Him & Her
BBC3, 10:30 pm
New comedy, starring Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani.
Whether as a werewolf in Being Human, lovelorn jailer in Little Dorrit or heroic midshipman in Doctor Who, there are few more charming actors than Russell Tovey. Here, he plays layabout Steve in a fly-on-the-wall sitcom set entirely in the messy one-bed flat of a young couple in love. Be warned, though - it's not all hearts and flowers. Instead, the laughs come from the everyday intimacy of their lives laid bare, with a typical scene featuring Steve reading the paper in his pants while partner Becky (Sarah Solemani) sits on the toilet pondering the crossword. Superb.
