Cemetery Junction Q&A with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant

Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais

This week we at WhatDVD.Net travelled down to London, to the Soho Hotel, for a Q&A with Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais ahead of the DVD and Blu-Ray release of their feature film on August 30th, Cemetery Junction.

As is the case with most film screenings and Q&A sessions, everyone was liberally liquored up before hand to ensure that people were in the right spirits to ask questions, and that any answers given were taken in the right way. Ricky and Stephen even found the time to sign some pictures and DVDs that were left on their table (despite the explicit nature of one of the requests, which you’ll hear in the podcast).

During the Q&A the pair were asked the usual questions of what sorts of films inspired them to make Cemetery Junction and what projects would they be working on again, as well as the not so usual questions of whether Ricky receiving a bike for his birthday as a child was something of an extravagant present for someone living in the part of Reading where he resided. As it turned out it would have been extravagant, had he received one, but the person asking the question was in error.

Have a listen to the podcast where you’ll hear every question and answer, and check back here soon for the review of Cemetery Junction on Blu-Ray.

Darren has enjoyed an interest in film for many years, studying the subject at Newport Film School where he worked on the film ‘Cop on the Edge IX: Prelude to Justice‘ in a directing and acting capacity. The official site can be enjoyed here. Darren setup WhatDVD.Net in 2003 to further his love of films and to write passionately about the movies he enjoys, and about those that he doesn’t.

Although his day-to-day activities mean that he now has less time to review movies than he would ideally prefer, he still tries to review new releases, and DVDs from his extensive collection, whenever possible.
