Summary

[Contains explicit content] Meet Miranda. She's a dominatrix. She has a flatmate, friends and neighbours who have no idea what she gets up to behind closed doors. And did we mention an assortment of slightly off kilter clients? In this opening episode, we hear her try (and fail) to sort out a marketing strategy for a range of painfully absurd and always hilarious bedroom services.

Annoying

Probably a good story but couldn’t continue to listen because of the over caring and annoying characters

Demands a sequel!

Mistress Miranda, I’m on my knees begging for more! Fresh and funny, this mini series was too short for me. Miranda’s sparkling wit teamed with an array of eccentric characters made this audio series a pleasure to listen to. I particularly loved the frugal submissive ‘Pig’ but agree with other listeners that ‘Steve the driving instructor’ stole the show. Fantastic!

oh dear ! Tries too hard !!

I think I can honestly say this is the worst offering from audible in all formats that I have listened to since I became a regular subscriber.

This is 30 minutes I will never get back.

It is difficult to envisage listening to the rest of the series, although if I am suffering with insomnia I may give it a go!

Second series please!

A portrayal of something not usually brought up in conversation, I found this very funny and I could actually identify with the characters.

Brilliant set of stories

I really recommend this series, it is extremely funny without being rude or obnoxious, but still racy and saucy. The imagery it invokes is vivid and obscure and very amusing. It may make your great grandmother blush a bit, but not much more. Please add to the series, you have done a great job with this pilot.,.

A Very Lazy Piece of Writing

I thought this might be entertaining, especially with the "sex work is still work" movement and believed that this would be a funny and nuanced take on the subject. Instead we're presented with the sort of jokes that may just as well have been written 30 years ago. Lots of sniggering, lots of caricatures, just very disappointing.

I had no sense that the performers were even gamely getting behind the story line, it seemed to me to be a very good example of "phoning it in". I couldn't make it beyond Miranda trying hard to get onto the sex offender's register before I removed all of the episodes from my device.

Seriously, there are better examples of sex work and comedy out there, I'd advise you to go find them instead of wasting your time on this.

Fun and enjoyable series

I loved this series - really funny and well written. Great comedic timing and perfect banter between Miranda and her flatmate. I was gutted when the series ended. Need more !
