Lazy Fandom  
I swear, Merlin fandom is making me lazy. I know the location of something that shows up in the episode before I even see the episode. The castle is Caerphilly Castle. Unsurprisingly, it's in Wales, not far from Cardiff.

On an unrelated note, I will not stay in Cardiff, for all that it is convenient and has a castle of its own. The city is a bitch, and whereas with my handy A to Zed it may now be my bitch, it's still a bitch nonetheless.


Edit: Ooh, it's got working siege engines! (The castle, that is, not Cardiff. Not that I necessarily put working siege engines past Cardiff.)

Ah, and I suspect parts of the moat were used for bits of 1x13. Behold.

Oh well. Cardiff has that stupid water tower but I would be amused seeing the Ianto memorial.

*blinks* Stupid water tower? Ianto memorial?

I'm still irked that I've been to Millennium Stadium and haven't yet found the secret entrance to Torchwood. OTOH, considering how much trouble I had even finding Millennium Stadium in the first place (which is across the street from that damned Cardiff Castle, which I also have seen little of, thankyouverymuchCardiff), maybe it should come as no surprise that I haven't found the secret entrance yet.

And here you'd think researching in English would be easier, huh?

Ianto memorial?
The entrance to the tourist office has a shrine where fans leave flowers and cards. After unaware tourists kept asking if there was a boating accident or something, officials finally put up a sign to explain that Ianto Jones is a fictional character.
