More Miranda being talked about, says Tom Ellis

Tom Ellis, who starred as a love interest in the BBC Two comedy, has added fuel to previous rumours that we could see more from Miranda in the future.

The revelation came from an appearance on HuffPost UK’s BUILD, with Ellis saying: “We’re talking about it, yes. At the moment, it is difficult and it’s just about scheduling and getting us all together in the same room, but we are talking about doing a few bits more in the future.

“That’s about as much as I can tell you at the moment,” he added.

As any TV junkie will know, the inability to talk about something happening almost always means that the thing is in the process of happening, so we’re hopeful in this case.

Creator and star Miranda Hart previously ruled out a movie version of the show, and Ellis claimed this was more about keeping the quality up than anything else.

He continued: “We actually did talk about doing it as a film and it was quite a tangible thing for a while. But, ultimately, what I love about Miranda – the person – is that she is really hot on quality control and I think that’s brilliant. I think if some people had had their way, we’d have done many, many more series of Miranda. Miranda writes that show on her own and that is the reason it is so good, and she is not happy to settle for something that doesn’t feel right.

“When I was a kid, Dad’s Army did a movie, and I couldn’t get my head around or understand it because it didn’t have a live studio audience and that was a big part of what that show was. It’s a big part of what Miranda is as a show, and if you do a movie of it, you can’t have a live studio audience. It sounds strange, but it’s part of the chemistry of that show.”
