Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote Now Available

Sonic screwdrivers may not do wood, but apparently they’re perfect for switching over to BBC One in time for your favourite SF show!

This nifty scale replica-cum-remote-control is now available from Forbidden Planet. Whilst the price tag might ‘encourage’ you to save your pocket-money for a couple of weeks, the device comes loaded with an array of special features and a Gallifreyan hard case to boot, (alas, no dampers or red settings at this stage!)

Modelled on the Tenth Doctor’s sonic screwdriver, this fully-functioning universal remote control comes with a built-in rechargeable battery, has authentic sound effects lifted straight from the Whoniverse, and a light-up blue tip. It also carries ten secret Morse Code messages for you to discover, so you might want to power up the TARDIS translation matrix.

Available for £69.99, head on over to Forbidden Planet to find out more!

    I think you’ll find this is modelled on the NINTH DOCTORS screwdriver. Why does everyone forget about the 9th Doctor

    • ahem:

      It’s modelled on the version Tennant lent the manufacturer.

      If we’re being precise, the Ninth Doctor’s sonic grip is beige, whereas the Tenth’s a grey.

      No one here has forgotten about the Ninth Doctor. Although, of course, he’s now the Tenth… :O

    So the War Doctor scanned the door in the 50th, and the sonic blew out in ‘Smith and Jones’- and again in ’11 Hour’…
    Will we, the general public finally be able to repair barbed wire?
