Partridge-fanciers’ hearts will leap as Norfolk’s own man of steel makes his big-screen debut. Alpha Papa sees DJ Alan flung from the high-stakes arena of local radio to the life-or-death straits of an armed hostage crisis.
When an axed fellow DJ goes postal, Alan must find his inner action hero in a Terry-Wogan-meets-Steven-Seagal scenario. Wisely, Coogan, Iannucci and co have opted for the suitably sitcom-like setting of a radio station. And there’s still time for anecdotes about motorway service stations and supermarket checkouts amid the guts and glory.
