Cardiff is now one of the top centers of television production. Less than a decade ago such a statement would have been met by gales of laughter. But people aren’t laughing now. The BBC has produced some its biggest shows of the 21st century in the Welsh capital, including “Doctor Who”, “Torchwood”, “Sarah Jane Adventures”, “Casualty”, and “Upstairs Downstairs”.
