Miranda – Series 1
(Roadshow Entertainment, PG)
Comedian Miranda Hart's hapless, socially awkward TV namesake is gawkily appealing.
Her comedic foils are conservative friend and workmate Stevie, and her posh mother, Penny (Patricia Hodge), with much of the humour coming from Penny's perpetual drive to see Miranda engaged to someone, anyone.
Much of the success of this series comes from the familiar 1970s British sitcom feel and the chummy asides to viewers. Occasionally the gags get silly and obvious. However, the show has been a huge success and fans of classic British comedy will love it.
