What carries two cameras; one for filming, one for cool behind-the-scenes stuff? That's right! It's Netflix's live-action adaptation of The Witcher! That is to say that Netflix has released a new behind-the-scenes documentary cunningly titled Making The Witcher, which is available for streaming right now.

If you're a fan of The Witcher universe and of behind-the-scenes stuff in general this naturally will be right up your alley. The programme takes a deep-dive into the production of the show, and features interviews with cast and crew members like Henry Cavill, who plays Geralt Of Rivia, Freya Allen, who puts in an excellent performance as a young Ciri, and Joey Batey, who gave us probably the greatest song of 2019 as Jaskier.

The team chat through their experiences, Andrzej Sapkowski's excellent source material, the technicalities of filming, the lore of the franchise and more - perfect for anybody who has even a passing interest in The Witcher or how shows like it get made.

If indeed you are a fan, you'll be pleased to hear that production on the second series of The Witcher has picked up again after a lengthy break due to COVID-19. The show will be eight episodes long and was originally planning to be released in 2021, though understandably that date will have been pushed back a bit by now.

So how has beloved super-nerd Henry Cavill spent his time during the filming hiatus? Building himself a gaming PC obviously, much to the delight of squealing internet fanboys across the globe. I'm talking about me. I'm the squealing internet fanboy.

Cavill has earned himself legions of fans for his unabashed love of all things geek. As well as a passion for PC gaming, he loves painting Warhammer models, and actively sought out the role of Geralt, being a huge fan of the excellent book series and CD Projekt RED's equally excellent video games.
