This is the first survey.

ETA: Where there's a scale for ranking, 1 is least important and 10 is most important. Thanks to those who pointed this out to me.

I am from Germany. I visited Cardiff in 2010 and 2011. My main reason each time was to go to the concert of John Barrowman, but even though he performed at many venues, including Royal Albert Hall in London, my friends and me chose Cardiff - of course because of the connection to "Torchwood" and also "Doctor Who". It was lovely to see the places from TV in real live, and I definitely will be back one day.

At the concert I met fans as far as from USA and Australia, so yes, that is a huge draw.

People come from so far away to see him, and it's always great to get the chance to get together. Did you see BluCougar in Cardiff last year? She came over from Australia from it.

Yes, I met BluCougar! With all the people I had written to previously, I had asked for their seat numbers and before the concert started I walked from one to the next and said hello. That was fun.

Flying from Dresden to London directly takes only two hours, but flying into Cardiff takes almost the whole day - as I first have to go to Berlin and then there is a stop in Amsterdam to change planes. Still, coming from Australia takes even longer.
