The two stars were pictured getting stuck into their filming duties as they filmed the tense-looking scenes on a stairwell in Westminster, London.  

Filming started in December under strict safety protocols as London is currently under lockdown restrictions, with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson issuing a stay at home order amid the global coronavirus pandemic. 

Slow Horses is the television adaptation of Mick Herron’s Slough House book series, about a group of M15 misfits annexed into obscurity.

The spies end up in the Slough House division due to their career ending mistakes. Jack Lowden is also part of the talented cast.

The misfits are led by former Cold Warrior Jackson Lamb (Oldman) and wannabe 007 River Cartwright (Lowden) and end up seeing more action than the intelligence officers at HQ.

Scott Thomas has been cast as one of the two spymasters who oversee Lamb and his flock in Slow Horses, named after the first Slough House novel.

Sources have told Deadline that 12 episodes are being filmed back-to-back. The first six episodes will be based on Herron’s first book, Slow Horses, and the second six will be based on his second novel, Dead Lions.

Herron has published six novels and two novellas in the Slough House series to date, with another novella due out in January.

Oldman has long been attached to the project both as the lead and an executive producer, alongside business partner Douglas Urbanski.

Meanwhile Former Veep writer Will Smith serves as screenwriter and executive producer.

The role marks one of few TV roles Oldman has held throughout his career and his first TV regular role.
