Mini Ten met Big Ten in Cardiff  
Following mini!Ten's excursion to Blackpool to see his big self's alter ego David Tennant switch on the Illuminations, he decided to go to Cardiff with todd_loves_mc to visit filming locations for Doctor Who and Torchwood. He made a new friend, Bear Ten, during his two days.

Of course, being in Cardiff he had to do the tourist thing outside the Millenium Centre:

He wanted to go in to the Norwegian Church of Art & Craft for lunch, but they had finished serving when we got there:

anyone for tea?

He visited the Exhibition and got Up Close with his big version's attire. This wasn't the closest he got during the trip, either:

when I grow up

He paid Torchwood hub a visit, but the door was closed:

start spreading the news

He stood where he thought he was re-enacting the end of LOTTL, saying goodbye to Jack:

come with me

He had a very panoramic shot of the Plass:

As well as an entourage shot of all the 'mini Tens':

He felt tired after all that, so stayed in my pocket for the rest of the day, which included a two hour walk in the dark to find live filming in Cathays Park, but to no avail. He settled for a cup of tea at Ty Rosa, our Doctor Who friendly B&B:

Big tea

So a new day dawned, and being the perfectionist he is, he revisited previous photo-shoots for better angles. First up, the invisible lift now he wouldn't get wet:

no-one can see me

I helped him be in the right place for the end of LOTTL:

I love my coat

He was determined to find live filming, so we went back to Cathays Park and managed to locate the Temple of Peace. Lucky for us, Big Ten wanted to see my cosplay outfit, so came out to meet us. Mini!Ten was feeling incredibly shy (you can just see his hand), so he hid under my coat, only to be pressed up against his bigger self:

Ten hug!

All in all, a very enjoyable outing.

Wow - looks like you had a blast! And of course having DT fanboy your totally amazing outfit must have been the highlight of the YEAR!

Can I ask, where might one obtain a Tenbear? Because a totally terrific friend gave me a gorgeous Rosebear, all dressed up from "Dalek" and I would *love* to reciprocate with a Tenbear (or actually maybe even two - so my Rosebear won't be lonely - grin).

Sadly, Ten Bear belongs to todd_loves_mc, not me. However, the bear itself is from the Bear Factory, along with the tortie specs, black converses and black pinstripes. The fawn overcoat was made by todd_loves_mc. He even has two hearts in his chest. :)
