Spaced, 1999

Spaced is a BAFTA nominated sitcom about the misadventures of Daisy Steiner and Tim Bisley, two twenty-something Londoners who, despite only having just met, decide to move in together.

The show ran for 2 series of 7 episodes each.  Series 1 was broadcast in 1999 and a second series followed in 2001.


Daisy Steiner and Tim Bisley are two London based twenty-somethings who meet by chance in a café while both are flat-hunting.  Despite barely knowing each other, the pair conspire to pose as a young professional couple in order to meet the requirements set out in an ad for a relatively cheap flat in the distinctive building at 23 Meteor Street, Tuffnell Park, owned by resident landlady Marsha Klein.

The series largely revolves around the surreal and awkward adventures of Tim and Daisy as they navigate through life, come to terms with affairs of the heart, and try to figure out new and largely unproductive ways of killing time.

Tim and Daisy repeatedly clarify that they are not a couple to everyone but Marsha (the landlady), but despite this, romantic tension develops between them, particularly during the second series.
