"Equidistant between chitchat and analysis"

As if the prospect of Alan Partridge returning to the BBC wasn't already exciting enough, the revelation that he'll be doing so as the presenter of a One Show parody is even better. The randomness of the magazine show format, the bizarre mixture of the serious and the silly, and the enforced and often awkward bonhomie between the presenters and their guests (and between the presenters themselves) couldn't suit Alan's character better. The proof will be in the pudding, of course, and filming has only just begun - but you have to feel it's another inspired decision on the part of Neil and Rob Gibbons (and Steve Coogan too).
