DR WHO – Filming in Bute Park

The familiar bright yellow signs emblazoned with the terms ‘LSW’ and ‘LOC2’ led me to Cardiff’s Bute Park.

Travelling through the Downtown area of Los Angeles and meandering through the business, fabric and the Theatre districts – I discovered that I have never felt such a bad vibe from a city ever – this place really un-nerved me!
