I’m Alan Partridge – 1997 & 2002

The follow up to Knowing Me ,Knowing You sees Steve Coogan reprise his role as Alan Partridge, a failed TV Presenter.   I’m Alan Partridge ran for two series of six episodes first in 1997 and then in 2002.

In August 2017 the BBC announced that Alan Partridge would return for a one off series championing the case for Brexit.  No firm dates have yet been announced.

Summary

Series One (1997) 

Alan Partridge, a former host on Knowing Me, Knowing You… with Alan Partridge on BBC TV,

Alan has been dismissed from the BBC, partly for punching Chief Commissioning Editor Tony Hayers in the face with a stuffed partridge and partly because his programmes weren’t up to standard, delivering ever-declining ratings.

In series one, he is divorced from his wife Carol, lives in the Linton Travel Tavern and is reduced to working the graveyard shift on a local radio station in Norwich and desperately trying to get back on television in any capacity.

 Series Two (2002)

Following an off-screen mental breakdown — he has pulled himself up slightly, in that he now lives in a static caravan next to the dream house he is building, has a radio show in the evening, a military-based quiz show on digital television and has published his Autobiography.

Alan is a generally loathsome, narcissistic human being with very poor social skills and a largely empty personal life.
