Comparison between the TV Version as broadcasted on the 30th of May 2013 and the Producer's Cut, taken from the US Blu-ray by Lionsgate.


- 10 alterations
- No difference in running time


Although there were no indications during the broadcasts, and despite very explicit scenes that could be seen on TV, the advertisements for the home cinema release of this very recommendable series hinted at missing elements: "Unrated episodes featuring content that was cut for broadcast" were, for example, promised for the US release.
Five of the episodes are marked as "Producer's Cut" in the inlay and menus of the BD and are indeed different from the TV versions. However, there are no differences in running time, which means that it will be impossible to judge the contents of further releases on just the length. At least it can be said that all these changes are actually removed censoring and NOT the addition of scenes that were taken out of the episodes in order to tighten them up. These are all the episodes with alterations:

1x05: Coquilles
1x06: Entrée
1x08: Fromage
1x10: Buffet Froid
1x12: Relevés

Episode ten (Buffet Froid) ends with the murder of Dr. Sutcliffeet, who has just been introduced in order to treat Will. Hannibal is killing him quite brutally and the TV Version had to be cut in order to reduce the level of violence. Several close-ups were removed and replaced with extensions of more harmless shots.The BD is definitely quite a bit harder to watch.

By the way: the UK BD was released a few weeks earlier but only contains the censored versions of the episodes.

This episode also shows the angels with the blood covering their butts from episode five.

Note: There is a very brief flashback of only 1-2 frames showing the angels again in minute 17. The editors just left the original frames in that time.



Alternative Footage
36:49-36:51

When Will finds Dr Sutcliffe's corpse, the tracking shot towards it is a lot longer and the mangled head can be seen longer. The TV Version shows the following shot 2 sec earlier.

Alternative Footage
37:14-37:15

Hannibal can be seen earlier working on Dr. Sutcliffe's head.

2 sec




Alternative Footage
41:41-41:44

The TV Version shows the shot longer, Hannibal turns a bit and Georgia can be seen better in the background. Afterwards, alternative footage can be seen, mostly because of Hannibal's different posture at the end of the shot.

TV Version 1,3 sec longer

TV Version longer
41:46

The TV Version shows Georgia insignificantly longer and then Hannibal a few frames earlier.

+ 1,5 sec



Alternative Footage
41:47

Not very interesting: the TV Version shows the close-up a bit earlier, whereas the Producer's Cut shows the previous longshot longer.

TV Version 0,1 sec longer



Alternative Footage
41:49-41:52

The Producer's Cut cuts to a gory close-up, showing Hannibal sawin into the cheeks.

The previous alterations sum up to 15 more frames for the Producer's Cut. These are made up for in an irrelevant shot: Hannibal can be seen a tiny bit longer from behind in the Producer's Cut, the TV Version shows him quite a bit earlier from the front instead.

TV Version 0,6 sec longer
