Miranda Hart: 'I used to think fame would justify my whole existence'

The much-loved actor has conquered radio and TV, comedy and drama. Now she is heading to the West End stage – the realisation of a childhood dream

The name Miranda Hart has become synonymous with chaos. Every stool she encounters is there to be slipped off, every sushi restaurant conveyor belt there to get trapped in. Hers is a world where, when life hands you lemons, you drop them all on the floor, slip over the stray one that rolls away and rip your trousers as you fall.

Yet, the awkward, hapless BBC character that became beloved by millions is not the same woman as Hart is off-screen. Far from falling flat on her face at every turn, the comedian has slowly conquered much of British culture, moving from radio to television comedy and drama, A-list Hollywood film – and now the West End stage.

Comic Relief: cast doubts and cynicism aside and stick a red nose on

It doesn’t matter if you don’t like Love Actually, French and Saunders in Carpool Karaoke or Greg Davies shouting in a hot tub – just stick your hand in your pocket

It doesn’t matter if you’re suspicious of the motives of some of the people involved (is it really all about charity, or is there an element of self-promotion?). Or if you hated Love Actually first time round, so more of it is not funny at all. Perhaps you’re uncomfortable with the sleb/slum juxtaposition, or you’re not 100% convinced that the answer to poverty in Africa is Greg Davies shouting in a hot tub on the O2. But cast your doubt and cynicism aside, even if it’s for one night only. Shut up, stick a red nose on… too much? Well, stick your hand in your pocket at least, dip into your stash.

Fabulous opening sequence,

Doctor Who: our casting wishlist for the BBC

Now that Peter Capaldi is standing down, the 13th Doctor is all to play for. But will it be Richard Ayoade, Ben Whishaw … or Miranda Hart?

Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who: your verdict on the outgoing Time Lord

It was hardly a surprise to learn that Peter Capaldi is to hang up his velvet jacket at the end of 2017. By the time of his exit at Christmas, he’ll have completed the standard stint of three-and-a-bit series as the Doctor. And with showrunner Steven Moffat also signing off, it stands to reason that the incumbent Chris Chibnall would want a clean slate and his own cast.
