Not as much a review as good news, 12 March 2007
Author: 17268 from Waynesboro, PA

I can add little to the previous reviews. "Talking to a Stranger" is definitely a classic--Judi Dench is superb, and so is the rest of the cast. The good news for everyone who has seen "Talking to a Stranger" is that it is included in the late-March DVD release of "The Judi Dench Collection." It is one of a number of her performances for the BBC that have been previously unavailable for audiences. Interested fans are advised to check out online DVD sources. A good one is, which sells DVDs, CDs, and books. The selection is good, the prices are about as low as you'll find anywhere, and shipping is FREE. About twice a year, DVDs are ALL on sale for 20% off--and the shipping, as always, is free.
