classicsonic1 The Description…

The Third Doctor spent much of this incarnation exiled on earth .

Sophisticated and elegant this Doctor was more of a pure scientist than his predecessors, surrounded by gadgets and vehicles.

But whether aiding UNIT against invasion or travelling to distant planets his kindness and belief in peace was rarely stronger.

    Brought it for £10 pounds at the MCM expo. Its great! I wish they are metal and the sound effects are the same sounds as the tennant screwdriver. It does`nt sound the same is in the show which is sort of annoying but its retroness makes up for it!

    I love it! But 1 thing annoys me, about all these screwdrivers! Their not metal! I don’t really mind, but its what gives the feel of it being a prop! I know its a toy, but its a replica!

    Wooh that would be so cool if they did make another one! I may even paint over it to make it unique for ME as the Doctor (ever played dress-up to a convention of sorts?).

    I have had this sonic screwdriver for a few months now and i must say, it’s a great toy, replica. really recommended. It is plastic but it still is brilliant, just hoping that more classic sonic screwdrivers are on the way.
