Steve Coogan, Tracey Ullman, French & Saunders – the list of comedy legends director Dominic Brigstocke has worked with was too long to talk about in the time we had, but the list is long. Instead, he talks about one of the greatest comedy characters ever created, Alan Partridge and his creators Steve Coogan and Armando Iannucci and the two series that he directed. He also sheds light on putting together Horrible Histories, and working with Tracey Ullman and her many characters, and directing Dawn French as Yoda.
