When famous DJ Alan Partridge's radio station is taken over by a new media conglomerate, it sets in motion a chain of events which see Alan having to work with the police to defuse a potentially violent siege.
Alan Partridge further cements his place as a British Institution
Steve Coogan's greatest creation continues to mature like a fine wine a full 25 years after his inception. Scissored Isle- one of the most polished pieces of comedy that Coogan has produced- sees the more elderly pompous Partridge stumble his way around the UK, attempting to explain the country's socioeconomic problem through his own warped lens.
The way Partridge flits between kowtowing to the upper-class estate owner and attempting to build 'street cred' with the disaffected teenagers is perfectly excruciating, especially with his wonderfully observed allusion to Ross Kemp. His meeting with the Mayor as he experiences his first ecstasy comedown is downright hilarious but is bettered by the outstanding scene where he gets locked in the warehouse and goes temporarily insane.
Some of Coogan's very best work, highly recommended.
