History Edit

During a visit to the 1970s, Tom noted that Canary Wharf hadn't been built yet. (PROSE: Verdigris)

During the 1990s, Veronica Stackmore's uncle worked at Canary Wharf. (COMIC: Imaginary Enemies)

For some time before and after the the change-over from 1999 to 2000, the tower was occupied by Ashley Chapel and his company, Ashley Chapel Logistics, though there was little affluence out of the corporate offices. For a brief time after the change-over, due to Chapel's use of the Millennium Codex, a triangular area of London was warped by the interaction of the laws of three different universes into an expanse called the Great Kingdom. One Canada Place marked one of the triangle's corners. (PROSE: Millennial Rites)

In the early morning of 1 January 2005, the newly regenerated Eleventh Doctor, flew west across Canary Wharf whilst clinging by his fingers from his TARDIS' door sill, before climbing back aboard and being thrown nearly nine years back in time to April 1996. (TV: The Eleventh Hour)
