During its heyday in the 1960s the UK was bombarded with all sorts of products related to the cult science fiction series Doctor Who. With a successful new series going strong – a third season is about to start next week – it is no wonder that a mini-wave of product tie-ins is being released. The latest include Doctor Who Phone Charms, which feature a miniature Tardis (forever stuck in the shape of a London Police Box) or a Dalek, the Doctor’s ultimate nemesis. When a call comes in the charms flash and spin. Available exclusively from Firebox.com for $9.95 each or both for $17.95, these will work when the phone is silent mode, so you won’t miss that incoming call from the Doctor, or just your doctor’s office.
