Who stars in This Time with Alan Partridge?

It goes without saying that Partridge is played by Steve Coogan, the mastermind behind the character which has stood the test of time for over 30 years. In This Time with Alan Partridge, he’s joined by co-host Jennie Gresham, played by Susannah Fielding (Life, The Great Indoors)

Jennie has the patience of a saint. For the most part, her face betrays no signs of the despair we know she feels during Partridge’s self-indulgent rants, or when he laughs at his own misguided jokes. She sticks to the script and remains perfectly polished, and as the audience, we veer between sympathy (how can you put up with this) to incredulity (why would you put up with this).

Alongside Coogan and Fielding, the series also stars Lolly Adefope (who we've seen recently in Ghosts) as the quick witted, ‘no time for bullshit’ reporter Ruth Duggan. Comedian and screenwriter Tim Key plays inept co-star Simon Denton, and Partridge alumni Felicity Montagu plays Alan’s long-suffering assistant. In series two, Natasia Demetriou joins as flirtatious makeup artist Tiff.

What happens in This Time with Alan Partridge?

Coogan’s Partridge, heavily inspired by Piers Morgan according to all accounts, is obnoxious and self-involved, ready with a social commentary that would make your nan cringe. If it’s classic Partridge that you want, you won’t be disappointed.

Some highlights from season one include when Alan demonstrates CPR and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation using a mannequin. In the same episode, he meets an Irish farmer who performs a medley of three songs, including two Republican anthems.

Alan’s take on the Me Too movement is also noteworthy. In season two, stand out moments include Alan’s physical fight with a ventriloquist, his interview with a Guardian journalist, and when Alan loses an opportunity to interview Princess Anne.
