Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa 15 rating

It’s Alan’s finest hour, as the veteran DJ for North Norfolk Digital (Steve Coogan) is called into action to mediate a hostage situation following a siege.

Comedy 2013 90 mins

Director: Declan Lowney


Alan Partidge’s long-awaited film debut, after twenty years of cult success on TV and radio, finds the North Norfolk Digital DJ mediating a hostage situation and siege crisis after a disgruntled colleague takes arms against his employers. Can Partridge rise to the occasion and become a local hero in the process?

The writing talents of Armando Iannucci (In the Loop) and the assured direction of Declan Lowney (Father Ted) ensure that Steve Coogan’s genius comic creation, the deluded former sports broadcaster and TV personality now reduced to local radio, makes a fittingly uproarious translation to the big screen.
