Did You Know?


This episode was written on the basis that Robert De Niro had tentatively expressed interest in appearing in the series, but when filming had started the producers had not actually pinned him down to a filming date. During one scene Ricky Gervais jokingly did a couple of takes saying de Niro's name with a coffee cup in front of his face so that they could dub different actors' names in if necessary. See more »


Whilst waiting for Andy, Darren asks Robert De Niro if he'd ever driven a Taxi for real, to which he replies no. Actually Robert De Niro drove a real taxi for a month in preparation for 'Taxi Driver'. See more »

Jonathan Ross

A Golden Globe Winning series; Extras is another one of Ricky's gem that came out from his pot and just as it predecessor it stands out alone on witty humor, practicality awareness and no nonsense sequences that glues this majestic series. Ricky Gervais keeps it true and to-the-ground one of the main reasons why it works everytime when he draws the curtains.

The season ended up in an intense point that proves Ricky Gervais's brilliant writing skills and keen towards the art on handling the characters revolving around its amusing world. The development towards his career is projected swiftly not to make look like all hoax but the more interesting and intellectual arc created is on his relation with Ashley Jensen that hopefully will turn out to be entertaining and delight to watch.

The relation between Ricky Gervais and Ashley Jensen has always been in question but never got to a certain answer or point and it was a smarter way to approach this in a mild way especially the riddles that she used to ask him and on humor side; Stephen Merchant has got it all covered.
