Get Spaced Here
This is the house featured in Spaced the classic TV comedy
Location: 23 Carleton Road, Tuffnell Park, N7
Description: 'Spaced' is a British television situation comedy written by and starring Simon Pegg and Jessica Stevenson, and directed by Edgar Wright.
It is noted for its rapid-fire editing, frequent pop-culture references and jokes, eclectic music, and occasional displays of surrealism. Two series of seven episodes each were broadcast in 1999 and 2001 on Channel 4.
And also of course - it was simply superb.
And this is the very spot and house that you will see in most episodes where Tim Bisley (Pegg) and Daisy Steiner (Stevenson) live. It was called 23 Meteor Street in the show.
According to Simon Pegg, the series Northern Exposure and its frequent use of fantasy sequences was 'one of the key influences' in the creation of the show. In fact, he and Jessica Hynes pitched the show to LWT as 'a cross between The Simpsons, The X-Files and Northern Exposure.'
