We need a Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace DVD boxed set.

And before you say that a boxed set does exist, don't, because it's not formatted for consumption by Americans who own American DVD players.
If you've never been lucky enough to have heard of him, allow me to introduce you to horror novelist, Garth Marenghi. In the 1980s (in reality, 2004) Garth wrote a horror/drama television series for the BBC. For some reason the series was never aired…until now.

The action takes place at the Darkplace Hospital, which unfortunately was built on top of a portal to hell. The BBC recently uncovered the filmed episodes of the series, and they’re showing them now, introduced by Garth Marenghi himself (who also wrote all the episodes) and features current interviews with cast members (Garth was also a member of the cast…and he also directed all the episodes).
A while back the SyFy Channel played the show (back when they were the SciFi Channel) and they were terribly entertaining. I know grainy versions exist on YouTube and other sites, but I want it big and clear and with some extras. So I'm requesting--nay, DEMANDING--that an American format Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace DVD boxed set be released in the near future. I don't know about anywhere else, but it would make my corner of the world a better place.
