Miranda

Series 3 - 5. Three Little Words

Radio Times
Review by:
Mark Braxton

In tonight’s highly strung, celeb-sprinkled outing, Miranda realises she doesn’t love homely Mike, and “Queen of Pushy” Penny soon finds a way to make her dinner party the talk of the tennis club.

The episode is both hysterical and maddening, its plot riven with sitcom complication, but the outcome will make you wish the finale had followed on immediately afterwards. A word of praise for Sarah Hadland as Miranda’s sparky pal Stevie, who always keeps the laughs ticking over with a sulky strut here and a beautifully tortured metaphor there. And for Dominic Coleman as a total stranger who somehow becomes entangled in every plot twist.

About this programme

5/6. Gary is preparing for the grand reopening of the restaurant, and the sight of him in his best chef whites has Miranda in a spin - he has never looked so handsome. Stevie's advice is simple - she has to tell him how she feels before it's too late. But can the clumsy shopkeeper bring herself to utter those three little words? Or will her mother ruin her attempts as she excitedly stalks her poster boy Raymond Blanc?
