Do you remember Handles? He was a good Cyberman, if there is such a thing. Well, he wasn't exactly a Cyberman, he was the head of a cyborg that the 11th Doctor bought and refurbished. The Doctor removed all the bad aspects of a Cyberman and was nothing more than the head of a robot that was neither good nor bad, it just was.
The Doctor named the head Handles for obvious reasons and Handles was the Doctor's companion for several centuries when he exiled himself to Christmas. If that didn't make sense then you need to watch the episode called The Time of The Doctor.
What does all that have to do with a wine stopper? Possibly nothing, except that this particular item is a Cyberman wine stopper and I like to think that he was modeled after Handles.
The head is made of pewter which will last for years without rusting. The cork can be inserted into any bottle with a standard sized opening, wine or otherwise, to keep the liquid contents fresh.
This little kitchen gadget deserves a place in any Whovian's kitchen. This would be a great gift for the Doctor Who fan in your life, or yourself if that's you!
There are two types of product links on this page:
- Picture Link - If you can click on a picture it will take you directly to that item on a site like Amazon or Etsy. It is possible that the item is no longer available for sale from the seller I have linked the picture to, which is why I created the second type of link.
- Site Link - When you click on a link to an online store, such as Amazon, eBay, or Etsy, it will take you to that site so you can compare prices for the item seen in the picture. Or, if you are looking at a costume then you might see items similar to the one seen in the picture so you choose the one you like best.
