“Also, everyone’s got an eye as productions start to open up again now over how different productions manage things and how sets work.
“I think there’s a bit of us which is trying to keep an eye on avoiding unnecessary crowd scenes and things like that.
“We’re always trying to be bigger and better and more ambitious and I don’t think we’re tempering it in that sense, we’re just having to look at some of the practicalities of shooting with a slightly more intense eye.
“But we don’t know until we get to January, it’s very hard to know exactly what the parameters of shooting will be.”
However, there are hopes to start filming in February with the show hopefully coming out in the autumn of 2021 – but this will be dependent on the global pandemic.
The previous two seasons both consisted of six episodes and the third cycle is likely to follow suit with a similar number of instalments.
