In the 1980s, Nina Stibbe, a young nanny from Le­ices­ter­shire, found her­self rub­bing shoul­ders with the literati af­ter she landed a job on one of the most Bo­hemian streets in Lon­don. Her let­ters home to her sis­ter, de­pict­ing the re­sul­tant cul­ture clash, went on to form the ba­sis of her award-win­ning, best­selling book, Love, Nina – and now it’s been adapted into this fic­tion­alised com­edy drama by Nick Hornby. If that wasn’t an im­pres­sive enough pedi­gree, the fivepart se­ries also stars Helena Bon­ham Carter as Nina’s em­ployer George.
