BAFTA winning comedy about the Slough paper-merchant where life is stationery… David Brent (Ricky Gervais) is a petty, pompous boss who thinks he's the funniest, most popular man in the world.
He is wrong.
Tim (Martin Freeman) really is popular and funny but the joke is on him, as he's stuck in the middle of this little world - a world in which he hates everything except the receptionist Dawn. Will Tim escape? Will Dawn choose the right man? And will David Brent ever regret letting a film crew into The Office.
"Original and accurate and painfully funny: it will have every office in the country twitching with spasms of recognition... This is a gem."
"I suppose I've created an atmosphere where I'm a friend first and a boss second... probably an entertainer third."
