An exhibition of the BBC Wales sci-fi series Torchwood is being planned just a stone's throw from Captain Jack's underground hub in Cardiff Bay.

The team behind the Doctor Who Up Close exhibition hope to make the most of the spin-off show's Cardiff connection.

Martin Wilkie of Experience Design said: "A Torchwood Exhibition would be a great addition to the Bay area."

Cardiff council is considering plans for an attraction which could open in time for the school summer holidays.

A Georgian building in Bute Crescent has been identified as a possible location for the exhibition.

It will feature elements of the Torchwood Hub, which is fictitiously located below the water tower in Roald Dahl Plass.

Mr Wilkie said: "We have looked at several sites for a Torchwood Exhibition but we are hoping that this one might be available soon.

"The appeal of Torchwood brings many visitors to Cardiff Bay, especially to see the Torchwood Water Tower.

"The building we are hoping to use for the Torchwood Exhibition is near this famous TV landmark and would offer visitors a unique chance to see many of the key props, costumes and even recent creatures from the up-coming 2009 series."

Torchwood: Children Of Earth - a single story told in five parts - will be shown on BBC One Wales at 9pm on five successive nights from Monday 6 to Friday 10 July.

The second series of the hit drama, which has been sold to more than 20 countries, attracted audiences of about 3.4m when it was broadcast on BBC Two in 2008.
