Here are our 10 bestselling DVDs from the past year.

(We’ve also compiled our 100 bestselling books of 2018 and our 10 bestselling CDs of 2018.)

Our bestselling DVDs range from crime, drug addiction and historical dramas, to stories exploring the power of books; from moving tributes on the lives of creative geniuses, to the tale of an aircraft that changed the world.

Several of the following DVDs are also adapted from books. The Bookshop is based on Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel of the same name, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 1978. The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Society is based on the bestselling epistolary novel co-written by Mary Ann Shaffer and her niece Annie Barrows. Patrick Melrose is based on an acclaimed series of novels written by Edward St. Aubyn. And Inspector Montalbano draws from Andrea Camilleri’s detective stories.

Written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, Loving Vincent is a uniquely crafted imagining of Vincent van Gogh’s life.

It’s our bestselling DVD of 2018.
