Martha reveals a softer side to her nature in this week's episode, as Andrew takes her courting. 'In the first few episodes she's a bit of a battle-axe,' says Laura Brattan, the 23-year-old actress who plays Martha the maid. 'Now she is with her young man, you can see her vulnerability more.' This is Brattan's first major role since leaving drama school. To prepare for the part, she became a nanny for two weeks last summer. She became great friends with the children on the programme. 'Despite the age gap, we treat each other like equals.'

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
