When famous DJ Alan Partridge's radio station is taken over by a new media conglomerate, it sets in motion a chain of events which see Alan having to work with the police to defuse a potentially violent siege.
Lynn drives an old 1985 Austin Metro. In the second episode of I'm Alan Partridge (1997) she unsuccessfully tries to persuade Alan to trade in his Rover 800 for a much smaller and cheaper Rover Metro. Alan scornfully says he will not drive a "MiniMetro", which was the model's original name for the first two years of its production (eventually it was sold as the Rover Metro after the Austin brand became defunct). The model Lynn drives is from after the 'MiniMetro' became just 'Metro' but it's the same design.
I'll be asking, which is the worst monger? Fish, iron, rumour, or war?
When Alan first goes into the room with the hostages Jason Tresswell get up and speaks twice - once in the background and then again in a closeup scene.
The logo for Alan's radio station, North Norfolk Digital, joins those of the three other production companies in the pre-credits montage.
