BBC One and BBC Two sitcom starring Miranda Hart. 22 episodes (3 series), 2009 - 2015. Stars Miranda Hart, Sarah Hadland, Patricia Hodge, Tom Ellis and others.


The person responsible for moving Miranda from BBC Two to BBC One was the then Acting Director of BBC Vision, George Entwistle. He later (briefly) became the BBC's Director General.


The character of Clive, played by James Holmes, was quietly written out of the show after the second series, with no mention of where the character had gone.

Sarah Hadland revealed on Graham Norton's radio show the reason behind the move. She said: "With pressure of moving to BBC One I think the feeling was they wanted not to have such a big group of main characters, so unfortunately - there was nothing untoward about it - he was the smallest role of the main group so he had to go, which was really unfortunate. There's nothing unpleasant or acrimonious about it."


The title for Miranda Hart's 2014 live stand-up show references one of the catchphrases of the comedy. It's titled My, What I Call, Live Show.
