| Drop the dead donkey
Its being around 22 years since the show first aired seems a long time. But we haven't forgotten tight arsed sally Smedley, anchor man Henry Davenport and general shag merchant Dave Charnley. We remember Alex paites who buggered off to the 'high classed' beeb and Helen Cooper and no one can forget the one man chemist which is George Dent and the jargon talking bullock brain hands off executive which is Gus Hedges and we will not forget Joy Merry-weather ( That is what she told me to put BEWARE) and they are all under the watchful eye of their megalomaniac Proprietor Sir Royston Merchant Best mates with Rupert Murdoch and the human torpedo Robert Maxwell
