    If it's a British person belittling North Americans I'm well sorted

    All of series two of Mid Morning Matters is on Now TV if you're so inclined. And starts on Sky Atlantic tonight.

    Or just steal it like everybody else of course.

    Woohoo, so I can steal it? Thanks Neilka

    I was just going to go on Now TV but thank Neilka! I'll just rob it instead.

    Top lad.

    Do as you will but know that every download deprives Alan of one pipe of Pringles.

    Just so I know which sites to avoid, where would one pick up the yarr version of this nowadays?

    Watching through for the second time, every line and little nuance in the delivery, nothing touches it.
    Can't get enough of the delicious little grimace he pulls each time he leans into the camera when fading Enya/UB40/Alan Parsons up.

    It's just so brilliantly written and I'm amazed that they are still producing brilliant material for a character that has been around for 25 years.

    Also worth mentioning how good his supporting cast has been - Tim Key is fantastic and the guests are pretty much always spot on.

    Alan Partridge: Nomad
    Hardback
    20 Oct 2016

    In ALAN PARTRIDGE: NOMAD, Alan dons his boots, windcheater and scarf and embarks on an odyssey through a place he once knew - it's called Britain - intent on completing a journey of immense personal significance. Diarising his ramble in the form of a 'journey journal', Alan details the people and places he encounters, ruminates on matters large and small and, on a final leg fraught with danger, becomes - not a man (because he was one to start off with) - but a better, more inspiring example of a man. This deeply personal book is divided into chapters and has a colour photograph on the front cover. It is deeply personal. Through witty vignettes, heavy essays and nod-inducing pieces of wisdom, Alan shines a light on the nooks of the nation and the crannies of himself, making this a biography that biographs the biographer while also biographing bits of Britain.

    About the Author
    Alan Partridge presents Mid Morning Matters on North Norfolk Digital. Broadcaster, writer, motivational speaker, sports fan, thought-leader, businessman and consummate professional, Alan enjoys bitter shandy, shandied lager, high-end knitwear and personal success. He is currently doing very well.

    There better be an audio book.
  • Deleted user 17 August 2016 22:19:58
    Given the outrageous success commercially and critically, I can't imagine there won't be. Plus Coogan isn't having coke orgies nowadays so has spare time

    Alan Partridge: What I've Learned

    As Steve Coogan turns 50, Norfolk's finest shares his life lessons
    (edit: just spotted this is from last year, deal with it)
    My greatest fear? Being at a charity event and everyone in a room suddenly having white eyes and robotic voices. I turn and run but they fire lasers at me from their hands and mouths. Somehow, I dodge the beams and find cover behind a cabinet, but I know I don't have long. With the demonic zombies stumbling towards me, I make my move, sprinting towards the wall and diving headlong into an air duct. Hours later, I have escaped and alerted the Army. But when we return to the charity event, it is a wasteland. Nothing has been spared and as I turn to leave, I glimpse a sickening sight. Amid the ashes is a tiny hand still clutching a teddy bear. A horrible thought and I only hope none of it ever comes to pass.

    @Trowel

     I've done more charity raffles for Africans than they've had hot dinners.

    Is a corker.

    Aha! The joke's on Alan, because Noel's done corporate vids too (I remember one on warehouse safety he did for Sainsbury's about not climbing on the shelves).

    So, needles to say, Noel had the last laugh.

    Oh it still works. So far....


    Lovely stuff
  • Deleted user 20 October 2016 21:25:20
    Nice. I bought* the CD* audiobook version of "I, Partridge" and it's a thing of beauty. Partridge reading his own autobiography to you obviously adds at least one additional layer of comedy. Probably more.

    *Yeah, I know, I'm old-school ... getting my stuff on physical media and actually paying for it? :rolleyes:

    I downloaded it from audible, one of the greatest bits of comedy I've heard.
    Downloaded 'nomad' this morning, halfway through and it's just as good.

    Lovely stuff.

    Listened to about 40 minutes of it on the way to work this morning and yeah it's great.

    I'm driving to Dundee in my bare feet on Sunday so I am going to have a listen. Finally I sign up to Audible
