Matt Smith returns to TV for first time in four years in Alan Partridge role

Matt Smith made a surprise appearance on This Time With Alan Partridge, as his character took on the incompetent broadcaster.

The Doctor Who actor played a writer who had taken aim at Alan’s show, only to regret his decisions when Alan, played by Steve Coogan, started dropping references to a presenter Matt’s character was having an affair with.

‘You could be investigating things that really matter,’ Matt’s character urged Alan, with the broadcaster insisting: ‘My audience are more concerned about hand dryers and speed bumps.’

It was Matt’s first appearance on TV in four years, and his first since starring in The Crown as a young Prince Philip alongside Claire Foy’s Queen Elizabeth II.

Since 2017, when the series aired on Netflix, he’s appeared in a string of films, and has appeared in the play Lungs at the Old Vic.

Safe to say, fans were thrilled to see him back on the box, with one writing: ‘Was only brief, but was nice to see Matt Smith back on the telebox once again.’
