As part of the Your Cardiff series of blog posts, we ask visitors to the city what makes Cardiff amazing.
Not all the visitors to Cardiff are from Earth – or even our time. Cardiff and Wales is used by a range of TV shows and movies as a location, with shows like Doctor Who, Sherlock, Torchwood, Merlin and more being filmed in the area, and Cardiff home to the world-famous attraction The Doctor Who Experience.
Doctor Who has a spiritual home in Cardiff, where the BBC’s Porth Teigr studios are based. The creator of the Daleks – Terry Nation – was from Cardiff himself.
We bumped into this fellow in one of Cardiff’s beautiful shopping arcades When we asked our metal visitor what he thought of the city, the Dalek sprung to life and spoke to us in a shrill, strange alien voice.
“I like visiting my social club, or, as you humans call it, The Doctor Who Experience. I also enjoy exterminating sustenance nearby at one of Cardiff Bay’s many delightful eateries”.
