Ricky Gervais may be bringing 'The Ricky Gervais Show' to an end, but it's not without a sad look back.
“I’m incredibly fond and proud of 'The Ricky Gervais Show'. What started out as a bit of a laugh and a little experiment with a new-fangled thing called ‘podcasting’ slowly turned into a global cult – but without all the brainwashing and stuff.”
He said of that decision: "Why have I knocked it on the head? Well, apart from the fact that I have a very short attention span, we actually made more episodes of 'The Ricky Gervais Show' than anything else I've ever done. I also think we used all the best bits and I wouldn't want the quality to go down.
"I was thinking of recording brand new audio at one time but then I realised that it wouldn't be the same."
In better news for Gervais's fans, he's also announced the return of his best-loved character, David Brent, in a series of YouTube specials.
The Ricky Gervais Show Season 3 and Season 1 to 3 Boxset out on DVD today - Monday 13 May. Watch our clip below...
