For Alan Partridge fans like myself, new material has been a long time coming. Having been delighted to hear of a new series, I did have doubts that the exceedingly high standards of previous programmes would be maintained. Delighted to say that I was not disappointed, especially as it all takes place in a brand new setting (North Norfolk Digital) as Alan's broadcasting career continues its downward spiral. The fact that all the episodes are filmed in a small radio studio means that AP is constantly on camera and Steve Coogan's brilliant acting ensures that every quirk and trait is brilliantly delivered. The writing is superb too, and there are plenty of new classic Partridge lines to savour. No Alan Partridge would be complete without cringe or embarrassment and this series has plenty of both. Well done Steve Coogan and Armando Iannucci for not only re-visiting an extremely popular comedy character but also for coming up trumps. Roll on a second series!
