Torchwood

The old Custom House and the open air concert arena
The water tower
Posted by Picasa
If anyone is familiar with the TV series of Torchwood they will recognise these features in Cardiff Bay.
The series, along with the Dr. Who episodes, was filmed in Cardiff and together they have boosted tourism to the city. The monolith is a water tower and if you enlarge it you can see water cascading down the sides. The Torchwood headquarters were supposedly below it with the entrance at the foot of the tower.
I took these pictures early in the morning when no one was out and about, apart from cyclists who fancied a ride in the Spring sun.

  1. Hi Dave, That water tower must be mesmerizing with the water flowing down. Can you hear any water splashes or does it just quietly disappear.

    I've never seen Torchwood. Or Dr. Who. What a loss to me. I could have seen Cardiff over and over.

  4. Thank you Dave or the links. These shows look quite engaging. I should suggest to our local PBS station that they carry Torchwood. There is a different Dr. Who that has played in the US. I wonder if they share scripts?

    I have never seen either Torchwood or Dr. Who. I'm with Annie...I could look at pictures of Cardiff and surrounding areas for a long time!
