Drop The Dead Donkey - The Complete Box Set

Drop The Dead Donkey - The Complete Box Set

For the first time ever, all six series of the brilliant, topical TV comedy series Drop The Dead Donkey are featured in this 11 disc DVD box set.

Familiarise yourself with Globelink News, primed to bring you the latest headlines...somehow. Under the ineffective management of Gus, the team bicker, tease, gamble and mock their way through the day's news. Henry and Sally hate each other. Damien would sell his grandmother for a story. Dave would sell his grandmother for a bet. George does his best to lead the team and Alex his deputy does her best to limit the damage.

Winner of 4 British Comedy Awards and a BAFTA, Drop The Dead Donkey established itself as one of the most popular satirical comedy series ever, with a great ensemble cast, colourful enduring characters and a script that hilariously lampooned 1990s media, management and politics.

Cameo performances come from from MPs Teddy Taylor and Ken Livingstone.

As entertaining and funny today as the news-filled week it was broadcast.

Includes the finale and Emmy Award-winning episode Xmas Party

First released: Monday 30th November 2015
