Sidekick Simon breaks some bad news to Alan - he confirms he is interviewing for another job.

Further details

In an unusually self-deprecating move, Alan opens the show by announcing himself “Berk of the Week”. It’s especially odd considering the position is usually reserved for the Council for their ongoing plans to pedestrianise the city centre.

Things go from bad to worse, as later Sidekick Simon breaks some bad news to Alan and confirms he is interviewing for another job, leaving a sullen Alan to present the show solo.

Series two of the faultless Mid Morning Matters concludes. Series one's finale was pitched perfectly and so is this, with trouble brewing on the home front between Alan and Angela, and then at work with Sidekick Simon, who could be about to betray Alan in the most grievous manner. As one might expect, Alan's inner turmoil spills out into "North Norfolk's best music mix". Coogan and co hit a perfectly calibrated sweet spot where poignant meets snortingly funny.
