Really funny episode again. I think this has been the most consistent Partridge show he's ever done.

 

Wasn't there a theory that this guy is MIchaels (from IAP) brother? And when Alan asks his where he got the tooth badge he says 'from Michael'. 

 

 

Didn't he say it was from his "mate Michael"? I had to play it back as it was one of those double take moments...

I love all the references to the Oasthousiverse that crop up in this series. I reckon From the Oasthouse is one of the pinnacles of the current team’s work - way funnier than Nomad, for instance.

Bash your arse! Nomad is brilliant.

I wonder if they'll do another This Time. Partridge tends to do series formats in twos... KMKYWAP, I'm Alan Partridge, Mid Morning Matters, This Time.

But will it be different this time, for This Time, this time around?

Oasthouse is fantastic, just Alan and his wondering thoughts.

That latest Madeley is amazing and, surely, there can no longer be any doubt at all that Madeley is the Partridge inspiration? That said, he really seems to be becoming more an more Partridge as the years go by, almost as if he has read those comparisons and is now properly 'leaning' into the role.

 

This series of This Time never really hit peak Partridge for me for reasons I can't really put my finger on. There were endless brilliant moments but an awful lot of flat filler too - repeated Simon and Ruth gags for example and some genuinely poor moments (that Guardian journo sequence was a nadir - a recognisable actor phoning in a piss poor performance wrecked the gag from the onset).
