8:00pm – Friday, March 19 on ABC2
Miranda is a six-part British sitcom based on the semi-autobiographical writings of comedy actress Miranda Hart (Absolutely Fabulous).
Miranda is desperate to fit in with her girly friends from boarding school, but at 185cm she stands out from the crowd. Her nemesis Tilly (Sally Phillips) seems to be the big success that Miranda’s mother, Penny (Patricia Hodge) always hoped Miranda would be.
Miranda certainly doesn’t know how to behave around men, and even flirting causes problems especially with her old friend from university, Gary (Tom Ellis), when he starts working in the restaurant next door. However, Miranda is happiest playing games at her joke shop which is managed by her childhood best friend, and sense of humour vacuum Stevie (Sarah Hadland).
When Gary asks Miranda out for a drink to catch up, she gets over excited by the prospect of her first real date and decides it’s time to try and be more girly. She goes shopping for a new outfit to impress Gary but her make-over doesn’t go quite to plan.
After begrudgingly attending a reunion lunch with her old boarding school chums, she ends up being talked into helping them with their wedding dress shopping – against her better judgement.
