November has appeared already, casting shadows of Christmas and presents and not knowing what to buy. Handily there are several boxsets being set loose in the near future for the SBS DVD Highlights courtesy of Madman; with comedy, crime, thrillers and young adult drama all getting a look in. Several TV shows have wrapped their final season and let loose with complete collections, whilst other releases bring something new to the table.

Following the release of the third and final season last month comes The Killing Trilogy, a collection of all three seasons of the hit Danish crime show.
