Welcome to donduk. A refuge for those who enjoy Deal or No Deal, the hit Channel 4 gameshow hosted by Noel Edmonds. The award winning gameshow Deal or No Deal has become a big hit for Channel 4 and marks a sensational return to our screens of Noel Edmonds.

Deal or No Deal is enjoyed my millions of viewers daily, where the contestants battle with The Banker to try and win a jackpot of £250,000. Here at donduk you will find full daily reports of each show, as well Deal or No Deal news and specials. Deal or No Deal although initially appearing very simple in format of just opening a few boxes for the chance to win some big money prizes, actually has some potentially complex decisions to be made at points throughout the show, the contestants occasionally try complex or simple gameplay in an attempt to give them an edge in beating the Banker.

DOND and Logan's Run

In the early 70s Michael York starred in Logan's Run with the girl from the Railway Children...Jenny Augeter (I think?). This sci-fi film was about a future world, the population maintained by sending those who reached the age of 30 on a journey to Nirvana. Each day the populus would cheer their new set of anonymous heroes as they ascended on their journey, hoping that one of them would make it, and then they would have to watch as their hopes fried in front of them - no-one ever made it to the final destination, and yet the people continued to hope. They had to hope, they were watching their own destiny [Of course Logan changed all that.]

We watch DOND each day as our new hero arrives at the desk, and follow from the sidelines as they take their journey, hoping that finally we will see someone take the £250k. Maybe it will never happen, we see so many go forward bravely and then have to face their own nemesis; some simply cannot summon up the courage to reject more money than they have ever seen before, and others go too far and end up with pennies. It is possible that someone will get there eventually... isn't it?
