The Edifice was a massive building filled with luxury suites. From the outside, the Edifice was spherical with rows and rows of rooms, each surrounded by scaffolding. It orbited a mauve star. It was surrounded by an atmosphere sleeve to keep in the air. The Edifice also had a translator which converted names to more pronounceable forms and a self-repair system. Inside, the building seemed to be filled with hallways which stretched out into infinity.
The interior was spatially warped, increasing the space inside. The elevators were also spatial warped, allowing them to reach any floor or room. Each room had a bedroom with a walk-in-closest, a dining room and a kitchen with food replicator. The window showed a holocination from the inhabitant's past, with more than one person creating a mixed view. The advertisement was done with viral transmissions, which produced holograms of sharply dressed men. These transmissions were transmitted across the universe and were a form of advanced spam.
Locations come in all shapes and sizes. But we've made it exceedingly easy to figure out how to start looking up locations. Just go to category:locations, and start working your way down.
Wanna see whether there have been DWU stories set in your neck of the woods? A good place to start might be our categories about regional governments. Take a stroll through:
(And yes, we know there are more places than this in the world, but it's a start!)
We like to study the natural features of the DWU. So take a look at:
- Columbia Plateau
- Tar pit
- Mercury swamp
- Bodies of water
- Devil's Elbows Canyon
- Fafnir's Crest
- Glade of Everdell
- Cliffs of Oblivion
- Ley line
- Sky aqueduct
- Singing Towers
- Amalfi Coast
- Ash ocean
- Clone bank
- Singing stone
- Tendurek Formation
- Great Prairie
Sometimes, you want to look at places in terms of whether a specific incarnation of the Doctor has visited there. We've tried to make that easy by offering up a whole branch of categories under locations visited by the Doctor. Want to discover the planets visited by the Third Doctor because you thought he was exiled to Earth and never went anywhere? Or maybe you're interested in what cities the Tenth Doctor went to.
Sure, the Doctor spends a heck of a lot of his time exploring Earth. But quite a lot is known about the geography of other worlds, too. Check out category:locations by planet to visit places like Skaro's Ocean of Ooze, or the great Martian cities or places to see on New Earth.
You've heard of trainspotters? Well, we're street spotters around here. Seriously, we love our city infrastructure, but especially streets. Yes, we tend to care most about English streets, but believe it or not, we know quite a lot about how to get around streets in Buenos Aires, thanks to Torchwood: Miracle Day. (So that's one good thing about that series.)
