Alan Partridge is at his best when he's in the doldrums - living in a Travel Tavern, binging on Toblerone, networking at a funeral. For almost three decades, we had watched Britain's least in-demand broadcaster fall further and further from grace - until, that is, he landed an unexpected guest-hosting gig on This Time. Since when did glossy BBC magazine shows start recruiting from North Norfolk Digital? Not only did Alan's appointment make frustratingly little sense, his freedom to interrupt the studied blandness of teatime TV with bombastic VTs failed to ring true. Nerdy rationality aside, something else was awry with Partridge 9.0 - namely, the fact that he was flying high. Despite his endless gaffes, he suddenly had status, and the hubris-fuelled nightmare that had hitherto been his career was abruptly ended. Of course, you cringed for him, but it turns out it's hard to feel affection for a Partridge on the up. Thankfully, judging by the closing episode's cliffhanger, Norwich's finest seems to have blown his chance at the big time once again.

Greg James snubs One Show because of Alan Partridge

The BBC Radio 1 DJ admitted Steve Coogan's iconic comedy character - a hapless TV presenter totally lacking in self awareness - was such a "p**s take" of the Beeb's tea time magazine show during his most recent series that he still can't bring himself to even accept a guest spot on the programme because now the lines are so blurred.

Alan Partridge writers won't rule out series two

And they respond to Piers Morgan's rant.

Joe Anderton and Morgan Jeffrey, Digital Spy, 9th April 2019

Quite accountably, in the less than loved This Time With Alan Partridge, they saved the very worst for last. I'd retained hopes for this, and some of the format worked winningly, but as soon as his co-host, the wonderful Susannah Fielding, walked off set at the very start, it fell apart: Alan was just allowed to get nasty, which was never, ever, the point. I'd love to see Alan return. Just not with those writers.
