On 30 November 1874, Winston Churchill was born. (AUDIO: Young Winston)

In 1936, the Crystal Palace was destroyed in a fire. (COMIC: The Eagle of the Reich, The Crystal Palace) By one account, this was done by a hatched phoenix. The Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory Williams came to the Palace at this time, although they had intended to visit it in 1851, and met up with Winston Churchill. (COMIC: The Eagle of the Reich) Another account indicated that the fire was started by the Tenth Doctor and Heather McCrimmon in order to defeat Victumas and the Dominion Sisterhood. (COMIC: The Crystal Palace) Ibrahim Hadmani travelled back in time to witness the destruction of the Crystal Palace. (PROSE: Tomorrow's Fish and Chips)

At an unknown point in the 21st century, there was an unusually intense electrical storm in Moscow. As a consequence, the Somnus Foundation clinic burned to the ground. Meanwhile, Lena and Alexi Korolev's mother died, because Lena turned off the electricity powering her life support devices. (AUDIO: Singularity)
