  • Big Ben is a Gargantuan timepiece. Big Ben was originally an extremely tall British champion. Born in Newcastle in 1705, he was 80 feet tall and had an uncanny ability for telling the time without looking at his watch. This was very useful to the British army, as they never missed a tea break, even though all they did was drink tea and send suckers from the countries they had conquered to conquer more countries and expand their great Empire. The major misconception is that the Big is an innuendo, it is actually rather small. His most famous battle was the Great Tea Bag flinging campaign of 1748, in which he threw vast quantities of teabags at Jimmy the Blind, Jacobite Pretender, for 5 consecutive days, finally ending with a flurry of finest Harrogate scones. And yet, this was not the most

And yet, this was not the most amazing thing about Ben. For you see, tea bags were not invented for another two centuries. After the death of Big Ben (now Baron Ben of Byker) in the Terrible Fish Shower of 1801, King Partario of England took Big Ben's hardly-used pocket watch and built in into a tower in London by the Thames. Over the years, many strange events have occurred around the tower, usually involving people getting hit in the face by soggy tea bags, seemingly from nowhere. However their have been rumors of Members of Paliament launching tea bags out of the windows of Wetminster with slingshots to commemorate the life of Big Ben. It used to be that points were scored by hitting the largest, slowest targets available, until a stop was put to this by the American Embassy. By 2050, the tower is expected to be destroyed after a peculiar incident occurs involving the ghost of Margaret Thatcher and some tea bags. The Complete Terrorist's Guide to London

She explained that it accounted for her acute sense of time. (TV: The Snowmen) Later during the 1890s, a Tyrannosaurus rex, having been accidentally sent to the Thames after swallowing the Doctor's TARDIS, advanced on Big Ben before being encircled by the efforts of Scotland Yard using a series of sonic lanterns provided by Madame Vastra. The Half-Face Man, who had later murdered the dinosaur, met his end impaled on the spire of Big Ben after falling from his hot-air balloon in a confrontation with the Twelfth Doctor, with his top hat falling down the tower. (TV: Deep Breath) In 1924, Shade Vassily planned to use Big Ben to power his ship. (PROSE: The Clockwise Man) In January 1941, Jack Harkness tethered his ship to Big Ben. (TV: The Empty Child) In 1976, Big Ben's clock face was bombed by Black Star. (PROSE: Love and War, No Future) On 1 January 2005, the Eleventh Doctor barely avoided crashing his TARDIS into Big Ben as he attempted to stabilise it following his regeneration. (TV: The Eleventh Hour) In 2006, Big Ben was destroyed by a Slitheen craft, which sheared it in half. (TV: Aliens of London) This was seen by Elton Pope among many witnesses. (TV: Love & Monsters) Reconstruction proceeded shortly afterwards. (TV: The Christmas Invasion) Shortly after Big Ben was rebuilt, the last Steggosian attempted to release a deadly poison from the tower, but the Tenth Doctor stopped him. (PROSE: The Eyeless) In 2167, the chimes of Big Ben rang for the first time in years to celebrate the end of the 22nd century Dalek invasion after the First Doctor defeated the Daleks. Despite the initial bombardment prior to the invasion, Big Ben was unscathed. It still stood thirty years later. (TV: The Dalek Invasion of Earth, PROSE: Legacy of the Daleks) By the 28th century, Big Ben had been destroyed. (TV: "Strangers in Space") In 4039, Big Ben was again destroyed in the Graxnix invasion of Earth. (COMIC: Hotel Historia)

  • Of course you can find the Hello-Kitty-version of the Big Ben in the HKO-version of London. You cannot get in at first, but will have to discover the key foremost. Dear Daniel is sleeping inside the Big Ben - and has something he wants you to do as soon as he is awake of course. Big Ben is the clocktower in London. It is in Central London. The "real" Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London - as well as for the clock tower and its clock (the Great Clock of Westminster). Big Ben was the largest four-faced clock in the world for a very long time. Now it is only the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world, since the Allen-Bradley Clock Tower in Milwaukee doesn't have chimes. The tower was built after the old Palace of Westminster (1288) was destroyed by fire on October 16th in 1834. The clock tower was a prison in old times, and it is not open to "overseas" visitors. Only UK-residents will get a tour and can climb the 334 limestone stairs to the top of the 96,3 m tall tower. The first 61 m are made of brickstones clad with limestone, the top is made from iron. The architectural style is called "Gothic revival". The tower leans a bit to the north-west because the ground has changed afer tunneling. The clocks first ticking started on May 31th 1859. The name "Big Ben" could originate either from Sir Benjamin Hall (he watched over the installation of the Great Bell) or Benjamin Caunt (an English boxing Champion). The hour hand of the clock is 2,7 m long and the minute hand 4,3 m. Charles Barry was the chief architect of the Palace and August Pugin the designer of the clock and dials (it was Pugins last work before his death). The clock faces are made of 312 pieces of opal glass framed in iron, 7 m in diameter. The latin words for "Oh Lord, keep our Queen Victoria I. safe" can be read at the base of each clock face. The main bell (the Great Bell) was originally a 16-ton hour bell, cast on August 6th 1856 in Stockton-on-Tees. The bell was then transported drawn by 16 horses. But it cracked while being tested and had to be recast at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, as a 13-ton bell now. It is 2,2 m tall x 2,9 m wide. It first chimed in July 1859. But it cracked as well only two months later. Maybe because the hammer that was used had more than twice the fitting weight for the bell. Three years later the bell was "repaired" by chipping out a piece and letting the new hammer strike it at a different place. Big Ben still has its crack and therefore chimes with an odd twang. Its sound is also called "The Voice of Britain". Until 1881 Big Ben was the largest bell on the British Isles. There are also four quarter bells in the tower that chime the Cambridge Chimes, perhaps a variation of Händel's "Messiah". Their words go: "all through this hour, Lord be my guide, and by thy power, no foot shall slide". This is also written on a plaque on the wall of the clock room. The clock is famous for its reliability. The clockwork mechanism weighs 5 tons. There is a small stack of old pennys (coins) on top of the pendulum which adjust the time. Adding or removing a penny will change the clocks speed.
