The 21st century was, as Jack Harkness cryptically said, "when everything changes". (TV: Everything Changes) Among other things, the early 21st century was when the whole human race on Earth learned that alien life existed. (TV: The Christmas Invasion)

Earlier chronicled invasions, including those of the Yeti (TV: The Web of Fear) and the Slitheen family (TV: Aliens of London/World War Three), were believed by the general public to have been hoaxes, or otherwise covered up. (TV: Remembrance of the Daleks, World War Three) Others, such as the Racnoss invasion (TV: The Runaway Bride), the disappearance of Royal Hope Hospital (TV: Smith and Jones) and the March of the Adipose (TV: Partners in Crime) were brief in duration.

Most alien encounters, such as the common incursions through the Rift (TV: Everything Changes, Day One, Combat, End of Days, Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, et al.) and conspicuous alien presences in Ealing (TV: Invasion of the Bane, Revenge of the Slitheen, Eye of the Gorgon, Warriors of Kudlak, et al.), though well-known enough to lead to the area being dubbed "the Ealing Triangle" (TV: Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith), were insignificant. However, as alien incursions became more frequent, it became harder to dismiss them, especially the worldwide invasions such as the Battle of Canary Wharf in 2007 (TV: Doomsday) and the Dalek Invasion of Earth in 2009. (TV: The Stolen Earth)

The government publicly opened negotiations with the alien race the 456 in 2009. (TV: Children of Earth: Day Three) Earth was a very tempting target for invasion; by 2009, half of the species from Earth to the Verlixix Spiral Cluster had plans to invade. (TV: Enemy of the Bane)

Miracle Day also affected Earth in this century. (TV: The New World)

In a negated timeline, most people knew and accepted alien life by the 2050s (TV: The Mad Woman in the Attic), although given events early in the century, odds are this fact remains in the restored timeline.

"Lady Me", formerly known as Ashildr, an 9th century Viking girl who was rendered effectively immortal when she was brought back to life by the Twelfth Doctor through a self-repairing Mire repair kit, was known to have lived on Earth up to at least the early part of the 21st century, by which point she was the Mayor of the trap street. (TV: Face the Raven) She would ultimately live all the way to the end of the universe. (TV: Hell Bent)

Specific events Edit

It's left unclear as to whether Big Bang Two (TV: The Big Bang) prevented the unwriting of these events.
