Can you double-check whether subs on the Blu-ray are fixed? That would really be unfortunate.
That's already been confirmed to be the case, though they're mechanically forced, not burned in, if that makes a difference.

Well, does that mean they can be removed or made optional in ripping them?

There may be some kind of workaround though I'm afraid that's beyond my technical expertise

Yes. With DVD there are also players (hardware and software) that ignore such restrictions by default, but I don't know if a similar thing exists for Blu-ray.

Are there any rumours of a US release?

If there is it's doubtful to be as good as the UK release and won't be at the correct speed.

Easy to do on a HTPC with AnyDVD or DVDFab Passkey, so I might get this after all.
