Eggheads (with Sideburns) Competition

Well, we’ve teased about it on Twitter and today we’re launching a new competition – Eggheads (with sideburns): The Ultimate Derek Quiz – giving Derek fans the chance to win one of ten limited edition Derek prints from Posteritty, all of which are signed by Derek’s writer, director and star actor, Ricky Gervais!

The new design from Posteritty fantastically captures the essence of the character that has stolen the hearts of the nation so we’re giving you the chance to have something that money can’t buy – a signed copy. To see more fantastic minimalist art from Posteritty, visit and check out their entire collection of specialist Ricky Gervais prints.

10 prints to be won - all signed by Ricky Gervais

So how do you win? Well, Derek Series One has aired in the UK, not once, but twice, and is still available to watch on 4OD, so we think the fans should be able to answer some trivia questions to win these prizes. I could have written some questions myself, but I thought I’d ask somebody more informed. Thankfully he agreed so we have ten questions for you to answer written by Ricky Gervais. Ricky also kindly agreed to design (hand-craft) the “Eggheads (with sideburns)” logo. He put so much effort into it, I think you should all tweet him some kind words for his efforts!

How to enter:

To enter the competition, you must answer the 10 multiple choice questions (below) correctly, follow @DerekTVShow on Twitter and tweet your answers with the hashtag #EggheadsWithSideburns, in the following format:
