9780007558230: Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa: Script (and Scrapped)

The official script for the box-office smash movie, featuring every ruddy word (and stage direction) of Alan’s seamless transformation from natural-born broadcaster into fully fledged and occasionally fully dressed hostage negotiator. Contains deleted scenes and an exclusive Foreword by Steve Coogan.

With a television career behind him and a much-coveted breakfast slot in his spiritual home, regional digital radio, there was only one place left for Alan Partridge to turn: Hollywood! Or rather, an Anglo-French funded co-production for the big screen.

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa sees Alan face his biggest challenge since he spent six months in a travel tavern, and is almost certainly the first time he has handled a loaded gun since he was a prime-time BBC2 presenter. When his beloved income-source North Norfolk Digital is taken over by a faceless media conglomerate, Alan’s inimitable instinct for self-preservation leads to a violent and bloody siege on the radio station by an unhinged, nay mentalist, DJ, and a hostage crisis for which there can be only one man with the chat to diffuse it …

Featuring a cast of old and new Partridge favourites, including Sidekick Simon, assistant Lynn and Michael the Geordie, Alpha Papa is proof that while the jury’s out on whether you can keep a good man down, it’s an outright fact that you can’t keep a good regional broadcaster off the airwaves.

Review:

Praise for the film Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa:

‘The funniest movie this year’ **** Independent

‘Smartly executed, endlessly quotable and machine-gun quick, this is one of the funniest films of 2013’ **** Total Film

‘Ruddy hilarious.’ **** Empire

‘Partridge has established himself as one of those great English cartoonlike characters… in the tradition of the comic supporting acts in Austen or Dickens.’ **** The Times

‘Extremely funny… It's all very English in its recognition of the mean smallness of so much of British life.’ Observer

‘Knowing and funny’ Guardian
