Footnotes

  1. The video sleeve appears to render this episode's title as "Battlelines", although the small case font makes it difficult to tell for certain.
  2. In the case of sets, the certificate is over the set as a whole (unless stated otherwise).
  3. Copies were individually numbered, with at least 19,434 produced. Also contains a 16 page introductory color booklet to the series.
  4. This rating (provided by Amazon.co.uk) appears anomalous - all four pilot episodes individually are rated no higher than PG.
  5. With "What You Leave Behind".
