The Doctors Nano Recorder – Pictures

The Doctors Nano-Recorder

Record secret messages and play them back using this replica Nano-recorder and save yourself from the Silent! Features lights, sound effects and ten second voice record. Requires 2 x AAA Batteries (not included). 5+

RRP £14.99 Expected 28 June 2011.

The packaging… The nano recorder has a much more silver metal and heavily weathered finish than the promo images suggest…

The actual Nano recorder itself… Two AAA batteries which fit in the hand grip are needed for the voice recording, lights and sound…

You hold the button in on the side and start recording your message when the “beep” sounds. To play it back you pull the trigger twice. I am no expert on these things but the voice recording was much better than i was expecting.

The official images…

    This looks really good. How many recordings can you do before the memory is full? To record a new sound does it remove the old one? Also can you delete sounds you no longer want?

    • booboo

      June 30th, 2011 - 1:16pm

      It records for 20 seconds max and completely records over any previous recording

      It does not record for 20 seconds it records for only 10 seconds.
      It only costs 14.99 pounds.

    It was a bit of a silly idea to make this as a toy, many fans would love to see River’s blaster (which actually is a gun and isn’t just shaped like one), it gets more screen time and would be more loved than something that is on screen for about 2 minutes or less.

    • Rhys

      June 28th, 2011 - 8:26am

    • TC

      June 28th, 2011 - 4:02pm

      Correct! Stamp collecting is boring!

    • booboo

      June 28th, 2011 - 4:59pm

    I dont see every comment had i have done so i would have deleted it but there is no need to be so rude and call me unprofessional. I dont get paid for this and i am not on this site 24 hours a day and cant see everything. all you had to do was contact the site and it would have been deleted. Your comment is uncalled for. I go out of my my to help people as much as i can and this is the thanks i get because i missed one comment.

      It is the doctor’s, but it’s not a gun it’s a nano recorder. I thought it was gun as well 🙂

      For those wondering, the Nano-Recorder is the Gun-Injection type device the Doctor uses in Day of the Moon. From a viewers point of view, we seen the events the Characters remembered. For example:
      .In ‘Graystark Orphanage’, when Amy is in the Ward, she runs from one end of the room to the other. In that space of about 3-seconds, she had about a one minute encounter with a Silent. Yet, to her and the viewers, it ‘never happened’. That’s where the Nano Recorder comes in; it records every message of speech you have to yourself or a conversation wi

      I wouldn’t think so because it is a gun, this is a recording device that happens to look like a gun
