Reviews

A year has gone by since we last visited Broad Hill Retirement Home and the old gang is back. Derek Noakes (Ricky Gervais) is still spreading kindness wherever he goes. Kev (David Earl) is still drunk. Dougie (Karl Pilkington) is still grumpy. Hannah (Kerry Godliman) is still the salt of the earth. Wayward youth Vicky (Holli Dempsey) is now working there full-time and providing the residents with 'free' slippers - no questions asked. And there are some new elderly tenants who've since joined the home. Derek's dad moves in, but far from being the sweet old man, he's got whisky in his back pocket and too much lead in his front one.

This is a 21st century example of what Christianity is all about. Maybe this sounds strange in the context of a comedy but Ricky Gervais gently demonstrates what CHARITY really is about: respect for the other inspite of his handicap, unkindness, weakness or un-sociability. This goes for the main character as well as the rest of assorted loosers and loomers around him, some of whom are really unpleasant specimins when we first meet them. Derek, because of his simplicity, makes us see the good in all of them. I was so touched by this series. And it is funny.

Derek has to be the least cynical television show I've ever seen. I love how it wears its heart on its sleeve without being saccharine and expects the best of everyone - at least *sometimes*. There's a tenderness here which is such a rarity in today's TV culture, being as it is, more at home with graphic sex & violence.

If you are a fan of Ricky Gervais then you will enjoy this. Series one is good as well. Karl Pilkington is also great. It is only a short series, there are only six episodes, the same as series one, but the story is very good and quite touching.

Brilliant! Loved every episode. Ricky Gervais as Derek is total genious, his talent for characters seems never ending. I have Kevs little song (ep 1 ****"& a butt plug) as my msg tone, soooo funny!

Ever since I saw Ricky way back on The 11 O'clock show I've followed and loved all of his work - even 'Science'. Series 1 of Derek was a daring breath of fresh air with many genuinely comedic and heartfelt moments. I'd give that 5 stars no worries. Series 2 however, really saddened me. Not in the way intended though. Everything about it was so inferior to the first series.

So where to begin?

Let's start with Kev. The series may as well have been called Kev as he is in it far more now than the main character Derek. To begin with, I have problems with the fact he's just always there in an OAP home, drinking. I know it's only a story but if you're filming something as a supposed fly on the wall documentary (more on that later), then it has to be believable. Anyway, regardless of this, virtually all the jokes in the second series are all well-worn crude euphemisms that are all to do with Kev's disgusting sexual antics. Honestly, I can't remember any gags in the whole thing that aren't sexual gags about Kev. Ricky is so much better than this and I feel a bit let down that this seems to be the only way he thought he could get laughs. Oh and the 'dog' episode when suddenly out of nowhere, Kev is into sculpture and creates a great dog sculpture out of junk.. well, that was just ludicrous. My girlfriend and I just sat and watched in disbelief with cries of "Oh for god's sake! What the ****?" In fact that whole episode itself was beyond cringeworthy. The second the dog appeared I said "He'll get put down" and what happens?

As far as I'm aware, Karl Pilkington chose not to be in this series because he didn't think he was a very good actor. He's wrong, but that's his choice and certainly not Ricky's fault.
