It's been three years since the BBC documentary crew first arrived at the office. Back for one last visit, they find Gareth Keenan now in charge and is running the office with a military precision. Since we last saw David Brent he has become a sales rep for a cleaning products company, released his own pop single and has acquired an agent to look after his celebrity appearances. He visits his old workplace regularly, despite him successfully suing Wernham Hogg for unfair dismissal. The big news for Tim is the imminent arrival of Dawn. The documentary crew has kindly offered to fly Dawn and boyfriend Lee from Florida back to Slough for the office Christmas party. Written by Anonymous

[Dawn is coming back from America for the office Christmas party]
Tim: Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing her again, of course. She's my friend, and she's a good friend, and no, I don't know exactly how I'll feel. I'll feel like a friend feels, whatever that is, you know, but as I said, I'm not going to ask her again! Come on!
[pauses, grins]
Tim: I might ask her again. No, I won't, I won't. She would have to do the asking.

The Office Xmas Specials 26th & 27th December 2003
28 December 2014 | by SpikeopathSee 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
