I think everyone was. Miranda has been a success therefore commissioners want more Miranda, other Mirandas, Mirandas everywhere.
But it turned out that Heading Out (BBC Two, Tuesday, 10pm), the new sitcom from Sue Perkins, was not like Miranda at all. It did not have Miranda's perky, happy, essentially empty approach to life – it had darkness. It opened with a seriously ill pet cat being put down and then wrapped in a bin liner. Which is good. The point of comedy is to lighten dark places but to do that, it needs to go to dark places.
