Could Gus really be turning Globelink into the news channel of the future - populist and relevant? Or is he, as Helen suggests, "a paranoid smarm ball, who talks total b*****ks." As usual, the Globelink newsroom is a frenzied den of devious scheming and vindictive gossip, only occasionally interrupted by an inconvenient news story. Sally's old age pension advert backfires, Damien struggles to stay awake interviewing John Major, Henry's newspaper column causes trouble in the office and - could it be true? - Dave is dating Princess Diana! With a great ensemble cast, colourful characters guaranteed to cruelly grate against each other and a script that hilariously lampooned 1990s media, management and politics, Drop the Dead Donkey established itself as one of the most popular satirical comedy series ever.
