Patchy - for completists only
10 August 2013 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I love the Alan Partridge series, but this was, well, patchy.

There are some good lines in it, but some elements are overplayed, e.g. the robot interviewer (Digital Dave), and "real life" interviewer Ray Woolard, who is clearly out of his depth and being manipulated by Partridge. There *are* a few laughs here, but not many compared to "Knowing Me, Knowing You", or "I'm Alan Partridge".

Also included are clips from Partridge's "Ramble in the Countryside", an attempt by Alan to show himself off as some kind of rural gentleman. (Presumably to help placate the farmers he annoyed on his radio show.)

The feature includes some clips from other Alan Partridge enterprises (including "The Day Today"), but it fails to impress overall.
