Abstract

This article is about Russell T. Davies’s decidedly grown-up Dr Who spin off Torchwood and Cardiff, the city in which it’s set: specifically the ways in which two seasons of inveterately Welsh misadventures in science fiction depict Cardiff as a pansexually and a decidedly postcolonial gothic location; a site at which historically embedded discourses of identity politics (specifically those to do with sexuality and nationhood) are purposefully deconstructed - with often hilarious, or wildly erotic, or erotically wild and hilarious consequences.
