Just in case ...

... You're running a story on this: The British paper that is switching to a tab Monday is known as the Times of London. But its official name is simply the Times. So watch what you italicize (if you do such a thing to newspaper titles).

On other papers I have worked on The Times was the only masthead to take a capital on the definite article. Cultural cringe I guess.

How about "the Times, of London, ..."?

Of course, if your style is to lowercase the "The," there's nothing wrong with calling it the London Times (or, if you use italics, the London Times). I'm tempted to call "the Times of London" an affectation, but I'll allow that the formulation is so common it gets points for recognizability.
