Spaced with Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes – S01 E04 – Battles

04/04/2020

This Episode

After getting dumped by her boyfriend Richard, Daisy decides to cheer herself up by getting a dog. Having suffered a fear of dogs since childhood, Tim is not pleased by this. As Daisy bonds with an interesting little dog she calls Colin (named after the pet box she had as a child), Tim and Mike go paintballing, and encounter Tim’s arch-nemesis, Duane Benzie (Peter Serafinowicz), the man who stole Tim’s girlfriend. By the end of the episode, Mike will have made the (sort-of) ultimate sacrifice, Tim will have had his revenge, and Brian will have imparted the tragic, yet artistically interesting, tale of his own dog’s horrible death.

Supporting roles include Nick Frost as Tim’s best friend Mike, Katy Carmichael as Daisy’s best friend Twist, Mark Heap as lodger Brian who lives downstairs and Julia Deakin as landlady Marsha.

The first series of the show, comprising seven episodes, premiered in the UK on Channel 4 24 September 1999, and the second and final series, also consisting of seven episodes, premiered on 23 February 2001 before concluding on 13 April, with the final episode of the second series also serving as the series finale.

Both series were nominated for the BAFTA TV Award for Best Situation Comedy.
