|Throughout literature and art, not
just sport, Spurs have featured in one form or another.
Here MEHSTG looks at some of the
fictional situations which have name checked our club or its players.
|Jericho (2016 ITV series)
Two of the main characters in this Edwardian drama about building a viaduct across a Yorkshire valley had somewhat surprisingly familiar names.
The black American who came in with vast experience of building railroads in the USA was named Ralph Coates.
His nemesis, the prodigal brother of the man building the viaduct, was Johnny Jackson.
Coincidence ? ... Maybe, but then again ...
|Lucky Man (2016 Sky TV series)
The lead character was James Nesbitt (a renowned Man U fan) playing a maverick police detective, but his female side-kick, Nuri Chohan, was played as a Spurs supporting Detective Sergeant, as she explained the differences between her boyfriend and herself.
|EastEnders (BBC TV series)
Martin Fowler had Spurs posters on his wall, while the actor playing him was alleged to be a big Gooner.
|The Maltby Collection (BBC

|Life Is Sweet (Mike Leigh Film
