Mandip Gill confirmed to Entertainment Weekly this year’s Doctor Who holiday special, “Revolution of the Daleks,” has already been filmed.
I can confirm that. There is a festive episode. We happened to be quite lucky and fit it in, so that will be exciting.
Likewise, Cara Delevinge revealed that six of the eight episodes comprising Carnival Row’s second season were filmed before production shut down.
The second season is going to be so good, but I don’t know when we’re going to finish it. And probably not until the winter, because it has to be cold outside and snowing and miserable.
