Trivia:
Amelia Bullmore who plays Sonja, travelled to Kiev/Kyiv to research Ukrainian accents. Originally it was hoped that Peter Serafinowicz, who plays Tex, would play Tomek, Sonja's boss in the café, but it was thought that the logistics of speaking/pretending to speak Ukrainian would be too complex.See more »

Errors in geography: Although Alan Partridge comes from Norwich in East Anglia, on occasion Steve Coogan's Manchester accent comes through in the character.See more »

Who is Alan Partridge?

Comedy as it's meant to be, 2 November 2001
Author: VictorianCushionCat from United Kingdom

It was much anticipated by us Partridge fans, Knowing Me Knowing You on both radio and television had been comedy gold. The Christmas Special saw Alan's Television career collapse. How could 'I'm Alan Partridge' possibly keep up with such high standards?

It did and a whole lot more. The hilarity of Alan's misguided belief that he is still a major player in the industry and the meaningless conversations with the hotel staff combine to make his series essential watching. And the indignity of his prolonged stay in a 'one night stop venue' Travel Tavern adds to the tragic hilarity of the series.

Steve Coogan delivers his finest work to date and is ably assisted by a cast whose strongest delivery is the varied reactions their characters display when in the company of the failed chatshow host.

Perhaps the ultimate magic of Alan Partridge is that to fans his barrowload of catchphrases and inane comments are never forgotten and are always liable to be joyfully relayed in the company of a fellow fan.

And to think there are people out there who still don't get the joke.

as Alan might say,

'who, who, who do you think you are?'
