Win Death in Paradise Season 1 on DVD!

Death in Paradise Season 1 DVD

So BBC Home Video made us an offer we couldn’t refuse, so be sure to thank them for providing us ammunition for some more giveaways. Gotta love it. In this case, it’s Death in Paradise, a Cosette-approved mystery series with eight episodes across two discs. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

Sent to the tiny island of Saint-Marie to solve a mysterious murder, quintessentially British cop Richard Poole is a complete fish out of water. Awaiting Richard is a ramshackle station and a very different type of policing. His new partner, Camille Bordey, is instinctive, feisty, and brilliant, and the rest of the team certainly has its own unique way of doing things. Though Richard would never admit it, they make a perfect team, and with a new mind-boggling mystery to solve in every episode, Death in Paradise will intrigue and tantalize.

That’s Ben Miller as Richard with Sara Martins as Camille. Red Dwarf fans, take note: Danny John-Jules is also among the cast. We have a spare copy of the DVD to give away. Want to win it? Here’s the deal, just like it was before: you can enter the contest once a day using the form below. A month from now, we’ll draw the winner and announce it on this page. Good luck!

Win Mark Knopfler’s Privateering on CD!

Mark Knopfler: Privateering CD

It’s Mark Knopfler’s Privateering, available as a two-CD set from Verve. Here’s what he has to say for himself:

I chose to make a double album this time just because of the sheer volume of material. I didn’t want to separate songs into genres and I didn’t want to leave too many songs on the shelf. I just wanted it to be a reflection of the fantastic sessions we had. With a great bunch of players, it’s the same as a great group of actors reading a script from the page, the thing can come alive in ways it just never has before. This is the band I have been working towards my whole life.
