Miranda's Half Hour
Hi, hi, hi. Hope you are well. So we're up to the penultimate episode and next week - Christmas ep - yay!
Now this episode is a slightly unusual departure. It's set in one room and all played in real time. I have always wanted to write one of those sitcom episodes, having been inspired by David Renwick's One Foot In the Grave episodes, when he would just have Victor at home for half an hour or two people stuck in a car. And of course I was initially inspired by Hancock's Half Hour where it would just be Tony Hancock for, well, half an hour. (I know, aren't I clever?)
However, as I started to write it I realised why David Renwick is regularly labelled a genius, as it's really hard to write a story with such limitations. It all becomes jokes which I don't really do. It also gave me massive respect for the writers of Roger and Val (the recent Dawn French and Alfred Molina vehicle) which I think is a wonderful show.
So, won't lie, bit nervous about this episode, so I will just go and hide behind the sofa and see you after.
