Steve Coogan has appeared on our screens, both big and small, in many guises over the years, but absolutely nothing the comedian has created comes close to Alan Partridge - one-time chat show host, erstwhile radio broadcaster, perennial ABBA aficianado and now star of his own cinematic extravaganza.
Coogan again teams up with the hugely talented writing partners Armando Iannucci (The Thick of It, In The Loop, Veep), Patrick Marber and Peter Baynham, together with Neil and Rob Gibbons - all of whom have written for Partridge in the past - with TV comedy veteran Declan Lowney (Father Ted, Little Britain) handling directorial duties.
Plot-wise, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa sees the staff of North Norfolk Digital radio under siege, when disgruntled fellow DJ Colm Meaney is unceremoniously fired during a corporate takeover, and points the finger of blame firmly at Alan. As a result, Partridge finds himself at the business end of a shotgun and chief negotiator in the whole ridiculous affair.
With a cast that includes Sean Pertwee, Felicity Montagu and a host of Britain's Finest, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa promises great things, and by the looks of this full trailer, it just might deliver. Check it out below:
