The Veil (2024) is a six-part spy thriller following the relationship between two women – Isobel Salter and Adilah El Idrissi – as one works to uncover the other’s deadly secret.

The series was created by Steven Knight (Redemption (2013), Amazing Grace (2007)) and stars Elisabeth Moss (The Invisible Man, The Handmaid’s Tale) as Imogen Salter and Yumna Marwan (Little Birds, Costa Brava, Lebanon) as Adilah El Idrissi. Supporting the lead cast are Dali Benssalah (No Time to Die, Athena) as French operative and Imogen’s lover Malik, and Josh Charles (Dead Poets Society, Sports Night) as Imogen’s American counterpart Max.

Filming for the series took place in Canterbury; the lead actresses run through a busy City Centre towards Canterbury Cathedral. The street scenes were filmed on Buttermarket, Burgate, Mercery Lane and Butchery Lane. Driving shots also took place on the A2 and the A252.

Canterbury is a historic city; many of its original structures remain including the Cathedral (which is among the oldest in England), as well as a city wall founded in Roman times. The city is a popular tourist destination which boasts a modern shopping complex and many restaurants and bars. Other productions to have filmed in Canterbury include Rustom (2016) and A Canterbury Tale (1944).

Canterbury Cathedral is the oldest and most renowned cathedral in England. It was first founded in 597 but was completely rebuilt from 1070 to 1077. It is currently a World Heritage site. Last Orders (2002) features the grounds of the Cathedral.

Filming also took place at 14 Augusta Gardens in Folkestone. A large white and cream Italianate style Victorian semi-detached villa, 14 Augusta Gardens is situated just minutes from Folkestone beach. The interior of the property features a grand piano, white marble fireplaces and a cantilevered staircase.

The Veil (2024) will drop on Disney+ UK on Wednesday 29th May 2024.
