Trivia

  • The series opening titles parody the opening titles of ITV’s “This Morning”, more than “The One Show. “This Morning” uses shots of their main hosts arriving to the ITV Studios (actually since late 2010s the former BBC TV Centre), but with more subdued graphics. “This Time…” uses the exact same video shot package style of their main hosts arriving, but uses bright colours reflecting “The One Show” graphics style instead.
  • According to an article on Digital Spy, the series is “partly inspired by Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain (2014)” and “the duo’s dynamic shares more than a few similarities with Piers and Susanna Reid”
  • The first BBC Alan Partridge production since I’m Alan Partridge ended in 2002
  • The series received generally favourable reviews.
