New Torchwood series shows off Swansea and Gower
Swansea-born writer features his hometown in new BBC series
Sci-Fi super scribe Russell T Davies says he cannot wait to show off his stomping ground to millions of American television viewers.
The 47-year-old writer has been back in his home town of Swansea as film crews began shooting new episodes of hit BBC show Torchwood. The fourth series of the drama is set to be its biggest yet, and the first to be co-produced by a US TV network.
Speaking on location in Rhossili, Russell said he was thrilled to be putting Gower on the small screen. "There are so many good locations in Wales, and I love coming back to Swansea," he said. "I'm immensely proud of where I'm from and quite like the opportunity to show places like Rhossili to the world. There have been a number of episodes of Doctor Who and Torchwood which have been filmed in Swansea, and I plan to keep that up. I don't think I'll ever run out of places to film here because there are so many great ones."
One location set to feature in the new series is the Old Rectory in Rhossili.
