|The fountain - the Torchwood bunker was meant to be under here.|
With Torchwood back on the screen, although no longer located in Cardiff, I thought I'd dedicate today to a few of the city's landmarks that fans might recognise. I used to work in the area of Cardiff where the series was filmed. Filming usually took place at night, and I frequently ran into camera crews, with equipment still strewn all over the road, while on my way to work in the morning. The night scenes contributed to the edgy atmosphere of the show, and it was always fun trying to work out which part of the city you were looking at.
Torchwood was not the only series to be filmed around the Bay and in the surrounding area. Doctor Who was/is also filmed around here.
|The Pierhead Building|
|The Millennium Centre|
another familiar landmark from Torchwood. It was also the location of the first public reading from Never Coming Home.
But that's another story.
