Did You Know?


The opening theme, "How Soon is Now" is a cover by Love Spit Love of a song by '80s British band The Smiths. It originally appeared in The Craft (1996), also about witches. See more »


In several episodes (mostly from season 5 onward), you can see ceiling segments missing from the manor when low angle shots are used. The ceiling panels are in large square, sometimes rectangular segments that are able to be removed to position studio lights for certain shoots. In many scenes these are missing, revealing the open studio space above the set. See more »


Chris: In the future, everyone tried to control the demon with no name, but it can't be done.
Grams: That's hardly a winning attitude, young man. And why, in heaven's name, couldn't the people in the future find some name for that thing?

User Reviews

Glad the series is out on DVD...finally.
16 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very pleased to see Season One out on DVD, we've been waiting awhile for it. The quality of the shows on the DVDs is fantastic...however there are no "bonus materials" whatsoever. As I don't usually buy a DVD for the extras, I'm not that concerned over it...however I am accustomed to them being there typically.

Also, be aware the packaging is on the unusual side...thinline cases, one per disk (6-disk set for Season One), rather than the usual bulky foldout packs. I actually enjoyed this factor...I'm always struggling with the foldout packs.

If you like the show, you'll be pleased with the DVD quality...but keep in mind with the box set currently released, that's all you're getting...just the show.
