Okay, so I’m a day late–yesterday kind of got away from me–but, as promised, it’s back to light-hearted pop culture posts:
This season’s BBC Shop catalog lists a Bad Wolf TARDIS portable Bluetooth speaker, a TARDIS dual USB power bank, and a TARDIS Qi Wireless charging pad. Remember when the Doctor Who pages were just full of episodes on VHS?
Doctor Who merchandising has whole-heartedly embraced the digital age (and what would you expect, catering to the wants of a bunch of sci-fi nerds?). It is particularly appropriate since the airing of the Eleventh Doctor’s premier episode, which used a smartphone to save the planet.
For Tenth Doctor fans, here’s the trailer for “Around the World in 80 Days” starring David Tennant as Phileas Fogg: https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/clips/around-the-world-in-80-days-trailer/
