Derek Blu-Ray and a Message from Ricky

Even though a number of weeks have passed since Derek Series One came to a close, fans still can't get enough of the hit show, written, directed by and starring Ricky Gervais.

Fans have been asking me about the Blu-Ray release of Derek and today it was announced that it will be released on the same day as the DVD - November 11th. It is priced at £15.40 and you can pre-order it now on Amazon by clicking here. To pre-order the DVD, priced at just £14, click here. The six episodes will be accompanied by some fantastic bonus features, which I assure you are not to be missed!

With Derek still getting such an amazing reaction, today I caught up with Ricky, who had this message for the fans:

"I am honestly overwhelmed by the reaction to Derek. It trended on Twitter during and after every broadcast and the fan reviews on Amazon and iTunes look like I wrote them all myself. The best thing for me though, is all the crazy Twitter accounts and fan sites that have sprung up. My favourite of which is a rather fetching young amphibious dictator. I forget his name. Anyway, enjoy owning the entire first series, the pilot, the making of and shit loads of deleted scenes, outtakes and my hideous laugh ruining other actors' hard work."

On Amazon, the average star rating for Derek is a fantastic 4.7 out of 5, and on iTunes the reviews are equally as positive.

  1. Its been a long long time since I cried with laughter,but Derek made this happen numerous times..I think we have all met or have known someone like Derek at some point in our lives.Ricky cleverly runs along a fine line that combines humor in one scene then in another there is a feeling of sadness.I think Ricky is a genius and Karl is the perfect side kick..imagine spending an hour in the pub with these two!!!

  2. The most fantastic TV sitcom I think, that I have ever seen. It gives you a circle of humor when seeing Karl, Kev, and Derek. Absolutely fantastic, a must buy.
