Miranda

Series 3 - 3. The Dinner Party

Radio Times
Review by:
Mark Braxton

Our cack-handed heroine is still together with Mike (Bo Poraj), and tells us she’s every inch the sophisticated girlfriend (she now owns a pashmina). But is the strain getting to her? Miranda’s inappropriateness reaches new heights during a chaotic dinner party, ending with what seems like a hefty broadside at her critics. You go girl!

It’s a riotous episode, and many of the best lines fall to Patricia Hodge. Thanks to her role as Miranda’s eccentric mother, Hodge is fast approaching national-treasure status. Such fun.

About this programme

3/6. The shop owner's friends accuse her of being immature, so she sets out to prove she can officially be an adult. First she looks after a toddler - only to find the lure of the soft-play centre just too tempting - and then hosts a dinner party for eight, where disaster is on the menu. Comedy, starring Miranda Hart, Tom Ellis and Patricia Hodge.
