Television Series

None of David's television series is currently airing in the United States, although Dark Shadows will return to the air in May. Information about the Dark Shadows broadcast as well as DVD releases of David's series appears below.

Dark Shadows

Shortly before the new Dark Shadows film starring Johnny Depp debuted in May 2012, MPI Home Video released a new DVD box set that includes all of the original series episodes. The series had previously been available in smaller multi-disc volumes, but this was the first time the entire series had been released as a single unit. Dark Shadows: The Complete Original Series comes in a coffin-shaped box containing 131 discs with 450 hours of programming including all 1,225 episodes of the series.

The first version of this box set was a limited numbered edition with a signed postcard from Jonathan Frid. It was released on April 10, 2012. All copies have been manufactured and distributed to retailers, and most retailers have sold out their stock. A limited number are showing up from third-party sellers on sites such as Amazon and eBay; however, most of these are marked up substantially from the original price.

A second version was released on July 10, 2012. This deluxe edition does not include the postcard signed by Jonathan Frid and is not a limited edition. It is currently available from online retailers such as Amazon.

David Selby made his first appearance as the ghost of Quentin Collins in episode 646 which originally aired on December 16, 1968. Fans may recall that, aside from occasional fits of maniacal laughter, Quentin Collins remained silent for quite some time. His first words are spoken in episode 701 when Barnabas Collins travels back to 1897 to find out why the ghost of Quentin Collins is menacing the Collins family in 1969. Eventually, audiences see Quentin Collins suffer the curse of becoming a werewolf. David Selby's final appearance was in episode 1230 on March 12, 1971.

In January 2015, Decades TV announced that it would air episodes of Dark Shadows as part of its "binge viewing event" leading up to the network's formal premiere in May 2015. Dark Shadows aired on Wednesday, May 13, through Saturday, May 16. Episodes began with the unchaining of Barnabas Collins, so David Selby was not seen as Quentin Collins during the marathon. No plans have been announced to include Dark Shadows in the regular Decades line-up. However, additional Dark Shadows binge events have aired since then.


Falcon Crest

The first three seasons of Falcon Crest are available on DVD. David joined the series at the beginning of the second season.

Although there is no word on a fourth season DVD release, the fourth season of Falcon Crest is currently available on iTunes.

The WB Shop is now accepting orders for Falcon Crest: The Complete Third Season. This is a Region 1 MOD (manufacture on demand) DVD release featuring all 28 episodes from the third season.

The Complete First Season and Complete Second Season are both already available on Region 1 DVD from the WB Shop.

If you're an Amazon shopper, you can find both the Complete First Season and Complete Second Season on Region 1 DVD from Amazon. The Complete Third Season is also now available via Amazon.

For the latest information on Falcon Crest DVD releases in other regions and countries, the best resource is the German Falcon Crest Fan Club site.

Tell Me You Love Me

Tell Me You Love Me, which ran for a single season on DVD, is available on DVD from retailers such as Amazon.

Soldier of Fortune, Inc. / S.O.F: Special Ops Force

Soldier of Fortune, Inc. ran for two seasons in syndication. It was retitled S.O.F.: Special Ops Force in the second season. Since its original broadcast, the series has not re-aired. It is not available on DVD except as a movie presentation of two episodes from the first season, and this title is now out of print. Used copies appear on Amazon, but beware. Because this DVD is out of print, prices can be rather steep.

Radio Theatre

Check out L.A. Theatre Works and the Big Finish Dark Shadows range for recordings of audio dramas featuring David Selby.

Judgment at Nuremberg, featuring David as Col. Parker, is currently streaming on the L.A. Theatre Works site. Listening links also appear below. The play is broken into two parts.
