Solid, consistent Partridge
31 January 2014 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

It was only watching the mostly OK Partridge movie recently that I found about this web series that Coogan also made. Although IMDb lists several seasons and a multitude of episodes, I was only able to find 12 episodes which does make up almost two and a half hours of material. The scenario is simple for the show, Partridge is now presenting on the digital radio station North Norfolk Digital and the ten minute episodes are made up of him on air and in front of the webcam. It is a simple idea but as we saw from the film, with Partridge it is usually the smaller character moments that get the biggest laughs.

With this series it is not the absolute best that Coogan has ever done with partridge but it is a fairly consistent and funny set of episodes because they frequently play to his strengths. As a character he is a great mix of warm insincerity, anger, intolerance, impatience, personality and poor social awareness. The show may not have too many big headline moments but it has lots of small cracks and tensions around Partridge, whether it be him wandering down an uncomfortably painful line of conversation or him clearly struggling with his own sense of inadequacy while at the same time being angered by it. He is a great character and when he is done well then he can work well in a movie or even just sitting in a simple room with a microphone, as indeed this series shows.

Coogan himself is great and I do love that although he has done well for himself in the US and in films, he has never trying to walk away from Partridge nor lose touch with what makes the character great (even if the film as a whole sort of did). The various supporting roles are pretty good. Tim Key is actually better in the film but here he is still pretty funny and he "awkwards" well next to Coogan. Duffy has a simpler role on the face of it (essentially she is a pretty face to allow Coogan to play a certain way) but she still does it well, playing along until she hits an awkward wall – Coogan gets the laughs but she often did as much of the work.

I'll make an effort to seek out if there are more of these episodes around or not because I did enjoy this series. It is simple and, in its simplicity it allows Alan to be Alan and more often than not this is engaging, funny, painful and awkward all in equally entertaining measures.
