St Davids 2
Cardiff, Wales

Formerly known as NCP Tredegar Street

The St. Davids 2 building project is (currently) the largest private financial investment in Wales, and covering some 1.4m sq feet is also one of the largest shopping centre developments in the UK. As well as retail, the site also aims to create affordable appartments within the area. It is due to open on 22nd October 2009.

The development has meant that a number of Doctor Who related locations have been lost, most prominent being the former NCP Tredegar Street car park, which featured in the opening scenes of Everything Changes. Others include a parade of shops seen in Love & Monsters, and potentially means the remaining part of St David's Market could also be lost, too!

Production Notes:

»

The use of the car park roof for The Christmas Invasion doesn't seem to have been documented in the Series Two Companion; it is possible that the filming was undertaken at the same time as other rooftop scenes on 8th August 2005, or the background is actually green-screen work undertaken on 16th August.

General Details:

2007: The NCP Tredegar Street car park was demolished in early 2007 as part of the redevelopment of the area for St Davids 2
