Brimming with warmth and featuring the best of British comedy talent, Miranda tracks the hysterical and unpredictable journey of a character you can't help but fall in love with. Miranda has always stood out from the crowd. She's over six foot tall, lacks any kind of grace and has an odd habit of dancing in inappropriate situations. She lives in her own chaotic world, making a living by owning a joke shop which is managed by her best friend and taskmaster Stevie (Sarah Hadland). She tries desperately to fit in with her old boarding school friends (Sally Phillips) who still refer to her as ‘Queen Kong' and seem more concerned with their BlackBerries and upcoming weddings than with Miranda's feelings. Her mother Penny (Patricia Hodge) is on a mission to get Miranda married, but a boarding school upbringing means Miranda is hopeless around men and her flirting skills leave a lot to be desired. When her old university pal Gary (Tom Ellis) becomes the chef at the restaurant next door, Miranda embarks on all kinds of hapless attempts to spark a ‘romantic moment'.

I like that this is eminently silly, often exaggerated and always strongly written. Laughs come often, usually at Miranda's expense. What is also clear is that Hart is a fabulous physical comedian, using her stature to excellent effect. This is a character that in some ways refuses to grow up but in others is desperate to and that dichotomy is one of the strengths of the writing. Miranda often finds herself in quite bizarre situations, and her frequent awkwardness as she tries to squirm her way out of yet another tight fix, wrapping herself in ever tighter knots is always a joy. One can suspect that some of this is an only slightly exaggerated version of Hart's real personality, so naturally does she portray the social awkwardness. This is a traditional British sitcom, there's nothing hugely groundbreaking here except the sheer excellence of it's cast and writing and the continued breach of the fourth wall which has since become a staple of the very different "Mrs Brown's Boys" and "Fleabag". Definitely on of the best the BBC has produced in the 21st Century.
Liked it so much I had to have a complete copy to cherish and return to when ever I got hit by the blues.
