Filmed in May 2023, the episode, which has been praised by critics, confronted the reality of Derek’s struggles and the effect on those around him in never-before-seen images and footage. 

Not Without Some Criticisms

However some criticised Kate amid the documentary’s release – leading to some of her TV pals coming to her defense.  

Praising Kate on the documentary, Kate’s former GMB colleague Piers Morgan wrote on X: ‘The final @kategarraway film about her beloved Derek was heart-breaking, inspiring, and utterly maddening. 

‘Our care system is so broken, yet staffed by so many wonderful people. Let Derek’s legacy be a wholesale reformation of the way we treat our sick/elderly. RIP Derek.’ 

Trolls Came at Kate Garraway

However, one viewer replied: ‘Very sad Piers and very harrowing, but many families have had to go through the same and do not have the platform or exposure to speak out. Let this fella RIP and Kate hopefully will find peace and happiness in the future.’

Piers React

Hitting back, Piers then pointed out: ‘The whole point of the film was to shine a light on the care system, and help so many others suffering from its failures. 

‘Kate used her profile to magnificently powerful effect and deserves our gratitude not sniping. She’s a brilliant woman who’s been through 4yrs of utter hell.’
