And on that festive bombshell...
26 December 2005 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Quite how Alan Partridge managed to wangle the BBC into giving him his own Xmas special after murdering Forbes McAllister in his last TV appearance is a mystery. But since disaster clings to his heels and everything he touches becomes a shambles he is always worth watching to see his ever-increasing denial of the trouble he is in.

In this Xmas special he has created a mock-up of his very own living room in the TV studio. He tries to create a cozy Xmas atmosphere with a large tree, a crackling log fire and frequent visits to Fanny Thomas, a whorish TV chef cooking up Xmas snacks in his kitchen. His guests are a typically incongruous lot consisting of a Christian Zealot, Chief Commissioning Editor of BBC Programs (and Alan's arch-Nemesis) Tony Hayers and a pro-golfer who's career was robbed from him when he was struck by lightning. Also on the guest-list a car-dealer from a local Rover showroom dressed up as Santa who uses Alan to shamelessly plug his cars, which is illegal on the BBC.

As you probably know, Alan is notorious for insulting his guests and is frequently intimidated by anyone who is not completely normal. There is no shortage of his loathsome personality and it leads to some harsh confrontations between him and the interviewees. But it's all hilarious.

Since I only ever saw this for the first time yesterday I haven't been able to make an Xmas tradition of it but I will from now. It's brilliant!
