These two series of Miranda Hart are riding brilliantly high in the comedy vehicle. This is well-deserved as she has brought a refreshing approach to the well-trodden pathway of domestic comedy. Her style is her own creation and her desire to perform in her own fashion has been justified by the popularity and ratings. Miranda is a belly-laugh comedienne. Not averse to self-parody, using her physical attributes to effect, nor to engaging the audience face to face using the camera as a personal observer. Natural and very funny. Scripts and characters are first-class. The situations she engenders are the background for her hilarity. The cast she performs with are just brilliant. Chef and fancy ('in your dreams') Gary (Tom Ellis) gives the romantic factor, old friend and shop colleague Stevie (the 'tell it as it is but look to see who is more attractive' but not in your face, Sarah Hadland), the posh boarding school friend Tilly (No thankyou darling, see you at Henley' )and the marvellous single-minded 'do-as-I say' mother Penny (Patricia Hodge) and 'if you don't listen I'm not bothered', add to the scenario, with other outrageous characters entering into the melee as and when deemed appropriate.Miranda makes you laugh. That is the essence of comedy. Not many can do that consistenly. Absolutely fabulous, as they say. Can't wait for the next series. These DVD's will help big time whilst we wait.
