He said: “I would say season six, personally, was one of the hardest seasons to shoot and it was also a smaller season. I think it was sort of a cumulative effect of obviously shooting through winter in Scotland, which we always talk about the weather or whatever, but it was really tough.
“And I think also the subject material, I mean the Christies… my god that family. Boy, they’re hard work right?”
He added: “Those guys are amazing, aren’t they? They are fantastic as a family but geez, I wouldn’t invite them round for dinner. But also the Covid protocols just made everything slower and more difficult.
“But also I think despite being a smaller season, I think it’s one of the most interesting ones. It’s compact, it’s intense, so I actually really enjoyed it but it was very, very difficult.”
