To celebrate the upcoming series Doctor Who staring Jodie Whittaker, I’m attempting to chronicle all the mobile phones used in previous shows.
If you think you’ve spotted something that’s not listed here, or think I’ve made a mistake, drop it in the comments.
You can follow along with all 10 series.
The Christmas Invasion
Only one phone of note here. The Sycorax speech is translated by Alex’s device.
That’s a handy view of an HP iPAQ H2210
Mickey – School Reunion
Rose’s on-again-off-again boyfriend gets an upgrade!
If I’m not mistaken, a Nokia 6260
Note the space bellow the screen, the central ridge on the keypad, and the black side button. Finally Rickey has a cameraphone!
Rose – Rise of the Cybermen
Rose has dumped her old phone! No doubt it gets its own spin-off series on BBC 9.
The venerable Samsung D500.
2021 Update! Doomsday
In the comments, Brandon points out that this episode has a couple of phones!
Jackie Tyler hands her phone over to the Doctor.
That’s a really distinctive phone. Those silver swirls going from front to back mean this is the Nokia 7260.
And it is used to call Rose – who still has her Samsung.
That’s it for Season 2 – very light on the phone action. If you think I’ve missed any, let me know.
Don’t worry, S03 has loads!
