Steve Coogan returns in his iconic role winning him the BAFTA for Best Male Performance in a Comedy. 'Scissored Isle' also won the International Emmy for Best Comedy. Following a controversial on-air incident, Alan attempts to make amends. Leaving behind his comfortable existence and vast detached house, Alan takes a journey of redemption. He journeys into an unreported Britain inhabited by the very people he had offended to ask whether, in this once united kingdom, a 'schasm' has formed - a schism or chasm, between the haves and the have-nots (or haven'ts). From supermarket staff to payday lenders, disaffected street gangs to food scavenging 'freegans', Alan pledges to move among them; to understand them; to see the world through their eyes. And - god willing - along the way become a better citizen, a better man and a better, more sought-after broadcaster.
- Alan Partridge's Scissored Isle review by KF
A half hearted attempt to reprise the Alan Partridge character but it doesn't work. Steve Coogan just doesn't put the same energy into the character that he once did and the dialogue and situations are plainly lacking. It'll bore you.
