Alan is the conceited, petty and anal comic creation of Steve Coogan, who gets disastrously involved in a siege at the North Norfolk radio station where he is a DJ. Wonderfully cringe-making and packed with clever gags.

Director: Declan Lowney
Cast: Steve Coogan, Colm Meaney, Felicity Montagu, Simon Greenall, Tim Key, Karl Theobald.
