      Plaques presented at Torchwood's Ianto Jones 'shrine'

      Feb 17 2010 by Simon Gaskell, South Wales Echo

      DIEHARD fans of a fictional Torchwood character
      have presented two plaques at a shrine dedicated to him.

      Fans were so saddened when Ianto Jones, played by
      Welsh actor Gareth David-Lloyd, was killed off
      that they set up a real-life memorial in July
      outside the Torchwood tourist office in Mermiad Quay, Cardiff Bay.

      Now they have handed over plaques to thank
      Mermaid Quay staff for keeping the tribute in
      such good condition during the recent harsh weather.

      The presentation was part of a programme of
      events organised by the Save Ianto Jones campaign
      – a group dedicated to getting the character back onto our screens.

      Campaign members met Peter Black AM yesterday
      morning after he voiced his support for them,
      before going on to the shrine, where they placed hundreds of new items.

      The BBC suffered a furious backlash from fans
      when they decided to kill off the character and
      the campaign has organised a range of events to
      lobby for his return, starting with the pilgrimage to Mermaid Quay.

      Lee Simmonds, Mermaid Quay centre manger, said:
      "We support anything to do with local talent and
      production and we will do our best to keep the shrine undisturbed.

      "We pride ourselves on keeping Mermaid Quay neat
      and tidy and enjoyable for everybody. We get
      international visitors, there are mementos and
      things left there from all around the world and
      it is good for Mermaid Quay, Cardiff Bay and Cardiff."
