For generations, the villagers of Brynblaidd engaged in a harvest once every ten years, in which they would murder and eat strangers who came near their village. Around 2007, after they had abducted seventeen victims within a thirty mile radius, Torchwood Three discovered the community, for which Evan Sherman apparently acted as the leader. Soon after, the police arrested the villagers. (TV: Countrycide)
Behind the scenes Edit
Brynblaidd is not actually named on screen in the narrative of Countrycide. It was named in the BBC's original description of the episode however, and therefore has appeared in virtually all subsequent TV listings worldwide. It is also the Welsh for "wolf hill", reflecting the cannibalistic nature of the residents.
