During the Christmas Party when David is talking to Carol about being "stitched-up", he makes reference to Series 1 Episode 4, "Training" and his impromptu guitar performance. He says he did a cover of Bob Marley's 'No Woman No Cry', and Oliver, "the office black guy" loved it, but the BBC cut it from the programme... Oliver wasn't in Series 1, he moved from Swindon in Series 2. See more »


Tim Canterbury: The people you work with are people you were just throw together with. You know, you don't know them, it wasn't your choice, and yet you spend more time with them then you do your friends or your family. But probably all you've got in common is the fact that you walk around on the same bit of carpet for 8 hours a day. And so, obviously, when someone comes in who you... you have a connection with... yeah. And Dawn was a ray of sunshine in my life and it meant a lot. But, if I'm really being ...

The Office Xmas Specials 26th & 27th December 2003
28 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After 12 cringe inducing but genius funny episodes, The Office closed down with a two part Xmas Special. Thankfully it turned out to be a fitting closure. We catch up with the departed employees who are destined to end up at the Wernham Hogg Xmas party. As we head towards that night we are introduced to more cringe worthy sequences involving the deluded Brent, the lovelorn waste that is Tim and Dawn and Gareth's power trip. Internet dating figures prominently and brings superb comedy scenes that are typically tinged with sadness. Then the party begins and some home truths are said, some backbones are shown, and finally us fans get the punch the air moment we always hoped we would get. Brilliant. 10/10
