I'm Alan Partridge

Alan Attraction - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: When Alan serenades Jill, near the end of the song, the guitar player removes his hand from his guitar briefly but the guitar part continues to play (it's being synthesised as part of the keyboard's rhythm track). (00:19:10)

Alan Attraction - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene at Radio Norwich where Alan is speaking to the other DJ through the window, the Valentine's cards on the ledge keep changing position from shot to shot. (00:01:25)

Towering Alan - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Alan ejects the guest from his room for making a racist remark, the guest walks down the corridor towards a door. Watch as he reaches the door, he tries to open it but as it's a fake he just bangs into it. It's really funny. (00:26:20)

Brave Alan - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: After Dan says he has Director's beer coming out of his taps, Alan holds out his hands then lowers them. In the next shot his arms are outstretched again. (00:06:20)


A Room with an Alan - S1-E1

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the house section just before Alan makes an offer there's a shot of Lynn. To the left of the doorway behind her you can briefly see the shoulder of the second cameraman for the scene. Also visible are the camera cables through the door behind Lynn. (00:15:10)

Alan Attraction - S1-E2

Factual error: Alan takes out a member of his staff on a Valentine's Day trip. When he is in the car with her, there are some outside shots of them driving along. The problem is, on or around the 14th of February, there would be no leaves on the trees. (00:17:30)

A Room with an Alan - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Alan thrusts the cheese into Tony Hayers, you see a waiter come from the camera side and put a hand on him to pull him away. In the next shot of Alan, as he runs from the table, the waiter is now on the other side. (00:24:40)

Alan Attraction - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Alan and Jill are driving, the background shows they are driving in a straight line. In the next shot, the road behind them has a visible bend in it. (00:17:30)

Trivia: Given that the BBC are very much against product placement in their shows, its shocking the amount of placement that goes on in Alan Partridge. Its really in your face stuff. Ginsters pasties, BP petrol, Lexus cars, Flavia coffee machines, Directors bitter, Twix and Yorkie bars. In every episode the above are mentioned on numerous occastions. Not that I give a hoot about product placement myself, but am so surprised at how blatently obvious it is and yet the BBC have always been so against it.
