A good little filler item for a Dr Who fan. rrp £4.99.
This little device is simply marvellous at alerting you to an incoming missive on your mobile telephone. Sometimes, of course, it's not always possible to answer, for example when you're handing over a debit card at the supermarket or playing an invigorating game of squash. It's at times like these that voicemail is perfect. It's those other times, when it is possible to answer, but not always possible to hear your ringtone, that the mobile, otherwise a truly liberating invention, is among the most frustrating gadgets of all time. That's where the Doctor's handy phone charm comes in. Attached to your mobile by a little lanyard, the miniaturised Tardis contained within performs a merry jig, spinning a full 360 degrees, when there's a mobile signal (for call or SMS) in the air. It's just like Torville and Dean, except with the ability to use dimensions of space/time that humanity has yet to harness. Aficionados of Dr Who can't get enough of these, needless to say, but we believe their functional brilliance makes them destined for even greater things. Put simply, they work too dashed well to just be the preserve of the fans. So go. Buy. And transport yourself sometime else.
