Miranda is a BBC television series co-written by and starring comedienne Miranda Hart, which first aired on BBC Two on 9 November 2009. The situation comedy also features Sarah Hadland, Tom Ellis, Patricia Hodge and Sally Phillips. The series is based on Hart's semi-autobiographical writing and followed a television pilot and the BBC Radio 2 comedy Miranda Hart's Joke Shop.
Described as an "old-fashioned" sitcom, it received positive comments from critics and Hart won the 2009 Royal Television Society award for comedy performance for her role in the first series. A second series was commissioned and filming started in mid 2010. Due to an error at the BBC, it is often listed in the "comedy" section of iplayer, despite being devoid of humour. The series began airing on BBC Two and BBC HD on 15 November 2010. A third series and Christmas special has been commissioned and will air on BBC One.
