Kersefontein Guest Farm in Hopefield, pictured in the tweet and the Facebook post below, was also used for location filming. Many productions have used the guest farm for filming.

The two episodes filmed in South Africa are likely Episodes 1 and 5 of Doctor Who Series 12 but that could change over the course of production.

Doctor Who Series 12 airs very early in 2020.
