Reviews

Meet Derek Noakes (Ricky Gervais) a tender, innocent man whose love for his job and the people he cares for shines through. He's 49 years old and loves animals, Rolf Harris, Jesus, Deal or No Deal, Million Pound Drop and Britain's Got Talent--but his main hobby is autograph hunting. He works in a retirement home with his mate and landlord, Dougie (Karl Pilkington in his very first acting role). Derek cares deeply for old people because they're kind and funny and tell him stories about the olden days. Hannah (Kerry Godliman) is a care worker at the home and is Derek's best friend. She's smart, witty and hardworking, but unlucky in love, and like Derek, always puts other people first.

After flicking through Netflix I came across this and thought it was worth a punt. I am not a fan of Ricky Gervais and to be honest never had much good to say about him as a comedian. Saying that, nothing really makes me laugh. I watched the first episode of this and continued right to the end. I think I can say that I have never watched such utter brilliance both writing and directing. Ricky has done a tremendous job and portrayed his character perfectly. Derek is loveable, funny and above all pure. As pure as a human could be. This made me laugh out loud and cry out loud. The final episode left me in floods of tears. After watching all of these back to back it has made me think about what I am doing in my life and left me giving thanks for everything that I have. This has got to be one of the most profound, powerful, funny, heart wrenching piece of modern TV comedy drama that I have ever watched in my entire life. The character Derek is played out so well it is really difficult to believe that Ricky is such as funny and annoying person in his own right. I hope that this wins multiple awards as it certainly deserves to. Am I a newfound Ricky Gervais fan, hmmm, don’t know about that but there is one thing for sure, I am a Derek fan and Ricky could not have done a better job if he tried. I would love to know how he researched and created the character. Well don’t Ricky, credit where credit is due. You made me laugh which is very difficult to do, and cry which is even harder. There is to be a second season but it had better be as good and I for one cannot wait to see it.

Ricky Gervais is the creator, Director and acts as the Main Character. He has obviously done immense research into the Care Homes that this represents, though I did disagree with the Manger's attitude on when they should wear gloves. A minor niggle? - Yes!! that is why it's so great and funny because it was the only niggle. If you have experienced or worked in a small care home like this you'll love it ! Can't wait for Series 2 to be released, though I hear that the maintenance man has left the home, which is a great shame because he was brilliant. Highly recommend watching the extra, deleted scenes and how it was made, after watching the series.

This is a great series featuring Ricky Gervais in one of his best roles, the series has some sad moments but it all fits in well. There are also some funny moments which make you laugh out loud. This is well worth purchasing as you can watch it again and again.

Every episode will have you laughing and near tears at exactly the same time! Gervais is a genius; that's not hyperbole. I had no idea of his range as an actor.

This show is an experience. Every time I watch an episode over I notice something new or experience it from another point of view. Quite possibly the best show ever. Ricky Gervais has created perfection.

One of the best programs I have watched, in Blue Ray its an even better picture, masterclass by Ricky Gervais. Derek is a kind hearted, funny & emotional person. Who is very popular in the care home, Derek believes that "Kindness is magic". Several episodes will have your sides spliting from laughing, whilst others have you emotionally attached, and can't take your eyes off it.

I would get this DVD if you like comedies!
