Derek recounts the Christmas Nativity story, aided and abetted by Broad Hill's staff and visitors.Watch the Derek: The Special at 10pm on Monday, December 22nd on Channel 4.
I love Derek
Plot twist. Gervais isn't actually acting here, just being himself. He only has to act when he's discussing outtakes and stuff for the documentary type films. Either way I'm sure we can agree that his acting is semen all.
Love Ricky Gervais but annoying that he puts his atheist ideas into everything he does, Everyone knows you're an atheist stop pushing it onto people and stick to the masterpieces like Derek, Office, Extras, Hello Ladies (that's Stephens actually) but yeh keep up the comedy! Can't wait for the next project
gervais pushing his atheist beliefs on everyone
We get enough of the other ‘belief’ systems don’t we? I don’t like militant atheists or theists I believe it’s the ridiculous hypocrisy that fuels much of Gervais comedy.
Put the baby in the mangler 😂
Biggest talent this country has ever produced. Ricky 👏🏻
F*cking hell. What happened to Ricky Gervais? What a pile of absolute dross this thing was. At least he managed to stay in character for more than 30 seconds this time.
You’re a soulless jerk aren’t you
Well, I think you need a bit of intelligence to truly appreciate this, don't worry yourself about it.
You're an idiot, play a record.
I hope you get this message Rick. Remember the podcasts you guys did about the future. Karl gives a list of predictions, one of which was the glasses that you can wear, so that you can see whatever you like in the normal environment? he said about turning a street into the urban getto.Well look up Microsofts Helo Lens. I remember you dismissing it straight away like i did, but it is coming true. Speaking of this can you guys please all get back together and do another series of podcasts. Its been a while now so their loads to be catching up on. Im a massive fan and been following you since you started on XFM. I know you cant be assed to do much admin but it would blow my mind if you replied. I dont have tweeter so thats why im posting here & hope you pa passes it on lol.
This show looks so boring
"I put my dick in a mangler."
it seems a bit sour. kind of simplifying autistic people and the nativity story in one lazy sketch. gervais is a bit of a Billumin nasti
Derek is just a bit stupid but also incredibly innocent, but that's the comedy behind it.
so why does it offend you so much if i say derek is autistic? Does it spoil your view of the show?
@Mihai-Ciprian Ghilinta He's probably 13 or something, he'll just keep saying nonsense like "herperderping," whilst thinking he's making a point. He'll just keep spouting crap until you say "ok dude."
@jimijam89 Aw, it's so cute that you're trying to act all tough and what not. Did I rustle your jimmies? Or was it your jammies? In any case, I'm really sorry that I said 'maybe' in my first comment. I just like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
You're trying to say your point of view is supported by everyone else? Maybe you're a placated moron that's opinion is getting swept up in the current of having your emotions spoon fed to you.
this is better than the Xmas special ' seen the video mate!'
like eastenders :)
Is Derek Karl Pilkington? This looks like Karl's interpretation of the bible
@Lucas Michael Luzzi Well, you know, corporate gigs which is really stand up on a larger scale.
@Blerg Blerguson he did a stand up?
Ricky also uses things Karl has said in his standup.
Where is the Bald Mancunian orange? Ricky, get Karl in the special!
Glad that talentless pilkington has gone
PMSL but why does Ricky stop making series that we love?
Ever heard of "leaving on a high note"?
I've only seen series 1 of Derek, why is Karl not in it anymore?
(In universe reason) Dougie had too much stuff on his mind, and after getting electrocuted, he quit. (Real life reason) Karl didn’t want to do the show anymore, he probably hated acting or wearing that wig
Short answer, because he got replaced by this other guy. Long answer (which is ironically shorter), you need to watch season 2.
So bored of Derek... It's a character that Ricky enjoys playing a little too much.
I love it
god i miss Dougie. fuck this new guy.. he makes me hate derek as as how
@Mihai-Ciprian Ghilinta bore off
@DarklordDaUnicorn DaThird Obviously seen them.. I was kind of a hipster on that one, I was following the podcast long before they used the audio for the animated series. Those were the days...
I can't tell if you guys have seen them yet, but go watch the XFM show with Karl in them or just watch The Ricky Gervais Show.
@ADucksOpinion Yes I read something about it. I know that Ricky would never do something solely out of popular demand, and if he decides to go forth with another season, it's because he feels he has more to add to the story. I've always admired that artistic ethic in him. Having said that, I wouldn't be disappointed if he decided to stop the series now either. As long as he keeps doing his thing, I'll always be left satisfied and smiling. (that's what she said)
Cant wait to the xmas special. Wish I was back in the UK just to see it. Nice one Ricky! Best regards, TGV P.s. Kev is such a legend!!! lolololol
Where are you right now if you're not in the UK?
The Nativity story told by Derek.
@Davis White You're weird..
Can you do a video where you (as Ricky) is sat in a video and then Derek walks past, Like a cross over to prove that Derek is a different person
A mangler..I love this..it's genius .pmsl.Ricky Gervaise... ;-)
That's pretty much the bible for ya.
I'm hoping at some point in the episode, the boiler breaks down and they will have a special guest come in to repair it. Keepin' me fingers crossed n' that.
Who? Freddy Krueger?
ShoeLube I'm like a caretaker to Suzanne's house, going 'round fixing things that she's FUCKED UP!
Perhaps after he's done that, he could take a look at the tiles, decide they're a bit loose and rip 'em off.
Have you replaced Karl?
@andy kaufmann He chose to leave as he felt out of his depth apparently. He doesn't believe he can act. Ricky made a comment about it on Twitter.
yeah, why in the name of christ is karl no longer in the show?
"I've seen the video" Hahaa Is this going to be a feature length episode?
Yeah, "The Special at 10pm on Monday, December 22nd on Channel 4."
Would rather have a Christmas message from David Brent.
Why not have both, lol.
