14 of Derek Shepherd’s McDreamiest Grey’s Anatomy moments

As the UK says a tearful farewell to brain surgeon Derek Shepherd, we take a moment to look back at his best bits..

Derek Shepherd, Meredith’s McDreamy, is no more. After 11 seasons, 10 years and more butterflies in our stomachs than we can count, Seattle’s dreamiest doctor is dead. 


There have been tears, anger and thousands upon thousands of signatures petitioning creator Shonda Rhimes to re-write his untimely demise as a dream or hallucination since the shocking episode aired in the US a couple of weeks ago, and tonight the UK got to bid their own reluctant farewell to Dr Shepherd. 


There’s no denying Grey’s Anatomy will never be the same again, and whether the show, and it’s distraught fans, can move past his death remains to be seen. In the meantime, the least we can do is take a few moments of silence to reflect on McDreamy’s dreamiest moments…
