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.

The Sonic Screwdriver is a versatile tool and defensive device first used by the Doctor in his second incarnation for opening up hatches, panels and controls.

    A whole new generation of Classic Who fans are busily building carboard models of the original Peter Brachacki TARDIS console. Of course they are.
    It’s the best.
    They’re all over youtube. So come along now Character Options. Come along now. Get yer finger out!

    I really hate the paint on the yellow/black striped bit. The plastic there is too reflective.

    I’ve just hatched an idea 💡 After this release they should make a 3rd doctor sonic screwdriver pen.

    are Underground Toys and CO the same company?

    No, character hold the licence for this type of Doctor Who Merchandise.

    Underground toys basically commission these items via Character or it could be a jointly funded venture hence both names.

    @whocrazy (new sonic screwdriver thing): I haven’t got any sonic screwdrivers yet (I’m pretty recent to this website), but the new one looks good enough for me to buy.
