With everything else going on in 2017, I never got around to posting about the new DVDs and Blu-rays that I purchased during the year.

So I hope you enjoy this update and that there are things in here you enjoy too. And if there’s other stuff you think I should check out, feel free to let me know!

Now that I’ve listed everything in my current music and DVD collections, I can now do smaller posts on my latest purchases every so often, to show you what I’ve been buying And in October and November most years, in the run-up to Christmas, there are always a few new releases that I want to get.

This week Prince became the latest in a seemingly bewildering number of prominent celebrity deaths in 2016. After Lemmy from Motorhead passed away at Christmas, the Grim Reaper seems to have been putting together his own entertainment festival, picking up people like David Bowie, Victoria Wood, Glenn Frey, Ronnie Corbett, Paul Daniels, Terry Wogan, Frank Kelly, Alan Rickman, and many other, with Prince being the latest. We’re only in April and already the year hasn’t been great for the celebrity world.
