HELENA BONHAM CARTER may have been [...].

HELENA BONHAM CARTER may have been the star name, with Jason Watkins perhaps not too far behind - but Love, Nina (BBC1, last night) was mostly about Faye Marsay, who was a joy to watch in the title role.

Nick Hornby's sitcom, like Stefan Golaszewski's Mum, ended this week. It wasn't a competition, of course, but, if it was, I reckon Mum just won.

But, as the accident-prone children's nanny and all-round slave, Marsay's Nina quickly won our sympathy - because we knew that this likeable and straightforward personality was doing her best to survive and thrive in a London home containing two precocious boys, an arty and aloof mum - and almost ever-present pompous neighbour. Good work.
