Holed up in the Linton Travel Tavern with no work on the horizon, boredom becomes Alan Partridge's greatest enemy. After systematically dismantling his room's Corby trouser press, Alan takes to dressing up as a zombie to surprise the hotel staff. As detailed as his costume is – featuring ketchup blood stains, tungsten-tipped screws as claws and a shower curtain as a "flap of dead skin" – Alan's prank goes unappreciated ("Guests are not allowed behind reception"). With a swish of his curtain cape, a dejected Alan heads back to his room. "This country," he tuts.
