Christmas Specials, Episode 2 - Part 2

Final special. David Brent secures the services of a dating agency and meets up for drinks with a rather disappointing selection of single women.

Further details

David Brent secures the services of a dating agency and, in between making celebrity appearances in nightclubs for £500 a go, he meets up for drinks with a rather disappointing selection of single women. The office Christmas party kicked off like any other but there were a few surprises in store. The first was the arrival of David Brent's date, who turned out to be a very attractive and intelligent woman (almost as intelligent as David). The second involved Dawn, who had left early with boyfriend Lee, but who later returned alone, marching straight into the arms of Tim.
