Following on from the acclaimed one-off comedy drama last year, Ricky Gervais presents a new six-part series about Derek Noakes, a tender, innocent man whose love for his job and the people he cares for in the retirement home where he works, shines through. In the first episode, a visit from the council sees Broadhill retirement home facing closure. Hannah, the home's manager rallies together her troops, best mates Derek, Dougie and Kev, and together they set to work raising their own funds for the home. A visit from the Meadway animal rescue centre and an outburst from Dougie helps to put smiles back on the residents' faces. Starring Karl Pilkington (as Karl Pilkington avec fetching Friar Tuck hair), Kerry Godliman and David Earl.
