A Drop the Dead Donkey film was being made in 1995, but was for some reason scrapped half-way through production. Then, the script was turned into this novel.
The plot (in short): It's New Years Eve 1999 and the Globelink News team are busy dealing with some important points; wondering why George seems taller?
It's a good story and is very funny, but some how it just isn't as good as the TV shows. Nevertheless, you're never going to see this storyline anywhere else, so it's a must to any true Drop the Dead Donkey fan.

Even though Drop the Dead Donkey 2000 was written 20 years ago, it is a tribute to the excellent, analytical satire that many of the jokes in the book could still be used today (especially the foreboding Berlusconi TV). The characters lifted from the sitcom are spot on, quite simply this a brilliant read!

This is a good book, if you liked the television series the book finishes of the story very well.
It is a great story in its own right if you do not know the the tv program.

Old hat now but very amusing and, in some instances, not that far from reality! An unexpected (?) ending. Worth a read.

I picked up this book on our dusty book shelf. It was and interesting introduction to the book so I kept reading. This book has a really different way of writing style than the books I normally read, so it grasped me easily. This book though is not for everyone, though I fully recommend reading it.
