The stars of Spaced reunited: ‘Our show doesn’t feel dated like Friends’

Two decades on from the cult comedy, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright and Jessica Hynes reminisce about the making of a game-changing classic

I am not in 23 Meteor Street, circa 1999. In fact, I’m in the BFI office in central London at the fag end of 2019. But by God, it’s easy to forget that, sitting opposite Nick Frost, Jessica Hynes and Simon Pegg, as they talk about their seminal sitcom Spaced, and each so jarringly reminiscent of their characters it verges on unnerving. Set on the fictional street in north London, Spaced told the deceptively simple story of two flatmates: aspiring-if-she-could-just-be-arsed writer Daisy Steiner and thwarted comic-book artist Tim Bisley. Accompanying them on their deeply prosaic adventures (a paintball tournament one week, a club night the next), which somehow achieved the heights of mythic glory, were their downstairs neighbour, tortured artist Brian (Mark Heap), his girlfriend Twist (Katy Carmichael), who worked “in fashion”, by which she meant a dry cleaners, Tim’s childhood friend Mike (Frost) and their landlady Marsha (Julia Deakin).

A two bedroom flat is up for rent in the home used as the exterior of the cult series Spaced. A dream come true, for any Spaced fan who can afford the £460 pw! It’s the lower flat and looks nothing like Brian’s flat, but that doesn’t stop a huge fan of Spaced from dreaming of living there, does it?


Best to save your money and just respectfully have your photograph taken in front of the house. Please do not knock on the front door, Tim and Daisy will not answer. ;)
