Here’s some that missed the Gallifrey Guardian:

As a shared viewing for two, Mandip Gill and Sacha Dhawan, in coordination with BBC America, chose to simultaneously watch Spyfall while tweeting with the #SpyMaster hashtag. A sampling of their Tweets:
Really thought I’d get to wear my police uniform again…but what a good boss.
Did you know when we stepped into O’s hut (South Africa), we were back in Cardiff!!
There he is!!! Loved playing ‘O’. At this point I hadn’t even looked at the script pages for The Master… In order for the reveal to work it was easier to play them as two separate people.
This was the first I was revealing The Master to anyone. I was having fun but I was genuinely terrified!! The crew were so brilliant that day allowing me to bounce all over the place.
Dhawan described the last scene in Spyfall, Part Two as particularly difficult because he had to memorize a three-minute monologue.
