Top 5: Doctor Who Themed Knick-Knacks

Doctor Who is simply a fantastic show (we have it as the best time travel tv show and among the best sci-fi shows of the past 25 years).  It also has a lot of fun characters and cool gadgets, which have spawned countless toys and other tchotchkes.  Here's our favorite recent Doctor Who-themed goodies!

5: Cyberman Shower Radio - If you've ever wanted to have a Cyberman in the shower, then this is for you. If not, then it probably isn't--but it still picks up local radio stations *without* telling you you'll be deleted.

4: Plush Adipose - An Adipose is a cute little guy made of fat. This one is made of cotton and polyester.

3: TARDIS Cookie Jar - It's just a cookie jar, but it looks--and sounds(!)--like our favorite Time and Relative Dimension in Space craft. When you're reaching for that last Oreo, you'll be hoping it's bigger on the inside too!

2: Desktop Patrol Dalek - This Dalek will roll around your desk [usually] without falling off. It also screams, "Exterminate!" at every turn.

1: Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control - This is a replica of the current Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, but the cool thing is it actually works! It has multiple settings so you can program it to turn on your television, change channels, record shows, etc., all with a flick of the wrist--literally!

So before you say it, yes, this is a nerd blog at heart.  We promise not to run off a half dozen Star Trek themed posts in a row, but don't expect us to fall too far from our geeky roots!  Like it, hate it, know of other cool Doctor Who stuff?  Let us know in the comments below, and like our page on Facebook to be one of the cool kids.  Or not.

  1. Cyberman bears a striking resemblance to the Rocketeer. Distant cousins, perhaps?
