This is only my third journal entry of 2009. I'm not exactly prolific, am I?

My recent visit to Cardiff was very Whoniversey and I decided to put together a collection of particularly Doctor Who/Torchwood related pics. The photos are mine, the screencaps come from The Medusa Cascade.

All of the pictures will get somewhat bigger if you click on them, and the commentary contains spoilers for Torchwood: Children of Earth and may contain spoilers for any episodes of Doctor Who or Torchwood that come before that. Enjoy!

I recently went up to Hamilton to visit some friends who live in the city. Since I had time on my hands between arriving there and meeting up with them, I visited a couple more RE2 shooting locations. As with my previous entry involving locations shot in Toronto, the "real life" pictures of Hamilton are all mine, so please do not reproduce or distribute them without my permission. I also took the screencaps from the DVD myself, for illustrative purposes. Click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.

First location: Raccoon City Street Where Carlos and Co. Fought Zombies (aka John Street North, by the King Street PizzaPizza)

On walking up John St from the parking lot towards King St E, I immediately recognized this part of the street:

 
as the location where they shot all of the footage of Carlos and his men fighting zombies in the street and blowing shit up, like this:

But really, no back-up was coming. They had no choice but to blow up John Street, I reflected... then ate lunch in the PizzaPizza. Mmmmmm PizzaPizza pizza. PizzaPizza veggie pizza and chocolate milk is zombie-fighting fuel, okay?

On my recent visit to Toronto to appear on CBC's Test The Nation, I had a free Monday waiting for my 7pm train and spent it wandering around the city, including filming locations used in Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Some photos below. The "real life" pictures of Toronto are all mine, so please do not reproduce or distribute them without my permission. I also took the screencaps from the DVD myself, for illustrative purposes. Click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.

First location (and preview): Ravensgate Bridge (aka The Bloor Viaduct).

I didn't get a chance to go down into the Don Valley to get a side view of the bridge (it was -20 degrees Celsius outside!!), but even so, it's pretty clear that this:


is where they filmed these scenes.
