Press Clippings

Paul Whitehouse's parody DJ Mike Smash emerges from Alan Partridge's shadow to present a compilation of Christmas hits. It's low budget - just the character on a radio studio set and the songs' videos. The clips come with spoof TOTP2-style captions but, sadly, they're half-hearted despite being penned by Whitehouse and regular co-writer David Cummings. On screen, though, Whitehouse transcends the will-this-do script.
