This review is from: Doctor Who The Doctor's Fob Watch (Toy)I bought this for my 6 year old daughter who is a fairweather Doctor Who fan - shes likes flicking through my Russell T Davies Autobiography and looking at the pictures, and she'll happily sit through the non scarey episodes with me - so you get the picture. So having recently watched both Mr Smith AND the sound of drums trilogy (which both features the watch) about 20 times she was excited about getting the watch. And to be fair, it is what it is, a lump of plastic with a few lights. The watch has a very tiny built in speaker, and when you press the button on the side, it play back a sampled line from Mr Smith. It sounds absolutely rubbish and she even pointed out his voice was too high! Not impressed, they could have got a few different quotes in there instead and cycled them. Also the flap looks like it could easily be broken in the worng hands.
The only metal bit is the chain which adds some quality.
Overall, i guess its a kids toy and kids have great imaginations. I just think its a little expensive for what it is and you could probably pick up a metal watch someone and they can still pretend its the dr who watch! Whatever you do, dont buy this as an adult fan. Buy the proper metal replica collectors watch (about 100 quid and only something like 100 made with certificate) - you'll find it on the internet if you search the collectors sites.
