One of the more strange releases this year was a TARDIS Telephone.
This was an actual working telephone in a police box exteriors styled to look like an old fashioned phone which actually looks very nice.
When the phone rings the lamp on top flashes blue.
Not necessarily Doctor Who related this is quite a nice piece of merchandise for fans of Doctor Who, police boxes and retro telephone alike.
