Welcome back, friends! I’ve identified all of the mobile phones used in every episode of Doctor Who! This post looks at S11 – starring Jodie Whittaker – but feel free to rummage in the archives.
The Woman Who Fell to Earth
A great crop of phones for the inaugural episode – and some mysteries.
Ryan’s phone looks like a Samsung of some flavour, but it is hard to say. Grace has a modern iPad – probably a mini.
Ryan’s phone seen from behind doesn’t offer much more of a clue.
He does have a habit of answering it when it is clearly locked and not receiving a call!
That screen is typical of Samsungs.
Yaz is rocking an iPhone.
Lots of iPhones have a similar camera configuration, but the only one with a silver ring around the lens is the 6+
Grace has this odd device. Based on the grill at the bottom, I thought it might be an iPhone – but it appears to have a central camera. And iPhones typically have the speaker on the bottom right – this one is on the bottom left.
The calling screen appears to have a row of icons – most un-iPhone like.
Is Grace's phone a Oneplus 3 I wonder? pic.twitter.com/xzBgOSj1X5— Chris (@cg_341) December 15, 2019
Technically, no phones. But The Doctor lets slip that she’s given Elvis a phone. Elvis has, of course, lent the phone to Frank Sinatra.
Graham poses as Steve Jobs…
We’re here to pitch an invention. It’s a telephone that plays music and it’s a camera also takes photos. And it’s a calendar. And it sends letters…
Arachnids in the UK
An Earth-bound episode, so lots of phone action.
Still rocking the same iPhone from the first episode.
An iPhone 7+ or 8+ judging by the camera layout.
The bottom connector and grilles show this to be the iPhone 5s. One of her daughter’s hand-me-ups, no doubt!
A curious one this. The back looks completely flat, with very curvy corners.
Not a clue what it is!
Our Trump-wannabe briefly holds this before losing it to the spiders.
I think it’s the same as Frankie’s. Obviously a corporate deal!
Rare for The Doc to hold a phone!
The same model as Naji’s. Where did she get it from…?!
Mitch has a Samsung.
There are hundreds of similar models. I’m pretty sure it’s a J2.
Lin also has a Samsung, but I can’t quite place it. Perhaps a J7?
Lovely to see the continuity department doing a bang-up job on the dates on the phones – all set to the 1st of January 2019.
First time seeing Graham using a phone:
Just an iPhone.
Great shot of The Doc on Yaz’s phone:
…and that’s it for this season. I can’t wait for the next one!
