Torchwood One, based in London, was Torchwood’s head office and operated out of Torchwood Tower, located within One Canada Square, the tallest of the three Canary Wharf skyscrapers, although it carried out operations across London, including beneath the Thames Barrier and through front organizations such as “H. C. Clements”. Torchwood One also owned a Torchwood Holding Facility which was then abandoned in 1995. To those that have come in contact with Torchwood, they are primarily believed to be a special forces team.The beam which destroyed the Sycorax ship was fired from five different locations around London, suggesting a number of properties are owned by Torchwood One in the area. The tower installations were destroyed during the events of “Doomsday”. According to the Torchwood website, there were 823 members of staff, of which only 27 were known to have survived. In the wake of the “Battle of Canary Wharf”, Her Majesty ordered the immediate closure of Torchwood One.
