by Charles Barfield | The Playlist | February 2, 2023

Being a spy requires a lot of discretion. You have to not only keep most of what you do at work a secret, but you sometimes even have to lie to those closest to you to protect that work. But what happens when your best friend is also a spy? And not only that, what if that best friend who is a spy might also be a double agent, working for the enemy? That drama is what propels the plot of the new limited series, “A Spy Among Friends.”

Tufnell Park: The Pretty North London ‘Village’ Loved by Celebrities Like Damian Lewis

Where Neighbours Always Help Each Other Out

by Nicole Karageorgi | My London | February 1, 2023

Tufnell Park is a quiet ‘village’ but has a lot to offer – you might even spot a famous face. North London has its fair share of celebrities who call areas like Hampstead, Chalk Farm, and Highgate home. But, lying between Holloway, and busy Kentish Town is a quiet ‘village’ that’s loved by celebrities and has its very own stop on the Northern line.

Tufnell Park has been described by those who work and live there as a ‘wonderful place’ with an ‘amazing sense of community’. The neighbourhood straddles the London Boroughs of Islington and Camden. It was historically used for dairy farming, and acted as an important base for distributing dairy around Central London.

The manor of Barnsbury, which is said to have stood where the Odeon Cinema is today, was inherited by William Tufnell in 1753, which is how Tufnell Park got its name. The estate later passed to other brothers, before it was eventually inherited by Henry Tufnell. Henry sponsored the development of housing in the area in 1845.

Today, the neighbourhood is a quiet village where ‘everyone knows everyone’ and residents love to help each other out. If you pass through, you might come across a few celebrities. The likes of actor Damian Lewis, TV presenter, Jon Snow, and Madness singer, Suggs are said to live there.

by Michael Pickard | Drama Quarterly | January 13, 2023

Stars Damian Lewis and Anna Maxwell Martin join the team behind A Spy Among Friends to discuss the making of this ITVX espionage drama, which is based on the true story of two lifelong friends and British spies – one of whom is a double agent. When he was initially approached to star in A Spy Among Friends, Damian Lewis didn’t know which of the two leads he would play.
