Please forgive me for being stupid but is 1 the most important and 10 the least important on your survey? I'm assuming it is but as you don't state so in the question it isn't clear and if I'm marking something 'out of ten' if I like it obviously it will be graded with a higher number. To reduce the chance of anyone else being a bit confused, I'd suggest it would be a good thing to clarify the point. I will come back and answer the survey later.

I will explain some of the answers I will make now though...

I have previously visited Cardiff, before Roald Dahl Plas and the Millenium Centre were built and my only point of reference from then to now that I remember is the Pier Head building. Though I enjoyed the Castle (and also Castell Goch) there wasn't really anything that made me want to return specifically.

Torchwood changed that.

My next visit was planned in order to visit Torchwood locations with a friend who is also a fan. We'd wanted to go for a while but the perfect opportunity presented itself while John Barrowman was doing panto in Cardiff in 2009 - we got Torchwood and JB in one weekend! Since then, I've been back to Cardiff twice, adding a few more Torchwood locations to our 'places we've visited' each time though Torchwood was only part of the reason for each visit (Clic Sergent event with Ben Loyd Holmes and Ray Holman in 2010 and also 2 Blue Gillespie gigs over the same weekend in 2011 - I would never have given BG a listen if it wasn't for Gareth David Lloyd being the singer as they are generally 'not my thing' so you could say anything Blue Gillespie related is Torchwood related).

We always stay in the same B&B as the people who run it are Torchwood (and Doctor Who) fans.

I visited the Doctor Who exhibition while I was there in 2010 but only because my friend won the tickets at the Clic Sargent event!

I want to go back again this year, maybe with my car, so I can find a few more Torchwood locations that are maybe not easy to find by walking or using the bus.

1 is least important and 10 is most important. Sorry, I should have made that more clear.

Sounds like you've had a few fantastic trips to Cardiff with Torchwood. What are you hoping to do when you come back? Anything in particular, or just see what happens?
