Office Gossip (BBC Sitcom, Pauline Quirke, Robert Daws)



In sitcom Office Gossip, written by Paul Mayhew-Archer, single mum Jo (Pauline Quirke) works as a PA at a toy firm. Office Gossip aired the same year as Ricky Gervais’ The Office and whilst there is nothing intrinsically wrong with this show in comparison (especially as it came from the always reliable Mayhew-Archer and Stephen Moffat was script editor) it seemed somewhat dated.

Cast: Pauline Quirke (Jo), Robert Daws (Rod), Neil Stuke (Simon), Pippa Haywood (Maxine Wells), Daniela Denby-Ashe (Cheryl Potts), Charlotte Frances (Sam), Ian Barritt (David Wells), Wolf Christian (Terry Hill),

Writer: Paul Mayhew-Archer / Script Editor: Stephen Moffat / Producer: Matthew Francis / Director: Christine Gernon
