New Exclusive Derek Competition

I said that when @tadpole_hitler got to 10,000 followers on Twitter, that I would launch a new Derek competition for the fans. Well, at the time of writing I am at 10,807 and I am a man of my word. Today I'm launching my second Derek competition and I've teamed up with the hugely creative Posteritty to give away two very exclusive prizes.

Posteritty design works of art inspired by popular culture, pushing minimalism to its limits by using the most basic shapes that still make something recognizable. They created a fabulous piece of art of Derek, Dougie and Kev and attracted the attention of not just the fans of the show, but Ricky Gervais himself.

Well, I have an A3-sized limited edition print to give away as a star prize, but what makes this particular print extra special is that it is signed by Ricky Gervais, David Earl and Karl Pilkington, making it a truly one-of-a-kind Derek collectors item.

The runner-up will win a limited edition Posteritty print of the famous crabs: Twat, Quim, Tits, Boll and Ocks, signed by Ricky Gervais.

"Why AREN'T you writing on Crabs?" by Posteritty

The limited edition prints are available to buy from the Posteritty online shop at and you can follow them on Twitter at @posteritty. What you can't buy though are the signed versions, so for your chance to win all you have to do is answer the following question in 100 words or less:

Q. What is your favourite scene from Derek and why?

Once again the competition will be judged by the man himself, Ricky Gervais! What makes this different to the previous competition is that it's not about creative writing. We're looking for your honesty, your sincerity and your personal viewpoint. So whether it is Dougie and Vicky discussing hair styles, Kev urging Derek to lick a toad or Hannah reflecting on her life, let us know your favourite scene and why in 100 words or less. There is no right or wrong answer but there can only be one winner and one runner-up and Ricky will be on-hand to judge.

Please email your entries to Please write your answer on the email (no attachments please). Please also provide your name, age, email address, Twitter name (if you have one), your postal address and contact telephone number. Only one entry per person is allowed.

Good luck!

  1. Its so hard as there are so many to choose from...I think it has to be when the councel man comes round, and Kev is found in bed with a resident,drinking beer, and got out naked. Bloody hilarious, so cleaverly written, the whole serise. Maybe you are God...

  2. way too many to choose but one has to be when kev tell derek the man goes to the doctors joke.ive got all 7 + the making on the hdd and just keep watching them,superb

  3. Has to be the Duran Duran tribute simply brilliant. Derek keep referring to himself as Duran Duran instead of Simon le bon and kev gets pissed off with him.

  4. I just love it when Derek can't say ventrilliquizem! And neither can Kevin. That is hilarious mate.
