Episodes are: 'In Place of Alex'; 'Sally's Accountant'; 'Henry's Lost Love'; 'Helen'll Fix It'; 'Sally's Libel'; 'Lady Merchant'; 'The New Newsreader'; 'Joy'; 'Paintball'; 'George and His Daughter'; and 'Awards'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of British 7 July 2005
As Alex has left Globelink News, her replacement is found. But as always, it's Sally and Henry that steal every scene they're in. This season Sally's accountant steals Henry's money. Later she sues a newspaper for the money. A new newsreader joins Globelink News, but a jealous Henry & Sally combine forces to try and get her the sack. A superb duo indeed.
Another scene stealer is the unfortunately named Joy. This season she dates a married man, and is chief suspect when he is stabbed. Then in the season's last episode she and Sally turn up to an awards ceremony in the same dress.
Also worth mentioning is when Sir Royston's wife seduces a clueless Gus in 'Lady Merchant'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still very funny 2 April 2009
By Mice
If you enjoyed Drop the Dead Donkey when it was originally aired in the 90s then you'll enjoy this 2 disc DVD of the 3rd series. It's great seeing the old faces on DVD, Damien Day, Gus Hedges, George, Dave, Henry, straight-laced Sally & more. This series starts with the introduction of Helen who replaces Alex. The disc is good as it reminds you of the headlines for that week before each episode to refresh you so it's still makes you laugh.

I can't really rate this, as it was a present. The person I bought it for loved this series, so loved this Boxset.
