Summary

Broadcaster, writer, philanthroper and one of the first public figures to suggest high-visibility clothing for people manning temporary car parks, the public Alan Partridge is a cherished institution. 

But what of the unseen Alan? 

For the first time, this famously private man welcomes us into his home and audibly deshrouds himself for a fascinating series of podcasts. Over the course of 18 generously durated episodes, Partridge grants us full and unfettered access to his off-screen life (within reason). 

In exchange for a series of payments from Audible, he promises an access-all-areas pass to the nooks and crannies of his hinterland, to reveal a wiser, cleverer, more reflective Alan than many of his more vaunted peers have given him credit for. He then sends the resultant podcasts to Audible ensuring they meet the technical specifications laid down in the contract.

So Ruddy, bloody brave!

Another ruddy hilarious audiobook/podcast from Alan.
Hard to match the genius of ‘ I Partridge’ or ‘Nomad’ but I think He’s managed it with this one.

10 on 10. Let’s make love.

Hilarious. Cut the jingle

Great writing and acting. But that 20 minutes of jingle, that is a mistake. This book needs edited and that needs to be reduced by 90%.

It’s just ‘great audio’

Forget the one-liners and slapstick of the Ianucci years; ten years of the Gibbons Bros cannon from MMM onwards is the stuff for real FOPS and gives us the real Alan: a broadcasting colossus sure, but it’s in these episodes that his tragedy is fully and most scorchingly well rendered. Here we find Alan literally and metaphorically trapped in a loft of memories and lost hopes; a prison of his own making. Ultimately, he’s just a guy in QSPC, but in the autumn of his life searching for the possibility of redemption. But is he beyond it?

Good but overuse of shite intro music

some great bits to the book and always good to hear fresh coogan, deliberately overusing the savagely irritating "from the oasthouse" theme tune really detracted from my enjoyment and made me want to smash my phone to pieces whenever it came on.

I'm not eating tramp soup

Our Lord and Master has returned, contemptuously strutting the lines between blissful self-ignorance and the Partridgian need to have the last laugh.

'We need to talk about Alan' worked because we're familiar with the events as they actually happened and not his charitable recollection. Where the second fell short is the lack of reference - no matter how wonderful the story you're only getting the punchline and not the setup. Here at last, we're returning both and the Master is providing it all in a demented stream of consciousness that rewards long-time listeners with something quite special.

Prime Partridge

Best Partridge ever - podcast is the perfect Partridge medium, and every ep is golden. Addictive!

More Partridge Gold

Steve Coogan’s nuanced evolution and and examination of this petty pedantic man continues. Equal parts subtle wit and ridiculous committed stupidity, this is glorious. If you’re a fan of Partridge, you’ll love it.

Didn't work for me

I cn't think why I bought it, the sample wasn't very inspiring. If you like hearing a maundering, selfish and sarcastic monologue of self-pity, it might be just down your street. It's not even on the same planet as my sense of humour, so it'll have to go back.

Disappointing

Very few laughs to be had here compared to the brilliant "I, Partridge; WNTTAA".

Got to say I was averaging one laugh per episode which is a pretty poor strike rate.

Not vintage Alan at all. Not even up to the standard of Nomad to be honest.

Still, passes the time.
