The Office: Series 1

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. Pedantic jobsworth Gareth (Mackenzie Crook) agrees with him. They're both wrong. Tim (Martin Freeman) is popular and funny but the joke is on him, as he's stuck in the middle of their little world - a world in which he hates everything except the receptionist, Dawn (Lucy Davis). Will Tim escape? Will Dawn choose the right man? Will MI6 ever call on Gareth to help them out? And will David Brent ever regret letting a film crew into The Office?
