Doctor Who's had something of a love affair with Cardiff since the show's revival in 2005, with many episodes set in and around the city, and now you can discover them all in person with this Doctor Who Cardiff Walking Tour for Two. Following an expert and knowledgeable guide you'll head into Cardiff Castle, itself used in several Doctor Who and Torchwood stories, followed by a tour of the city centre and the side streets where characters met, died, and generally ran around away from rubbery aliens. You'll see the National Museum of Wales, the church and site of Donna Noble's wedding, as well as lots of other interesting places where you can re-enact your own Doctor Who moments. For a bit of background: Doctor Who's revival was produced by BBC Wales, so where better to film than their own front door? Across ten years of filming the city has become New York, Pompeii, London and Paris, and plenty of other planets too, so this is your chance to go on a galactic adventure and follow in the footsteps of four Doctors and their companions.
