The story of an office that faces closure when the company decides to downsize its branches. A documentary film crew follow staff and the manager David Brent as they continue their daily lives.His long-suffering employees include the weasley Gareth, unlucky-in-love Tim, and the object of Tim’s affections, receptionist Dawn.Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s comedy set in a branch of a paper merchant’s in Slough wasn’t the first to be shot in a mock-documentary style by any means, but it set new standards for the genre and took the comedy of acute embarrassment into an environment a lot of us know very well.It’s American adaptation aired on NBC from March 24, 2005 to May 16, 2013 but we think it can’t hold a candle!

an unwelcome imposition. His wife, Sybil, is of a more practical demeanour, but seems to have an immunity

to work. The running of the hotel is thus often left to waitress, maid, and all-round help Polly. Meanwhile,

Spanish waiter and porter Manuel is still struggling with English.
