A rather lovely boxset of Derren at his very best.

This contains three of our man’s must-see live theatre shows, including:

An Evening of Wonders
The psychological illusionist takes us on a journey through mind control and subliminal suggestion and recreates the jaw-dropping ‘Oracle Act’ from the turn of the 20th century. The show features audience participation, shocking stunts and mind games, as Derren shows why you have to see him live.

Something Wicked This Way Comes
This DVD features the Olivier Award-winning stage show. Derren stops his pulse, walks on glass, and armed only with a few newspapers drives the show to a tour-de-force finale of prediction, influence and showmanship that will leave you breathless.

A special tone leaves the audience hypnotised and a woman finds herself sleep-walking through the rows. Is a supernatural force summoned within the Spirit Cabinet or is the medium somehow doing Brown’s bidding? Derren is again at his finest in this stunning theatrical event that brought him more rave reviews up and down the country and “sees him climb to artistic heights rarely, if ever, achieved by any other legends of the magical arts” (Time Out).

WIN AMAZING SVENGALI PRIZES: If you do order the above DVD- be sure to leave a quick (but honest) review, let us know here and we’ll announce a reviewers name as the winner via email on DB’s birthday.

Is Enigma edited short like in the C4 version or is it the full performance (obviously edited somewhat)?

Also interested to know the answer to Tom’s question. Think I’ll be buying nevertheless, though. Oh, and I’m looking forward to the Svengali tour at the Bradford Alhambra on the 04/04/11; can’t wait to see you Derren.

As a non-UK-citizen, I was forced to go to the dark side of the internet to see your shows. I am really glad I can just order the DVD’s now.

Tom: Do as I do, hop on a plane and make a lovely little trip of it. Seen Mindreader: An Evening of Wonders (once) and Enigma (twice) that way, and will do the same for Svengali (thrice, as there’s three different groups of friends of mine that want to go!).

I hope I get the boxset sometime soon, there’s been a bit of bureaucratic confusion surrounding my dad’s credit card that I borrowed to order the set (he never received some kind of form they sent him to sign, so they blocked his card without telling him) which has delayed my order πŸ™
I really need to get my own creditcard, but I keep postponing it. I suppose this is my karmic punishment, or something.

any chance of a region 1 dvd being released? i’d love to take part in this contest but i don’t want to order a dvd that i have to adjust my laptop for… especially when i can only change the region a handful of time

Ian says:

This will be being ordered very soon. Even having everything recorded from C4 broadcasts there’s still so much to be had from deleted scenes and extras. BTW, do any of the DVD’s have a commentary track with yourself and Andy Nyman and is this something that you might be interested in looking at?

Congrats to the new DVD !
I was looking at a old dvd yesterday from Paul mcKenna and Michael Breen doing a Fast Phobia Cure and when they was filming the people that was sitting there and what do i see is it a young Derren Brown (20:37) sitting there.
Is it really you on that tape ???
(Sorry bad English here)

Christopher Robinson says:

Tom, you will still have a problem not being in the UK. They don’t have North American friendly DVDs that play on most DVD players. The DVDs are regional for the Euro region.

One way of getting around this is changing the region on your DVD burner on your computer. Mine only allows 4 changes, though, so you’re still stuck.

I wish they’d just release DVDs for the N. American market.

take care,

I was on that course (September 97) and Derren was definitely on it, he amused the delegates with card tricks in the break. Looked very different, sloppy jumper, pill box hat.

Berber Anna says:

Chris, not everyone who isn’t in the UK isn’t actually in Europe. For instance, I live in the Netherlands, so I can’t see the televised shows but the DVDs work just fine.
