Sonic Tea Leaf

At my last job, I palmed a little plastic beaker holder on my way out of the door – it seems that departing Doctor Who star David Tennant went for something a little more hi-tech…

Speaking at the press screening of The Waters of Mars last Friday, David Tennant revealed that he has stolen a sonic screwdriver prop – although he’s apparently concerned about getting found out!

“You’re not allowed. You really aren’t allowed.

“I put it in a secure location because I suddenly got worried my house would get burgled and I’d lose it, so I’ve locked it up somewhere.”

Hmm. You wouldn’t catch the Doctor revealing he’s stolen something he shouldn’t to a newspaper unless he had a very clever plan…

Still, at least David will be able to use his sonic screwdriver for a range of practical uses – to detect breaches in the universe, get money out of a cash machine, go on the internet, change the weather, break glass and use it as a torch. Well, the last one at least.
