Oft-forgotten gems from the Alan Partridge canon

Same for me. I mentioned this in the Stratagem thread - for me, that 'pure' Partridge where there's no real narrative or theme is him at his best. The character is so detailed and deep at this point that you really don't need complicated setups - just give him a radio show or a podcast and let him speak. It makes sense within the world of Partridge, and offers the widest scope for his ideas and thoughts to spread out.

Quote from: Utter Shit on May 14, 2022, 08:59:13 AMIIRC they released episode 2 of the Oasthouse collection (the rambling one) a few days before the release. I can't remember off the top of my head but I guess that would have had a lockdown theme with solo rambling being one activity you could still do? I don't remember any pre-release episodes that weren't in the main release - if there was, I missed it and would love to hear it!

There aren't any covid references in the released version so I'm now wanting to know where this extra material is at

Pretty sure that FTOH was all recorded before the pandemic. Are you sure that "key workers" line wasn't from the last series of This Time?

Ferris

I remember the line too, I want to say he followed it up by hinting that being a nurse was easy? And that being a DJ didn't get the respect it should, or something.

BeardFaceMan

Was it from one of the trailers for Oasthouse? As I remember, there were 4 of them that had material not in the podcast.

I imagined him conflating Marc Bolan with James Bolam at that line.

The release of that chapter had a bit of specially recorded prologue where Partridge talked about the podcast, the pandemic, lockdown etc. There might be a link to it somewhere in this thread

Yes that sounds like it. I have in mind listening to it in about August 2020. I've looked for the files on my phone but can't find them. Might comb that thread.

This thread seems as good as any to highlight the picture used for Alan on Wikipedia:

I love the bit in Oasthouse where Partridge talks about how people hate posh rich people and it's basically just Coogan talking

And where he says Tom Cruise can't form human relationships" or something and then mutters under his breath "unless you're Simon Pegg" 

"Hearsay rocker Myleen Klass is from the county. So too is Gausden born Hannah Spearritt, former S Club 7 singer, and someone I'm proud to call a friend."

kalowski

I just relistened to the podcast section where he's running. It is a brilliant performance by Coogan. There's no jokes as such, but a totally knackered Partridge trying to talk and claim how good he is at running us just fantastic. "Think I'll just jump this fence."
In his new Asics hoodie so when the rain starts he stops running "after 3k, although I could have gone on for another 12."

Apache Productions is also a riff on "a pear tree" as in "a Partridge in a"
