality drama.

It's worth pointing out that season 4 is unsuitable for children under 15, unlike the first three seasons unadvised for people under 18. This latest season wasn't less dark or violent as the previous imo, but all four seasons of Spiral are unadvised to children under 12 in France, so getting down to 15 in the UK seems better suited.

The BBC is also editing a 10-disc box set regrouping all 4 seasons (40 episodes) for £36. The top of the back cover of this set shows us that they decided to go with a different look for season 4 compared to seasons 1-3.

And the back of this set also includes a blurb from a Mirror journalist who seems to have stumbled upon his dictionary of stereotypes - his remark about "blurred lines over guilt and innocence" is very accurate, but the rest of the quote is weird : I'm not sure he fully grasps the notion of insouciance, but even if he does, why the hell did he write that to describe the show ? Same for "existential angst", "shrugs", or "cigarettes" (admittedly, a bunch of fags do get smoked on the show), WTF does it have to do with the core of Spiral, and who decided it was the best quote to put on the box set ? Note to the Engrenages writers : baguette-holding, cheese-eating, beret-wearing, wine-drinking nonchalant frogs as bad guys next season :D.

And keep in mind that seasons 1-3 are on Netflix.
