Top five likely locations for Dollhouses in London. What venues would you choose for your local town or city?

Canary Wharf? Torchwood and Dollhouse in the same location? Could be bad for business.

I like the idea of being underneath MI5, though.
I always thought there would be one under the Prudential Building in Boston.
In the Raleigh-Durham area, I'd put it under SAS Institute (large, privately held software company) because I can totally see the owner being involved in this.
Given the prostitution side of the dollhouse, under the gherkin makes sense - nothing says sex like a building shaped a bit like a big willy.

Though if it were under e.g. St Pancras that might explain why it took so bloody long to renovate it.
Pittsburgh: Beneath the mysteriously closed Stanwyx Street T station. Supposedly this relatively recently constructed station had to be rebuilt and relocated nearby for the benefit of the (dubious) North Shore Connector Project...but it's very unclear why.
I always considered Belfast City Hospital to be an ideal Ministry of Love but it would be perfect for an austere Dollhouse that dominated the skyline.
Selfridges would be good as my friend works there and it does seem to have that excessive employee control that borders on the robotic.

St. Pancreas would make sense. Nobody would be able to find it as they'd get lost in all the tunnels. Such a nightmare of a station to go through.
The top of the Get Carter car park in Gateshead.

So true. I did get seriously turned around there on one of my London visits a few years back.
The Barbican. Nobody there gets out alive.
Actually the design of the Barbican is kind of Dollhousey. There's that eeiry empty vibe to it.

Although I've made it out of there alive :p
Yeah me too but maybe partly because I didn't realise I was in the Barbican at the time and so was psychically shielded (I was actually looking for Smithfield, where you buggers killed William Wallace. You know who you are ;).

(amazing to think that places like that and tower-blocks etc. were actually specifically designed to instill a sense of community, they were supposedly like villages in the sky. Sometimes you have to wonder about architects)
In London? Underneath the Houses of Parliament. Or Downing Street. No politics related rant here - no siree!
In London? Underneath the Houses of Parliament.

Would the actives be named after Guy Fawkes co-conspirators?
Fawkestrot ?

Although I've made it out of there alive :p


Or did you?!

Yes, you probably did.

When you put it like that it does begin to sound less plausible.
