So what if she’s 6 feet 1 inch tall and gets called ‘Sir’ once too often…
It’s been a busy Fall already for Miranda Hart. Not only is she releasing ‘what she calls’ a book, but she is wrapping up filming for her long-awaited third installment of her brilliant comedy series, Miranda. Miranda: Is It Just Me?, which is due out next week, offers her fans and readers an opportunity to learn from her wealth of awkward experiences – from school days to life as an office temp. In the book, Miranda offers her 18-year-old self some much needed caution and guidance on ‘how to navigate life’s rocky path’. In addition, for those PBS viewers in the States, beginning Sunday, October 7, you will begin to see Miranda in the series, Call the Midwife, as part of the Masterpiece series as Chummy Browne. Oh, and there is her continued work in support of Comic Relief and Sport Relief too to add to those few minutes of spare time in her schedule.
From her comedy series standpoint, more time than the law allows has passed since the end of the second series of the ridiculously brilliant Miranda (2011 to be exact), which also stars Sally Phillips, Patricia Hodge, Sarah Hadland and Tom Ellis. Studio tapings, which gave the series much more of that old school Are You Being Served look of getting back into the studio before a live audience, ended in September. From a location standpoint, Miranda and cast were recently seen filming in Chiswick on Devonshire Road, which has frequently been the setting for much of the exterior scenes of her joke shop along with the restaurant that Gary chefs at. Obviously, the key to the series successes have been the comedic talent of not only Miranda Hart, but the ensemble cast
Award-winning Miranda returns in late Fall on BBC One
The 2010 winner of the Best New TV Comedy, Best TV Comedy Actress at the British Comedy Awards along with her 2011 awards for Best Scripted Comedy at the Royal Television Society Awards and another British Comedy Award in 2011 for Best TV Comedy Actress, Miranda was also nominated for a BAFTA in 2011 for Best Female Performance in a Comedy Role. Because of this success, the third series of Miranda will transmit on BBC One late Fall 2012, finally making the adult leap from BBC Two.
