Alan Partridge completed a famous return to Freeview TV when he swooped in to save the day on fictional BBC show This Time.

Covering for the seriously ill John Baskell – who later died – Alan earned himself another shot at the big time, co-presenting the show alongside Susannah Fielding.

With five episodes down we now head into episode 6 of This Time with Alan Partridge. But is episode 6 the last in the series? And what time does it air?

Alan Partridge This Time episode 6: Is it on tonight?

Yes!

Episode 6 of This Time with Alan Partridge series will air tonight (Monday, April 1st).

Titled This Time, the show will broadcast on BBC One at 9:30 pm.

Is the last episode?

Yes!

Unfortunately, this is the last episode of the series.

However, you can catch up with the entire season on the official BBC media player, BBC iPlayer.

This Time With Alan Partridge – about!

The full title of the series is This Time With Alan Partridge and will be shot in a sort of magazine show format.

Each half-hour episode will feature investigative reports, interviews and small featurettes with consumer affairs at the top of big Al’s priority list.

Perhaps the episode that everyone is most looking forward is when Alan attempts to tackle the Me Too campaign. As always, in his own unique, cringeworthy and blunderous manner.

Steve Coogan told WTF with Marc Maron:

Me Too – there’s a whole episode about that. That’s such a difficult topic for anyone to talk about for anyone to say anything about, but if you’re doing a character it weirdly gives you this licence to. You can get things wrong in a big way and it’s fine because it’s him doing it.

Alan Partridge and friends

Alan will be joined by a few familiar faces to help present what is rumoured to follow a similar format to the BBC’s One Show.

Those who enjoy Alan’s radio show, Mid Morning Matters, will be happy to see Sidekick Simon (Tim Key) in action as a co-host.

Actress Susannah Field will play fellow co-host Jennie Gresham.
