Miranda finds it impossible to stand up to her eccentric mother Penny (Patricia Hodge) who makes embarrassing and desperate attempts to marry her off. Her rivalry with boarding school chum and PR Sloane Tilly (Sally Phillips) gets her in to all sorts of trouble as she can't help but lie to impress her; and worst of all her hapless pursuits of long-term crush Gary (Tom Ellis) means she always ends up flat on her face - literally in most cases. All her old friend Stevie (Sarah Hadland) does is stand back, laugh and unhelpfully point out where she is going wrong.
