I need a copy of DVD
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this mini series while I lived in Kuwait in 1989...I missed the end as I came back to the USA...It had bothered me for years on how the series ended and where I can get a DVD of it...I loved it! I have searched and searched the internet Long for Maelstrom...About 3 months ago I found the BBC CULT site..Thak goodness!! Can I write to the BBC to get a copy????

I found the series to be quite engrossing. It moved slow in the beginning, but after the first 2 airings I was completely into it. What was the significance of the dolls and what was the mystery? To this day in 2006 I am still wondering.
