When famous DJ Alan Partridge's radio station is taken over by a new media conglomerate, it sets in motion a chain of events which see Alan having to work with the police to defuse a potentially violent siege.
Radio DJ Alan Partridge is facing uncertain times with his radio station being taken over by a corporate conglomerate. He makes things worse when he talks down a colleague after a promise to talk him up. The colleague handles things badly and takes the radio station into his own hands, literally, by taking them all hostage. Envisioning all his action heroes in his head, Alan is going to save the day by becoming a go-between for the Scotland Yard. His method though will put himself and others in harm's way because Alan Partridge just can't keep his mouth shut.Written by
The North Norfolk Digital/Shape office was filmed at Brook House in Mitcham, London. In the school where the police are doing the investigation, there is an aerial photo on the wall, this is of that area of Mitcham, although rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise. The larger map next to it is of Norwich. See more »
The Chief Constable has a lot more medal ribbons on her uniform than is usual for British police officers. Although ones who are ex-military are entitled to wear medals earned during their previous service, the amount she has still isn't credible, especially for someone who looks so young. See more »

Yes, Pat, is it bizarre. It is, and was, a failed escape attempt. A sort of, 'Shit-Shank Redemption', if you will.

I went to see this with some friends on the day it came out. As a Partridge fan you will not be disappointed. The film contains all the best characters from the TV Series and Steve Coogan's brilliance as Alan just made the film so funny. There are constant one liners, looks, expressions, silly voices almost every minute. Everyone in the cinema was laughing out loud throughout the full 90 minutes.
There is also a great sound track and lots of familiar tunes and the scene during the credits will have you laughing throughout.
Excellent film go and see it even if you are not a Alan Partridge/Steve Coogan fan because it is a generally funny film.
