Alexa goes full Partridge with new commands

An Alan Partridge/Alexa mash up might sound like an idea from Alpha Papa’s infamous dictaphone, but Alexa has learned a bunch of new Easter Eggs from the king of North Norfolk radio.

In celebration of the new series on BBC, you can now ask Alexa for a myriad of Partridge-related tidbits.

Just ask “Alexa, give me an Alan Partridge quote” and you’ll get a series of gems.

We’re not going to ruin the surprises – as you can tell a fan has chosen the responses…but let’s just say that “if you’ve just joined us we were talking about who is the best Lord? It’s between the Lord of the Rings, Dance, or Flies” is one of the them.

You can also ask “Alexa, who is the best lord?”.

And of course, Alexa can go through the contents of Alan’s dictaphone. Just say You can also hear the synopsis for a number of Alan’s unreleased works, just ask “Alexa, give me an Alan Partridge TV pitch.”

You'll get the full works including:

  • “A detective series based in Norwich called Swallow. Swallow is a detective who tackles vandalism. Bit of a maverick, not afraid to break the law if he thinks it’s necessary.”
  • “Inner-city Sumo”
  • “Alan Attack – like the cook report but with a more slapstick approach.”
  • “Youth hostelling with…” well, you know the rest.

If you’re the kind of person who loves reeling off a few choice Partridge quotes then this is certainly the Alexa Easter Egg for you.
