Xfm Series 3

Xfm Series 3 ran from November 2003 to January 2004, and consisted of just 12 shows, including one 'Best of'. The series began with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant fresh from filming The Office Christmas specials. Meanwhile, Karl has gone back on his promise never to do another radio show with Ricky and Steve again because he's managed to get Mondays off. Ricky thinks Karl is exploiting the situation to get out of doing his job. A few weeks later Ricky is outraged when Karl tells him that he's going to Lanzarote on holiday. However, at the end of the series justice is had when Ricky and Steve start gaying Karl up.

There are 12 shows from Xfm Series 3 in circulation and each show has an individual page detailing its contents. They can be accessed by clicking the 'Title' (date) of each show.
