This Time…with Alan Par­tridge (BBC One)

RTÉ Guide - - Feature -

It has been 15 years since Alan Par­tridge (Steve Coogan) last graced the BBC (in the mean­time, there was a film, a book and a few shows on Sky). Now Nor­wich’s finest has been handed an ‘un­likely life­line’ as co-host of This Time, a mag­a­zine-style TV show that sounds like an­other real-life BBC show. But for the broad­caster, this is his mo­ment, “the per­fect fit for a man whose broad­cast­ing style has been de­scribed as ‘equidis­tant be­tween chitchat and anal­y­sis.’” With so many fish in the bar­rel, there will be no short­age of tar­gets, with one episode de­voted to #MeToo. Pre­pare to hold your sides, they just might split.
