'The Office' UK Special Edition DVD: 'Behind The Scenes' Extras (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Fans of "The Office" -- the original, British "Office" -- can agree: 12 episodes and a Christmas special is hardly enough David Brent for a lifetime. Unlike American series which go on for ages, even though "The Office" was critically acclaimed, it was short-lived.

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since the original series aired, but BBC has just released the entire series on a 10th anniversary Special Edition DVD.

In the clip above you can catch a glimpse of the bonus features: commentary by Executive Producer Anil Gupta, Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais. Fans will dig the insights the show's creators offer. For example, it was Gervais who wanted to downplay the love triangle between Dawn, Tim and Lee, whereas Merchant wanted it to be a main plot.

The DVD includes all 12 episodes (including the hilarious and hard-to-find 2-part Christmas special) and new bonus features including the original pilot, six new episode introductions by Gervais and Merchant and two BBC specials, "Comedy Connections: The Office," and "Heroes of Comedy: Ricky Gervais."
