Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver (Re-Issue?)

11th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver

Sold out at most places long ago but now newly listed at

The Doctor’s multipurpose tool is a Gallifreyan device, with numerous settings, easily controlled at the press of his thumb. The Doctor has had many sonic screwdrivers of different designs throughout his life, and this latest one was created from within the TARDIS console itself after the previous one was destroyed during a confrontation with Prisoner Zero in the village of Leadworth.


This new sonic is larger, with a luminous green light but continues to be an essential part of the Doctor’s equipment as he explores the universe.
This faithful copy of the Doctor’s trusty Sonic Device has spring loaded extending action. Pressing the button on the side of the handle activates the LED and Sound FX which operates in CLOSED mode. Flip open the cap at the end of the Screwdriver to reveal an additional button that activates the light and sound effects when it is in full extension OPEN mode.

For ages 5 years and over. Requires 3 x L1154 batteries.

Caution, may need re-calibration to work on wood (see 2011 Doctor Who Christmas Special: ‘The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe’).

      i did wonder if that’s what this was,they would sell a lot more if it was advertised as such

      did you order this from the BBC shop and you got the 12th doctor packaging?

      June 16th, 2014 - 6:06pm

      is it the same toy is it tweaked at all

    • booboo

      its the same toy, they are appearing on ebay now but BBC shop say the ones they have are the 11th Doctor version?

      Its genuine but its had no official announcement and seems to be the tail end of series 7 packaging

      no doubt it will be on sale in new packaging later

    • the astronaut of death

      June 16th, 2014 - 6:13pm

      well it is perfect opportunity for more of these to be sold with the 12th doctor using the same one is series 8

      all they need to do is change the packaging and put them on sale as the 12th doctors sonic

      it will make them some good money

    • booboo

      June 16th, 2014 - 6:16pm

      that’s happened already, multiple sellers have the sonic marked as “Twelfth Doctor”

      see here

    • the astronaut of death

      June 16th, 2014 - 6:24pm

      I don’t really see the point the only difference is the sonic and you are not going to keep the packaging are you

  • the astronaut of death

    June 4th, 2014 - 6:39pm

    • Jordie55555

      June 4th, 2014 - 6:46pm

      I would think so. I don’t see the point in re-releasing it though

  • McGann is the Doctor

    June 3rd, 2014 - 12:47pm

  • Radburn

    May 24th, 2014 - 1:20pm

    • Radburn

      May 25th, 2014 - 12:45pm

      @Radburn, try WWD or DWA

    • Jordie55555

      June 4th, 2014 - 6:47pm

      Dwa works best for me

  • Nicholas

    May 24th, 2014 - 10:53am

    Will probably be released under 12th Doctor branding

  • CG

    May 24th, 2014 - 2:21am

    Do you reckon they are releasing it as we’ve seen the 12th doctor using it?

    • Cyber lords

      May 28th, 2014 - 6:37pm

      Most likely, good way to make an extra pound.

    • Jordie55555

      June 4th, 2014 - 6:47pm

      Or lots

  • Sebatron

    May 24th, 2014 - 12:02am

    I hope they give it a less powerful spring.

    • The Living Shadow

      May 29th, 2014 - 9:10pm

      And a fixed soundchip!

    Argh, living in australia and being a whovian is hard work! The nearest abc shop is smack bang in the middle of the city, so is very hard to get to!

    • CG

      May 24th, 2014 - 2:20am

      I have the same problem but have you tried Popcultcha or Mighty Ape?
      I order most of my DW merch off these because I am a fair away from an ABC Shop.

    May 23rd, 2014 - 7:40pm

    Fixed sound-chip?!

  • Explosive Cookie

    May 23rd, 2014 - 4:05pm

    Hmmm, may pick another one of these up for a “Sonic Cane” custom I’ve been thinking of.

    Awesome! Hope there is a re- issue as I collect sonics. Booboo, do you know if they will be at the shop in the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff.

    • booboo

      May 23rd, 2014 - 4:32pm

    • Professor Peacock
