Generation Game Mark II: Miranda Hart Is Basically The New Brucey


Miranda Hart

Miranda Hart could still front the BBC's newly rebooted Generation Game, despite distancing herself from the revival. Charlotte Moore, the controller of BBC1, said the corporation was "working closely" with Hart on a modern reinvention of the popular gameshow, which began with Bruce Forsyth in 1971.

Moore confirmed plans for the reboot in Monday's Guardian newspaper, though Hart - arguably the most lucrative star at the BBC - said it was the first she had heard of the idea.

Miranda Hart Will Stick To Her Red Nose Day Duties Despite Ankle Injury


Miranda Hart

Miranda Heart will put a brave face on as she struggles through her Red Nose Day commitments with an injured ankle. The comedienne fell while wearing heels, but isn’t going to let that stop her raising money for kids.

She said: "I should have known better, I was wearing a heel at the time, which is ridiculous as I'm 6ft 1in. To be honest, it was only an inch-and-a-half heel but that was enough to do it. I normally only wear ballet pumps. I was in my hotel room and I just went. So much for my Mad March - this is now definitely going to be Miranda's Mad Hop." Some of Hart’s challenges will be okay; she can do them sitting down. But there are a few challenges she might struggle with, like, maybe, dancing. She was told about her first challenge live on Radio 2 on Monday morning by breakfast show host Chris Evans – waxing as many armpits as possible in three minutes. "I'm a shaver not a waxer so this is completely new territory for me,” she explained. "Goodness knows where the wax is going to end up tonight - all I can say is, good luck Newcastle."

As Her Sitcom Reaches Finale, Miranda Hart Eyes Arena Tour: Can It Work?


Miranda Hart Peter Kay Lee Evans John Bishop

Miranda Hart is without doubt the most popular British female comedian of the minute, and with the recent season finale of her successful BBC sitcom, Hart is to begin work on writing material for a huge arena tour in 2014. Comedians have an uneasy relationship with huge emotionless hangars, but the likes of Peter Kay, Lee Evans and John Bishop have proven it CAN work.

Miranda has performed sketches and stand-up on the live circuit before, but the success of her TV series means her forthcoming show 'My, What I Call, Live Show' will take in far larger venues, including London's O2 arena. So what can we expect from the tour? The promotional bumf offers, "The award winning Queen of Comedy is on stage doing stand-up for the first time since her hit series Miranda aired on the BBC. Grab a chance to see Miranda's laugh out loud genius live. She wants you to join her party. Expect galloping, attempts at song and dance, and simply - such fun!"

Though there were initial reservations about whether Hart could fill a 15,000 capacity, ticket-buyers quickly allayed any fears. In fact, following Monday night's season three finale of her sitcom, Miranda has announced a handful of extra dates at London's O2 Arena, Manchester Arena, Liverpool Echo Arena, Sheffield Motorpoint Arena, Birmingham's NIA and the new Leeds Arena.

The BBC's Call The Midwife Bows To Downton Abbey


Miranda Hart

The BBC has moved the time of the Christmas special episode of their award winning period drame, Call the Midwife, to fend off competition from ITV1. 

National holidays have become a time for which families come and sit together to eat and watch hours upon hours of television. As the religious significance of Christmas continues to be eroded by the alternate shrine, one devoted to mass production and celebrity, it is of course the prime concern of all networks to make sure they draw in as many millions of people as possible, and to guarantee the top quality broadcasting on Christmas day and the days that surround it. Therefore it's necessary for the BBC to move Call the Midwife, ensuring that there's no clash with the ITV... tour de force, Downton Abbey, reports the Telegraph.

The BBC timing had already accommodated the parallel period drama from ITV, opting to broadcast it at a fairly early time of 7:45pm until 9pm, with Downton starting at 9pm. However, in a late move, ITV chose to pull Downton forward by 15 minutes to 8:45pm, meaning that viewers would be forced either to miss the final section of Call the Midwife, which stars Miranda Hart, or miss the opening of Downton. A very crafty tactic by ITV to steal some viewers. However, the BBC has chosen to move their show again, likewise moving it forward by 15 minutes.

The Infidel Review


Good

Astutely combining sharp comedy with complex political and theological issues, this film is packed with strong themes and vivid characters that keep us interested even as the plot drifts into silly slapstick.

London cabbie Mahmud (Djalili) is a loving family man and a relaxed Muslim whose son Rashid (Shah) wants to marry the step-daughter (Radford) of a radical Imam (Naor). But just as Mahmud is trying to behave like a better Muslim, he discovers that his birth parents were Jewish. Suddenly, his whole world shifts on its axis, and he turns to rival Jewish cabbie Lenny (Schiff) for advice.
He's also understandably terrified to tell his family the truth, although his wife (Panjabi) suspects that something's up.

While Baddiel's smart, funny script probes the comical possibilities, Appignanesi's direction continually looks for sight gags and rude jokes. The result is a little uneven: even though these two elements come together often, the wacky physical humour sometimes undermines the more provocative themes. On the other hand, this approach keeps us nicely off-balance, never quite sure where the story might go while allowing the cast to make the most of their characters.

Most enjoyable, and telling, is the way this news causes Mahmud to see the world through different eyes. Not only is this amusing, but it also challenges our own perspective on the world around us. Djalili plays this cleverly; we can understand why Mahmud finds it impossible to continue hating Jews. Watching him try to become a better Muslim even as he's studying Judaism is pretty intense, although it's basically played for laughs. When Lenny welcomes Mahmud to "the worldwide conspiracy", it's a joke. Right?

These elements make the film much more meaningful than most comedies, and add offbeat details to the characters and situations. So it's a bit frustrating when the plot takes over in the final act, weaving in a side-story from early on that we knew would come back later, then heading for a big showdown that feels like it was grafted on from Hollywood script-writing software. This milks the emotions more than was necessary, but even here the corny slapstick is intermingled with theology, giving the whole film a potent kick.
