You might have spotted some promotions for BBC Two's 'precision engineered comedy' recently. It's been a great year for comedy on the channel - now here's an idea of what to look forward to in the not-too-distant future...

Psychoville is coming back in 2011 - this is a tantelising taste of what's in store. In the meantime, have you discovered Nurse Kenchington's hidden message?

Miranda is back for a brand new series! It doesn't matter what she attempts in life, whether it's dating or simply dealing with her overbearing mother, Miranda always seems to fall flat - quite literally. And as an extra treat, each week on the Red Button and online, Miranda Hart discusses the inspiration behind the characters with a special guest.

Episodes is the story of a happily married English couple, Sean and Beverly Lincoln who also happen to be successful producers of a hit British TV show called Lyman's Boys. At an awards ceremony in London they are wooed by a hugely powerful and charismatic US network executive who persuades them to move out to LA and remake their hit show for an American audience – with disastrous results. Oh, and their lead actor is replaced by a certain Matt Leblanc...

An improvised tour of the north of England reunites comedy favourites Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. In the style of Curb Your Enthusiasm, the story is fictional... but based around their real personas. Gulp.

The Trip continues on Mondays at 10pm on BBC Two

Rev

Meet The Rev. Adam Smallbone (In the Loop's Tom Hollander). He’s a Church of England Vicar, newly promoted from a sleepy rural parish to the busy, inner-city world of St Saviour’s in East London. It’s a world he has little experience of... and it shows. It really shows.

Whites

Set in the kitchen of a country house hotel, Whites followed the trials and tribulations of head chef Roland White (Alan Davies) and his long suffering sous chef Bib (Darren Boyd) - not to mention their ambitious new team member Skoose (Stephen Wight).
