Through his new friend Dan Moody, who owns Kitchen Planet, Alan is invited to make a presentation at the Colmans Mustard Bravery Awards. His efforts to impress Karen Colman by eating a large spoonful of mustard only increase her opinion of his mental state and she invites Sonja, but not Alan, back to her house.

Alan cuts the mustard!
19 August 2010 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Alan meets Dan Moody ( Stephen Mangan ), who shares his taste in everything. Dan arranges for Alan to give a speech at the Norfolk Bravery Awards. Hearing that Karen Colman ( Phoebe Nicholls ) of Colman's Mustard is present, he goes frantic trying to ingratiate himself in her presence. But Karen is more interested in Sonja, and invites her to an all-girl party, leaving Alan alone for the rest of the evening...

After two dull episodes, 'I'm Alan Partridge' was suddenly funny again. At one point Alan claims to have bought the rights to K-9 ( the robot dog from 'Dr.Who' ) at the height of his mental breakdown ( given the resurgence of interest in the Time Lord three years later, this was a pretty shrewd business move on his part ). Sonja's love of childish practical jokes such as putting fake eggs in bread rolls, whoopee cushions and false beards fortunately did not continue beyond this episode.

Dan and wife Ceri ( Jayne Robbins ) - obviously Welsh with a name like that - turn out to be swingers. Why does Alan pass up the chance to have his wicked way with her? She's a stunner ( not unlike Sarah Kennedy in her 'Game For A Laugh' days )!

Funniest moment - Alan trying to make Karen laugh by swallowing a mouthful of mustard.

Second funniest moment - unable to find Michael at the garage, Alan goes to his house. Michael says at the front door: "Sorry, but I can't sell you any petrol!". He won't let him in as he is watching a documentary about the Triads, but he graciously hands over a cup of beans with a sausage in it. "Like a savoury 99!", quips Alan.
