2005: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, War of the Worlds, King Kong, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Batman Begins released in the cinemas; Erasure release Nightbird, Antony and the Johnsons release I Am a Bird Now, Tori Amos released The Beekeeper, Kaiser Chiefs release Employment, New Order release Waiting for the Siren’s Call and Doctor Who returned to our screens on Saturday evenings.

One of the most interesting bits of merchandise released for me this year were the character walkie-talkies which were two figurines of the ninth Doctor and Slitheen that also doubled as walkie-talkies.

They really need to be seen to be believed. I have these but they have never been opened so I can’t say how well they worked as walkie-talkies but they certainly are a talking point that’s for sure.
