It was built on the remains of old London: while smaller, due to the reduced population, it was greener as many bombsites had been turned into parks. St Paul's Cathedral and Big Ben were two of the few older structures still standing. Susan Foreman and her husband David Campbell lived there. In the early years, it was an independent domain under Lord London. (PROSE: The Five Doctors, Legacy of the Daleks)
In 2200, New London was the capital of New Britain. It was conquered by the malevolent robot Mar-Kom, who froze all of Earth's inhabitants in time. The Doctor liberated the city in 3550. (COMIC: The Eternal Present)
At a time when the entire solar system was inhabited and Earth unified, the United Planets anti-Dalek organisation was headquartered in the United Planet Building, New London. Defence Minister Tal Yorke held a press conference there to announce an anti-Dalek cordon, which the Daleks tried to sabotage. (PROSE: The Secret Struggle)
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The post-Dalek "New London" was introduced in the novelisation of The Five Doctors, in a newly-created scene done to show Susan being abducted. Legacy of the Daleks used the term but altered some of the details, having London as an independent domain rather than part of a "Reconstruction Government".
