May 8, 2010 - Queen Of Swords DVD Set details. All of this information is still posted on this page but it has been pushed down pretty far, so I'm adding it again as a new update, just so everyone knows I am still taking orders within North America.
The Queen Of Swords Complete Season on non-regioned DVD is all 22 original episodes plus 5+ minutes of Bonus Material. These region-free discs are produced from syndicated airings of the show during 2004, recorded straight to my PC from my DISH satellite television in NTSC and transcoded for DVD format with interactive menus. The 6 DVDr's play on most stand-alone DVD players and on all computers (with DVD-rom drive). Physical discs are labeled with Sharpie pen and packaged inside Classic Standard style Dual cases with informational inserts.

Read some customer comments from recipients. People have been sending their thanks and compliments for nearly five years.
Total cost including shipping is $35.00 USD payable by PayPal, personal check, money order, or well-concealed cash. Since 2007, I have limited orders to within North America only, utilizing Priority Mail by USPS. Sorry for the inconvenience, but international shipping is painful and unreliable. Thank you for your consideration.
Email me with your interest in this and any other Peter Wingfield or Tessie Santiago DVDs or videos!! Please include your location (USA, Canada or other).

January 2008 - Please Please Please take notice. I really need to know more info from you guys when you request details on acquiring your fan-produced DVDr sets. I ask for your physical location. Your country. Your state. That's as specific as I ask off the start. I've received so many requests without this information and I tend to not respond to those shortshortshort emails; i.e. I don't take your request seriously. I think you're fishing me out to see what I'll say. Well, I will send you useful information ONCE YOU SEND ME USEFUL INFORMATION. WHERE WOULD I BE SHIPPING TO? If you think I may have misplaced your email, please email me again with your interest and your location. Thank you very much.
May 2007 - I'm now trying to limit orders to North America only (continuing to utilize Priority Mail by USPS). Sorry for the inconvenience, but international shipping is painful and unreliable. Thank you for your consideration.
October 2006 - discs still available with slight changes in packaging and a corresponding price reduction. Due to technological devolutions and my lack of time or energy, the "full color," "fancy" artwork is being abandoned. The DVDr's themselves are the same, fully authored, chaptered episodes with audio-tracked menus.

Rain's QoS WEBSITE moved to a new PAID server! YAY! The Highlander site will be moved next.
The Queen of Swords series reruns aired (loosely) in order on the SíTV cable channel !!!
SITV (based in L.A.) went live nationwide Feb 25, 2004, and The Queen aired Saturdays (but on an ever-changing scheduling) !!! Channel 159 on DISH Network. The station has since replaced the show with other programming. I have no info on other satellite or cable companies. Please email me if you have information!
"...the Queen of Swords finds an unlikely comrade in Robert Helm
(played by Peter Wingfield), an English Doctor who trades his musket
for a scalpel, vowing to save lives, not take them. He has little
patience for Tessa, believing her to be a spoiled member of the
nobility, and less for the Queen of Swords, despising the blades
with which she deals justice, yet Helm keeps finding himself strangely
attracted to the beautiful avenger in black."
blurb from Highlander Fan Central and the Queen of Swords Presskit
