Moss finds a web-site which claims to exactly foretell when a person will die. In Roy's case it would seem to be Thursday afternoon at three. In the meantime Denholm commits suicide when the firm is investigated for fraud. His funeral takes place at three on the Thursday afternoon and during the ceremony Roy's phone goes off. He thinks that his time has come and starts screaming and swearing. Douglas, Denholm's son, arrives for the funeral and takes over the business from his father. He seems a highly sexed man and is delighted when given Roy's phone and it vibrates in his pocket. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


The website predicts that Roy will die on May 3rd, which Roy says is a Thursday. This means that the year in which the episode is set must be 2001, 2007, 2012 or 2018. Given the original transmission date, the year is probably 2007. See more »


Moss complains that some idiot has disabled the firewall on his computer and as a result all the computers on the fifth floor are teeming with viruses. As an IT expert, he would know that firewalls do not prevent viruses (that's what anti-virus software is for) and that turning off the firewall for one computer would not cause problems in all the others.

Douglas: Ah! The IT-department. Run by a dynamic go-getter, a genius and a man from Ireland.

The last time I exercised was never!
21 November 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Police arrive at the head office of Reynholm Industries to talk to Denholm over financial irregularities, in fear he jumps out of the window to his death! Moss has discovered a website that foretells the date of your death, he's asked Roy a lot of questions and finds he's due to go on Thursday. The Church service doesn't go to plan, and during the eulogy Denholm's wayward son Douglas turns up, to claim the estate.

Sad to see the end of Christopher Morris (Denholm) but Matt Berry is a more then capable replacement. I always there was something C.J. (Reginald Perrin) meets Basil Fawlty about Denholm.

Wonderfully funny, completely surreal, Moss's greeting Denholm's widow scene was painfully funny, as was the whole Church service. 8/10
