    Yep the beeb are being as annoying with partridge as HBO is with Game of Thrones (although at least we have a date for GOT now).

    I've seen Feb mentioned in articles but no exact date yet :(

    Let's just hope Phil and the Queen don't die, there'll be wall to wall mawkish coverage and Partridge shunted off into the horizon.

    Or Alan's given the chance to commentate on the funeral. Alongside Bill Oddie.

    I'm glad Lynn's in it. I had feared she might be forgotten about, because her life is literally not worth insuring.

    The book Nomad describes him dying in the events at the end of Alpha Papa, but I don't recall this :hmm:

    Calamity1971 If Mr Peanut says It's okay, then it is.

    It ended with him on a pier with a seagull taking his spirit away :D he thought he was dying, but he wasn't.

    Ah-ha! Cannot WAIT for this, I piss at Partridge. Just listened to I, Partridge, We Need To Talk About Alan - for the third time. It is sublimely funny, in a way that makes you giggle like a loon on public transport.

    :thumbs:

    Regarding Michael...

    I think it was Alans radio sidekick Simon that was said to be in the new series, back when it was first announced.

    I was listening to it walking through the woods the other week, and a bit where he talked about the family he went to stay with when his mum and dad were on holiday done me.
    He said the dad was an asthmatic, but what he lacked in breathing quietly he more than made up for in parental responsibility.
    I laughed out loud just as I was passing a couple.
    Another bit about exhuming and duffing up his dad's corpse had a similar effect too.

    I remember both bits!! :D

    I've had issues with Steve Coogan in the past, back when he was a lady-lovin' drunkard, but I cannot take away from the fact he is scarily close to comedy genius.

    "I bade farewell to the Linton Travel Tavern in the only way I knew. By taking my luggage to the car, and paying my outstanding balance...with a credit card."

    On MOTD last night, at half time, Lineker paid tribute to the sports presenter he tries to model himself on.
