The gripping stalker journey began in episode 1 when Donny took Martha for a cup of coffee. This scene was filmed outside F Cooke, a famous pie and mash shop in Hoxton. Martha became obsessed with Donny so much that she wrote about these “coffee fun times” in one of the 40 thousand emails she sent him! This unhealthy stalking obsession spanned over six years but it triggered her when Donny confessed that he sees her as a friend rather than a lover.

2. The Regent’s Canal, Haggerston

The Regent’s Canal is shown throughout Netflix’s Baby Reindeer as it is his typical path to home. It is shown when he is on his way back home from a disastrous date with Teri in episode 3. Teri is trans and an American therapist, whom he met on a dating app. Royal Vauxhall Tavern in Vauxhall was the filming location for this date. This leads to a late-night encounter with Martha who later sexually assaults him in the streets. Martha even mentions this spot rather in a threatening manner, a couple of times in her emails.

3. The Hoppy, Meadowbank

In episode three of Baby Reindeer, when we get to witness the dreadful experiences of Donny at the Edinburgh Festival.

4. Army & Navy, Stoke Newington

For the actual filming location of his standup comedy gigs, the interiors of Army & Navy were shot. It is a pub where regulars catch up on football matches but are interrupted by a regular gig by Donny. He ends up meeting Darrien, a writer, at this pub who later grooms and abuses him.
