If you’re anything like us here at Acorn DVD, you love a good sci-fi series, in fact, you’re hooked on them. If you’ve enjoyed past series including Doctor Who and Dead Set, then we think, no wait, we’re confident you’ll enjoy the first series of Dark Matter.


Regardless of whether you enjoy sci-fi usually, we think the special visual effects are incredibly powerful and the plot is like nothing we’ve ever witnessed before, that even non-sci-fi lovers will become engrossed!


Dark Matter


The first series, based on the comic book of the same name, follows a group of six apparent strangers as they awake from a statis on board a spaceship. Even from the opening scene, you know you’re off to a good start, a little mystery hurts no one! If anything, as an audience, it intrigues you further. The intrigue is what fuels a large part of the series. Voted a high score of 7.3 out of 10 on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), we highly recommend the unusual, collaborative creative direction from Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, both creators of Dark Matter. With high-calibre acting, fascinating visual effects and the unmissable storylines, this is a series you can’t afford to miss out on.


The second series is set for premiere in 2016, so if you’re looking for a slightly different box set to get your science fiction pulses racing over the winter months, you’re running out of time to pre-order the first series. Released 12th October. Pre-order series 1 now.
