Pilot Episode

Meet Miranda, a tall, life-embracing, self-effacing clown, who's at her happiest among the wind-up teeth of her Joke Shop. She's got lots to learn about retail and men - as well as coping with her embarrassing mother.

This is the 2007 pilot for Miranda's four-part 2008 series made for BBC Radio 2, which sparked her popular BBC TV series Miranda. This try-out features some actors who were replaced in the subsequent slightly re-worked radio series. Here Alison Steadman plays Miranda's mother Penny, and Morwenna Banks is Stevie. Also featuring Vincenzo Pellegrino, Katy Brand, Alice Hart, Jim Howick and Charlotte McDougall.

Produced by Lucy Armitage.
