4-disc set coming out late in January
Posted by David Lambert
Espionage and assassination in Cold War Britain: the Golden Globe- and BAFTA-winning actor Edward Woodward (The Equalizer) delivers a powerful performance as a Cold War assassin caught in a tangled web of duty and deception.
In the long war of nerves between East and West, British agent David Callan has distinguished himself as a valuable asset: a competent killer who understands all the political and psychological angles. But after a stint in Soviet prison, Callan wants out of the game. His coldly calculating superiors, Hunter (William Squire, Anne of the Thousand Days) and Bishop (Geoffrey Chater, Hotel du Lac), have other ideas. Callan soon learns that leaving his profession might be more dangerous than staying in-and that men like him have as much to fear from friends as from enemies. In these final 13 episodes, this taut series elevates the spy thriller to emotionally charged drama.
Acorn Media has announced their next 4-DVD collection of the British drama will arrive on January 26th with Callan - Set 2. You'll get 13 episodes from the '70s, running 663 minutes long and presented in full screen video and English mono sound. Extras include Audio Commentaries with star Edward Woodward for episodes 5 and 11, and a Woodward biography. Cost is $59.99 SRP in the USA, and CA$74.99 SRP in Canada. Here's a look at the packaging:
