Are Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant still friends?
It never made sense that the co-writer of The Office (Merchant) was not involved at all in the David Brent film (surely this was part of the franchise). The pair do not follow one another on Twitter, and any interview that Ricky Gervais does there is absolutely no mention of Stephen Merchant, and I have watched a lot of these interviews. What is up with them? Something has happened and it ain't that old chestnut of ‘scheduling’ issues.
