Sonic Screwdriver Day of the Doctor

Rare Tenth Doctor Millennium FX Sonic Screwdriver Replica On EBay

An exceedingly-rare sonic screwdriver replica, made by Millennium FX, is up for auction on eBay.

The replica prop, the only officially licensed by the BBC, is limited to just 500 pieces and, created in 2009, sold out in 2010, just as the Eleventh Doctor began his reign. MFX, who provided the props for the entire Tenth Doctor era, used these limited edition pieces for The Day of the Doctor.

It comes with a small plinth to display it, alongside a Prop Replica Certificte, TARDIS Holodisk to show authenticity, and paperwork from creator, Neill Gorton on how to look after your sonic.

The seller further says:

“Before the anniversary special aired there was much debate over whether the colour of the crackle effect of the MFX replica was true to the original prop as it appears to be slightly yellower than some of the sonics used in the early Tennant episodes. Some of the 500 owners decided to have their sonics professionally recoloured to look more ‘screen accurate’. Fortunately for the owners that chose not to change the colour, one of the original 500 ‘yellower’ sonics was used for the 50th anniversary episode (the greatest and most watched episodes ever made) not only making it 100% screen accurate but also from the same production run as the screen used prop. Gold dust in collecting terms! Because so many people changed the colour it means there is even less than 500 original unadulterated versions out there.”

At the time of writing, it’s not reached its reserve, despite having 11 bids so far.

Anyone here plan on bidding? It ends on 31st May!
