New R2 Fawlty Towers SE??

Just noticed that Play have listed for re-release the complete Fawlty Towers SE this coming November.

Extras listed;

New interviews with the original cast
Commentary
Out-takes
Original photographs
Torquay tourist information film
Interactive menus
Scene selection

Not a bag full more - although the out-takes and interviews could be good (especially as they've listed it at 14.99 for the set - rrp 19.99) Seems quite cheap and a possible mis-price - do play honour misprices?

edit - not having picked up this series yet, are these not the extras you get with the current releases?

All i remember from the original boxset was interviews with the cast (fairly recent ones) and a visit to what was left of the outdoor set for the hotel and some stuff about the hotel that inspired it all.

Extras are same as the previous version. It just looks like they have lowered the price.
Previously had an rrp of £34.99 for the 3 disk set of one for each series and one for the extras, althought Play have been selling this for £17.99 recently.

Existing 3 disc is just the same, and you get both series.

I find it hard to believe the new release is 1 disc. Extras on a 3 hour long disc will push the compression into diabolical ground.
