What's the best thing to happen to Wales? Now this might cause a few complaints but I'll just put it out there: Doctor Who.
OK, so we might be a teensy bit bias at EG in that it's probably one of the better things in recent times to happen to the commercial property market. The decision to film Doctor Who and Merlin (not mention Torchwood, Being Human and Casualty) at locations in Wales has spurned a whole industry and given the city a sheen of cool,not to mention the BBC's much hailed move to the Roath Basin which came complete with a 215,000 sq ft production facility.
Well today we get to see how it is all put together, complete with Daleks, cybermen and the Silence . This morning the doors swung open at the Doctor Who experience at igloo regeneration's 38-acre Porth Teigr development in Cardiff Bay. There are some great pictures of what to expect here.
Forecasts say it will attract 250, 000 people a year which will undoubtedly have local businesses and hotels rubbing their hands together. And igloo say they've already seen more enquiries from creative businesses who want to be close to the Beeb.
A new series of Doctor Who is currently being filmed in the city. So, who knows, if you wander down there you might even catch a glimpse of the doctor himself.
