Doctor Who Series 12 being filmed on island

After flying into Tenerife on 1st April, the Doctor Who production crew and cast, including Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Mandip Gill and Tosin Cole, started work on filming Series 12 the following day.
On 2nd-3rd April, there was filming in a landscape, dominated by pines in volcanic soil around Montaña Samara, near Mount Teide, and they have all been staying in the area of Playa Arena and Puerto Santiago.
On 5th April, the cast travelled to the other end of the island, in Santa Cruz, to film in front of the Auditorio de Tenerife, and Whittaker, Walsh and Cole were, reportedly, there. The three actors were not in the formal gear they were seen wearing during location filming in Wales.
At least five guest stars were said to be with the cast, including one actor known for playing creatures. There are also reports of actors sporting brightly-coloured wigs, in shades of green, pink and yellow.
The series should be shown early next year, and a person who worked on one of the episodes over here was told not say anything about his/her involvement until May 2020.
This date could be just after one of the episodes filmed in Tenerife is scheduled to be shown, and, if this is the case, the series might not premiere until the April.
