Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan), a former TV personality, is now a DJ at North Norfolk Digital Radio. Multinational media giant Gordale Media takes over and decides to revamp the station, calling it Shape, and in the process firing the late night DJ, Pat (Colm Meaney). Pat snaps and brings a rife to Shape's launch party and goes on a rampage, taking the employees hostage at the station.
Pat regards Alan as his closest ally at the station, so he chooses him to go outside the building to negotiate with police. What Pat doesn't know is that Alan is the one responsible for Pat having been fired in the first place, which is one piece of information Alan would like to keep quiet.
