Could the next 007 come from the Scottish Borders?

Happy Valley has always been a tough action to watch, but viewers are already hooked on the true life story of the biggest robbery in UK history.

The theft took place on November 26, 1983, when six armed men broke into the Brinks Matt security depot near London’s Heathrow Airport, inadvertently finding gold bars worth £26 million.

Episode Gold first aired on Sunday, February 12, with all episodes available as a box set on iPlayer.

It’s been over a year since Daniel Craig left the 007 series in No Time To Die and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson have said the next Bond will be a man and teased that he’s likely to be in his 30s.

The 32-year-old, who grew up in Oxton, has seen his odds slip from 16-1 to 10-1 at Ladbrokes and from 28-1 to 7-1 at William Hill.

Lowden also plays MI5 agent River Cartwright in the hugely popular series Slow Horses, and last year joined writer Mick Herron on stage at the Borders Book Festival.

Prior to the show, the Border Telegraph newspaper asked Lowden about the speculation but he refused to elaborate on the matter.

“It’s really fun to be associated with Bond, but I think Daniel Craig should have stayed in the role a little longer,” he said.

Other names in the frame to replace Craig include current favorite Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the 32-year-old Englishman who won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as an unemployed psycho in Tom Ford’s thriller Nocturnal Animals.

Henry Cavill has always been one of the showrunners to don the iconic tuxedo, as has Tom Hardy, though his age may count against him.

James Norton, who played psychopath Tommy Lee Royce in the award-winning BBC police drama Happy Valley, is also well-received.
