I'm Alan Partridge 10.00pm BBC2
Lovely Steve Coogan: he never overstays his television welcome and, when he does appear, you can always expect quality. Here he revives Alan Partridge, previously of the spoof chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You, in a sort of comic documentary series.
Partridge is a Radio Norwich DJ and desperate for his TV show to be recommissioned. He has driving gloves and the clothes your father wears; he sings Killer Queen to himself; has a dry-skin problem; would vote Raving Tory and has absolutely no social graces: "I've been working like a Japanese prisoner of war," he quips, obliviously.
Partridge is the sort of man you'd cross the road to point at. Television needs him.
