Gwen Cooper, from the top secret agency Torchwood, moves out of Cardiff for season four in the TV-series with the same name.

She and her husband (Rhys)¬†and child hide on a lonely cottage on the beach supposedly near Swansea. The cottage is “The Old Rectory“, owned by Brittish National Trust and is available for rent.

 

 

Doctor Who – Neath Abbey

If you have ever watched Doctor who and thought a you had seen that abbey before, it must have been Neath abbey. It was used in numerous episodes, “Beast Below”, “Vincent”, “Rebel Flesh”, “Almost People” and “Power of three”.

Doctor Who – Dunraven Bay

Image

The Tenth Doctor (and his clone) return to Bad Wolf Bay in various episodes of “Doctor Who”. In the series the location of this beach is in Norway, but it was filmed only 20 miles to the west of Cardiff.

The Tenth Docter uses Dunraven Bay in “Army of Ghosts”, “Doomsday” (2006) and “Journeys End” (2008).

But even the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, has been here in “The Time of Angels” and “Flesh and Stone” in 2009.

Doctor Who – Llansannor Court

Image

The building used for Agatha Christie’s house in the Doctor Who episode “The Unicorn and the Wasp” is Llansannor Court. Another nice movie fact is that the father of David Tennant (the Tenth Doctor) has a very small cameo appearance in this episode. Also, Felicity Jones stars in this episode. Much later she will play a much larger part, Jyn Erso in “Rogue One”. An episode to watch, for sure.

Doctor Who -Hensol Castle

Image

Again an episode with the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant, The Unicorn and the Wasp. Agatha Christie’s mansion is is fact Hensol Castle.

The same location was used in various episodes of ” The Sarah Jane Adventures” (Last of the Sontaran).
