EXTRACT FROM MEWS NEWS – JANUARY 2004:
The protectors – Screenplay Terence Feeley;
No 2 Courtfield Mews was used as the HQ in the series The Protectors.
“We in Courtfield Mews have Robert Vaughan who starred in The Protectors. The ‘Head quarter’ for the show was at No 2 Courtfield Mews. The Protectors was a thriller/drama series that ran from ’72-’74 and was created by Gerry Anderson of Thunderbirds fame. It co-starred Nyree Dawn Porter of the ‘Forsyte Saga’ and Tony Anholt of ‘Space 1999’. Robert Vaughan was of course ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E’ and was nominated for a Oscar for his role in The Young Philadelphians.
Neighbours have also mentioned that the property was featured in the filming of Cyrano de Bergerac and this is why the brickwork was painted black (since repainted white).
BOROUGH: Kensington and Chelsea.
