Later this week, Ricky Gervais’ latest comedy-drama, Derek airs on Channel 4. The sitcom follows a carer with learning difficulties who works in an old people’s home, and stars both Gervais together with right-hand man and fellow comedy genius, Karl Pilkington, who plays caretaker, Dougie.

Gervais told The Sun Newspaper,

‘I just want to do normal people with normal problems again. It is time to do that. I want to explore some themes I haven’t done before. I like getting close to real emotion — I have never been scared of that.’

Derek will be aired on 12th April, Channel 4.
