Oft-forgotten gems from the Alan Partridge canon

This bit from the lesser-mentioned Talking Books one-off has been stuck in my head this morning, there's so much going on in these two minutes. Tom Davis plays it perfectly, very well-observed and nicely understated to fit in with the comparatively serious tone of the entire thing. A more realistic and uncomfortable interpretation of what a Partridge fan might be like than Jed Maxwell.

I love this bit, even the editing is great (the camera returning to the audience).

Yes it's fantastic, a truly sophisticated bit of work. In the early Alan days just the stuff he's saying (bragging about his garage, "the history of fire" etc) would be the joke here, but in this case it's woven into a complex and satisfying bigger scene.

Like dogs in a washing machine

It is totally fan service, but it still makes me smile.

Relistening to the LA-centric Oasthouse episode. Len from Hunstanton's message about cowboys made me laugh way more than is healthy at my age.  I may have bust a rib.
