The change of the thread title makes my earlier post being off topic.
Still a little bit off topic: The worst guest performance was the one by the manager of the mall in The Longest Night. A throwback to the 70s...instead of playing it straight and rely on the good script he tries to be "funny" and gets it all wrong. A shame because otherwise the episode is great.
Agreed. Also the majority of the female characters in the early series are terribly wooden and one dimensional.

...then here are mine for Alan Partridge ("Knowing..." and "I'm..."):
-The boxing promoter in KMKYWAP who got cleared from murder charges
-Kevil Eldon's character
-Dan Moody (Steve Mangan)
-Jed "The Mentalist" Maxwell
-Peter Baynham's character ("Dr No...Vocal Chords")
Although I alternate between Baynham
and the pupeteer in KMKYWAP with his "Cheeky Monkey"
All five/six were great!
I second this: I love 'Ray Beesley and Cheeky Monkey' and Kevin Eldon's performance in IAP is just pure class.
