Film Review: Special Correspondents, Netflix

It says Film Review above so it must be a film. There is something not quite right about watching Special Correspondents on a laptop (in bed, if you want to know). Ricky Gervais chose to go with Netflix rather than a cinema release but I’m not sure if it is the right decision. Having said that, Special Correspondents is a great TV movie.

Ricky Gervais has talked about how he went from being a fan of David Bowie to being a friend.

News: Ricky Gervais David Bowie Tribute

Always save your correspondence. I learnt that when Ricky Gervais became a global superstar. Back in 1998 I was working for Time Out and received a neat typewritten letter from Gervais asking politely if I would review his first-ever TV pilot. It was a one-off for C4's Comedy Lab strand called Golden Years. In it Gervais played a Bowie-obsessed office worker who dreams of rock stardom. I think I gave the programme a reasonable review but in one of my annual purges I threw the letter away.
