'Derek' returns for its second series one year after the events of the first. Ricky Gervais returns as the quirky care home caretaker Derek, along with many familiar faces. Kev, Dougie and Hannah are still the same eccentric characters and there are plenty of new ones featuring in this series. New residents to the care home will bring new challenges and the young Vicky is now a full-time resident.

Critic Reviews for Derek Season 2

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

Though "Derek" still has moments of sweetness, much of the romance from its initial go-round has vanished, replaced by crude jokes.

Unfortunately, Derek is less comedy and more tragedy, the biggest tragedy being Gervais's flailing attempt at a follow-up to earlier successes.

The new series of Derek opens with brilliant comic scenes about spiders, electrocution and sex between clowns and chimps but, by the end of the half hour, viewers just might be quietly weeping.

Leave it to Derek to make grabbing a used pregnancy test from the garbage, holding it up and announcing someone else's pregnancy a heartwarming bit of TV.

Settling back into Derek after so much time away was like pulling on one of Derek's brightly-coloured sweaters: it's warm and comfortable and you never want to take it off again.

An episode of The Office or Extras would be wasted on Derek; he's completely happy when he's watching an online video of little piggies and bunnies doing cute things. Derek has all the creative ambition of one of those videos.

With how much of [Gervais] he is visibly investing in this show, it will still be worth watching every potentially creaky moment of it.

Derek is a poignant and funny character sketch.

There's certainly a good show here... Where better to mine pathos than a financially struggling old people's home?
