Brief: This Blu-ray set includes the full uncut prints of Series 4 for the first time in France. As French soundtracks only exist for the cut prints, this means that the 'new' scenes are presented in English with French subtitles. Additionally, the set lacks the commentary tracks featured on the equivalent UK set, and French subtitles are locked on when the English soundtracks are selected.

The set received an exclusive launch at fnac stores ahead of a general release on 20th October 2015. It lacks the commentary tracks, image galleries and several special features included in the original UK DVD/Blu-ray releases.
