€8 per volume

In 2011, Crest began issuing DVDs with just two episodes each; a larger sticker promised 12 DVDs (the full Year 1). There are no extras. Soundtracks are German and English. The box art headlined the stars "Barbara Brain" (sic), "Martin Landau" and "Nick Tate". The rear art correctly credited Bain and included Barry Morse. The name Crest appears nowhere on the packaging (it only lists Starlight Film, the distributor).

The DVDs had no extras. The menus were static, using the same images as the 2004 E.M.S. menus (which were more dynamic). The top level menu showed the two episodes with a small screen showing a short clip. The second level (episode) menu showed language (German or English), three chapters (with very short clips for each), and a text button to start the episode.

Crest also released the series on Blu-ray (but in standard definition).
