Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge in 1984. (TV: Resurrection of the Daleks)

Tower Bridge was a London bridge, over which people could cross the River Thames. The road which crossed the bridge was called Tower Bridge Road. While its northern landfall was located just beyond the eastern wall of the Tower of London, (TV: The Lie of the Land) its southern landfall was located in the London Borough of Southwark.[1]

Tower Bridge was seen on a map of London used during the Monk invasion of the late 2010s. (TV: The Lie of the Land)

Alternate realities Edit

A building which resembled Tower Bridge from N-Space existed in Pete's World. It was in a similar location to its N-Space counterpart. (TV: Rise of the Cybermen)

Behind the scenes Edit

VFX shots of the CyberKing in London, in 2009's The Next Doctor, had to be fixed by The Mill after producer Susie Liggat noticed that 1851 London contained the Tower Bridge, which wouldn't be built for another four or so decades.[2]

Footnotes Edit

  1. London Map RotS

    The location of City and Southwark on Mr Smith's map. (TV: Revenge of the Slitheen)

    The map in The Lie of the Land shows the north end of Tower Bridge as being either within or close to the east of the City of London. When viewed in conjunction with the map of London boroughs seen in Revenge of the Slitheen, this would definitively place the southern end of Tower Bridge in Southwark.
