After Life's Tony: the only local journalist in a £1m house

Tony's house used in filming is actually in Hampstead, just off the Heath, and would in real life cost comfortably north of £3 million. The rest of the Tambury locations are spread between the commuter-belt towns of Hemel Hempstead, Rickmansworth and Beaconsfield but even if it were here I think Tony's extremely des res would cost close to £1 million which he would be funding with what in reality be a salary of....£25,000 or so.

After Life 3: How TikTok took a Ricky Gervais fan to Netflix

Before the pandemic, Cole Anderson-James was a salesman in a "boring 9 to 5 job". Then he downloaded TikTok. The 24-year-old's videos - lip-syncing to scenes from The Office - soon attracted millions of views. And he can now be seen alongside the man he impersonates, after Ricky Gervais cast the fan to appear in the new series of After Life on Netflix.

The week in TV: Screw; After Life

Screw seesaws rather too jerkily between liberal idealism and acid cynicism. After Life remains tonally bizarre: one moment suffocatingly mawkish, the next jarringly crass.

After Life Series 3 review

Ricky Gervais's foul-mouthed comedy about grief and community returns for a final six-episode run. Despite its good qualities, however, it fails to pluck at heartstrings quite like it intends.

After Life Series 3 review

Only Ricky Gervais could get away with a show this toothless.

After Life's saving grace is the cast of lovable freaks around Ricky Gervais.

After Life, review: the emotional depth of a Post-It note

Ricky Gervais's Netflix project has gone from perfectly watchable to a soggy pudding of a series that wallows in its own thin-skinned misanthropy.
