Filming Is More Demanding Than Ever

However, it’s more demanding than ever due to the strict COVID-19 precautions. He added that he doesn’t think it’s right to say that filming in such a condition is easy. Even it’s more demanding than ever, as they can’t address extra stunts, monsters, and Welsh weather.
Chibnall continued that last week the team faced the brutal weather on their filming location. Last Friday, they were all wet due to bad weather. However, it has been, and guess will continue for many months. They require the team to support a lot at this point in time.
