    i know of a way to mix the pen sonic with the day of the doctor sonic. you need to detach the emitter and core to change the batteries. so take the body of the pen sonic and the emitter and core of the day of doctor sonic, then you should have an accurate toy. thought you guys would like to try that.

    A fan said on this page that “1st edition was very light pink” does anyone happen to have a picture or is anyone able to confirm this?

    This literally just arrived in the post!

    I love it! It is really nice! It’s a little bit of a shame that the sound FX are the exact same ones from the last release – but that’s not a big issue.

    The new casing and yellow wires is lovely, and the photo really doesn’t do it justice!

    Now I just need to buy a new original Tenth Doctor Sonic and my collection is complete! Should be able to find one cheap on eBay, no doubt.

      where did you order if from?

    • Sam Richard Bentley

      July 7th, 2014 - 11:05am

      BBC Shop! I pre-ordered it way back when they announced it, and it was only just released today!

      BBC Shop are good on orders, they either come early – or if you pre-order they will come on the day that it was being released!

      I mean, I ordered mine alongside the already released Fifth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. That got dispacthed the next day, and I got it a couple days later.

      This, the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic, was dispatched, oh, Wednesday? I think.

      Maybe it’s the area you are in? I don’t know… it’s odd. Very odd.

      Just got mine here in the United States. I love the blue led. I hate that is has the classic who sound chip. You think they could have updated this and made it better.

    Pathetic isn’t it if your a collector. No I might? Dunno? awe what to do. Might just get the 10th universal remote but wait this is in the 50th box kept the other one in the box. still works just for display. Hope to get the war doc figure either at Comic Con or off line dear off line blimey nearly 60 pound on some sites was only 15.99 in fp should’ve got it. Whens that new 11th dr and 12th dr coming out in 5 inch form? time of the doctor set.

      it was me. I just think how much longer will they keep getting money out of us all. We have seen this beyond a thousand and odd times recently. Man and the purple UV yuck. I broke yet another one of these 10th doctor sonics not even accurate that’s why i’m hoping I could try and get hold of a universal remote one. So much better than the toy.

    July 1st, 2014 - 10:56pm

    What are the sound effects? I hope the sound effects are like the one from the end of time edition and not the classic who sound effects. I am so sick of the classic who sound effects in the new doctor who screwdrivers

    • Sonic Screwdriver

      July 1st, 2014 - 10:58pm

      What are the sound effects like? I hope the sound effects are not the classic who sounds because those sounds are bad

    • Harold Saxon

      July 2nd, 2014 - 12:22am

      the sound effects are from each of the differnt sonic screwdrivers.

    seriously the only diffrence is a yellow wire they could have at least put a button on the slider

  • Awesome

    June 27th, 2014 - 1:06am

    I can’t wait to get this toy. I hope it has a blue LED unlike the horrible UV light. I really like that the wire is yellow instead of black. I also like that the handle is a different color.


      June 29th, 2014 - 8:51pm

      Yes it does and it features the sound chip from the war doctors sonic toy.

  • Spoilers

    June 18th, 2014 - 1:41am

    What are the sound effects? and what are the dimensions of the screwdriver?

    • Josh Harris

      June 27th, 2014 - 7:16pm

      Ditto! I have the old version of this, and I hate how low the sound fx are compared to the eleventh docs screwdriver. I hope this one sounds like that.

    Does it slide up and down and is it blue LED or is it the bad purple UV light?

    • Awesome

      June 27th, 2014 - 1:16am

      It slides and has a blue LED.

  • Nobody

    June 18th, 2014 - 1:19am

    Does this screwdriver have the terrible classic who sound effects like the last version of the sonic screwdriver?

  • CassiusX

    June 14th, 2014 - 12:58pm

    While it looks nice and the price seems reasonable for what it is, but I’ll have to be honest with you all, I’m sick of seeing the sight of these sonic screwdriver toys. It feels like a serious case of deja vu and they just seem to keep re-releasing the same one over and over again. Give us something different, please!

  • Ashley Paul Richards

    June 12th, 2014 - 8:25pm

    Why is there a price difference between the BBC Shop and Forbidden Planet version?

      June 12th, 2014 - 8:34pm

      BBC shop are slightley cheaper but BBC shop are better for ordering

    • booboo

      June 12th, 2014 - 8:43pm

      FP will probably sell the vast majority in their shops as well, much higher overheads

    Booboo, is the end cap glued shut, or does it open for no reason like other screwdrivers in the past have?

    • Anonymous

      June 11th, 2014 - 7:51am

      It should be a glued cap

    • Awesome

      The first one had a pen built into the end so it did have a use, no idea about the others though.

      Same shape different colour. The wore was black, now it’s yellow. If you swapped the inner section of this and put it in your Grey you’d have the colours used through 10th Dr’s era. Personally, id recommend the Wand Co’s version.

  • the astronaut of death

    June 8th, 2014 - 8:21pm

    So is the only difference the colour?

    • Jordie55555

      June 8th, 2014 - 1:09pm

      I don’t think so, just a re-release as far as I know
