Stroud has been chosen as the backdrop for a major TV series starring award-winning actors Gary Oldman and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Apple TV project Slow Horses, is the television adaptation of Mick Herron’s Slow Horses series, about a group of M15 misfits.

Harry Potter star Oldman, 62, has yet to been seen on set with his co-star Scott Thomas, 60, where filming is due to take place at Cafe Max and A & A Taxis Service.

Both businesses have been adapted for the spy drama, with Cafe Max renamed the Station Cafe and A & A Taxis given a new number and office signage.

Pete Law, co-owner of A & A Taxis, said: “We were contacted by the production company to see if they could book our office out for filming – they’ve adapted the office a bit and put up a fake taxi number above our door, so please remember our number is 01453 767777. This is fantastic for us and it has put us on the map – the crew are really nice people.”

The area has been used to seeing TV and film crews in recent years – The Casual Vacancy, Cider With Rosie, Poldark, The Living and the Dead, The White Princess, The White Queen, Wolf Hall, The Crown, and Mitchell and Webb’s Back have all been shot in and around the Stroud district
