|Steve Coogan writes and stars in six episodes each featuring a different comic creation in this BBC series. Based in the town of Ottle, Coogan portrays a range of typical British eccentrics. Amongst those featured are Ernest Moss--a handyman who becomes a hero--and Tim Fleck--curator of the world's dullest museum--plus desperate salesman Gareth Cheeseman and one of Coogan's most popular characters, Paul Calf. The six 30-minute episodes of Coogan's Run, originally broadcast in 1995, serve as a reminder that there's more to Steve Coogan than just Alan Partridge. Most Partridge-like here is the horrendous Gareth Cheeseman, the Ford Probe-driving sales rep in "Dearth of a Salesman", whose empty life unravels as spectacularly as his Norwich-based counterpart. Familiar from Coogan's stage act are handyman Ernest Moss, here accompanied by John ("Eccles Cakes!") Thomson, and Paul and Pauline Calf, whose "Get Calf" is the series highlight. Paired with cowriter Patrick Marber in "Natural Born Quizzers", Coogan is a quiz nerd bent on revenge; in "Thursday Night Fever" saddo DJ Mike Crystal finds empowerment in a brash alter ego; while "The Curator" heads towards the spoof-horror territory later served up so disappointingly in Dr Terrible's House of Horrible.|
