Diagnosis Murder - Update on Availability of DVDs from VEI for the 4th and 5th Season

The half-season sets should be on seller shelves next week; complete seasons are on the way

Posted by David Lambert
Last week we reported about four titles, each a half-season set, for Dick Van Dyke in Diagnosis Murder on DVD. Here are the items coming from VEI/Millennium: According to Amazon's listings, the two half-season sets from the fourth season were available starting July 30th, while the two half-season sets for the fifth season supposedly became available today, August 20th. In our previous report we told you there were inaccurate, and that we were waiting on word from VEI (Visual Entertainment Inc.) about the correct dates. Today the studio told us that the delay has been resolved, and that they expect all four titles to make it into most stores by August 27th.

Now please do bear in mind, however, that many smaller studios use slower over-land shipping methods (trucks and so forth), rather than faster-but-costlier overnight-air drop shipments. Meaning that retailers can honor the street date in the event that the product has arrived in time for that date. But it is entirely possible that the title(s) might not arrive until later on, after the date in question. So if you don't see the items you want in stock on that date, just be patient. If you've pre-ordered with Amazon, then they will ship the item just as soon as it arrives in stock, so it will end up on your front door as quickly as it can.

If you're the type who prefers full season sets rather than half-seasons, then you might just want to hang on a bit longer in any case. In September (current plans call for the 24th, but that date could possibly move, and as a result Amazon is not taking pre-orders for it yet) VEI/Millennium intends to make Diagnosis Murder - The Complete 4th Season available. Then, on October 1st, they're releasing Diagnosis Murder - The Complete 5th Season on DVD, too. That last one IS available to pre-order from Amazon, and we have high-res box art for it just below. Under that is the smaller box art (previously shown) for the four half-season sets. Any of those five titles may be found at Amazon via the button link immediately below. Stay tuned for news, in the not-too-distant future, about VEI's release of Diagnosis Murder - The Complete Series!
