19th century Edit
21st century Edit
In 2008, during the reign of Elizabeth II, most residents of London left the city out of fear over an alien invasion. Elizabeth II herself chose to stay behind. A starship fashioned to look like the Titanic was about to crash into the palace until the Tenth Doctor, at the controls, managed to avert the disaster. (TV: Voyage of the Damned)
Alternative timelines Edit
In one timeline, Buckingham Palace was the home of Holy Roman Emperor Winston Churchill. He returned to the palace on his mammoth from a conference in Gaul with Cleopatra. (TV: The Wedding of River Song)
Parallel world Edit
Behind the scenes Edit
- According to the book Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale, Russell T Davies' original draft of Voyage of the Damned had the Titanic demolish part of the palace, leading the Queen to curse the Doctor (continuing the recurring recent theme of the Doctor making enemies with British royalty), but this was dropped as too negative for a holiday special. His later script, Turn Left, did allow the ship to destroy the palace, and most of southern England, but in an alternate timeline.
