Total Alan
26 March 2009 | by VictorianCushionCatSee all my reviews

Anglican Lives was shown just a few months after the end of Series Two of 'I'm Alan Partridge' It's basically a spoof 'south bank show' style look at the life and career of Alan Partridge.

It serves as, to date, a nice wrap-up to the painful but hilarious path of Partridge that included On the Hour, The Day Today, Knowing Me Knowing You and I'm Alan Partridge.

The show combines a pleasing mix of old footage and new interviews, including his 'supertalk' slots on radio Norwich, and a funny touch, is the pointless addition of questions from 'Digital Dave' The intervie is hardly 'hard hitting' as the main interview with Alan is conducted by the wet 'Ray Woolard' who is clearly under Alan's employ.

If you want to check this out and it's well worth it for Partridge fans then you'll find it on Disc Two of the 'I'm Alan Partridge' Series Two DVD.
