Tommy Saxondale

I am still undecided whether Saxondale is actually funny, or is more of a drama with comedic elements. The character is a bit of a departure for Steve Coogan, especially when compared with Alan Patridge, which is indubitably hilarious. Tommy Saxondale is conscious of his many faults but is so much of a misanthrope that his only real motivation for change is being alone and penniless.  He hasn’t quite relinquished his youth but detests the young. I am quite curious to see how his relationship with his assistant develops as an analog for the father-son relationship.
