This is available from forbiddenplanet.com and The BBC Shop

Everybody needs a Sonic Screwdriver; the Doctor’s wonderful science fiction gadget that can unlock doors, control objects at a distance and is the pocket sized answer to all sorts of tricky situations.

Now, fans of David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor are in for a treat. This summer, in response to massive consumer demand, The Wand Company will reveal their new, authentic Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control.

Painstakingly 3D scanned from the original screen-used prop, kindly loaned to The Wand Company by David Tennant himself, this Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver is a faithful clone, CNC machined from aluminium, crammed full of technology and is a fully functioning gesture-based universal remote control that looks, feels and works just like the real prop.

Previewing on the ThinkGeek Booth at San Diego Comic-Con in July, the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote will be available exclusively through selected retailers in the UK, US and Australia in October to coincide with BBC Worldwide’s Tenth Doctor celebrations (BBCW have been celebrating a different Doctor during every month of 2013) of the popular and long-running series’ 50th anniversary year.

To further commemorate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary year, The Wand Company is also launching a limited-edition gold and silver plated version of their enormously successful Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control. A small quantity will be available first at San Diego Comic-Con, and then from other selected retailers in the UK and US, but with only 250 of these special, individually laser-numbered Sonic Screwdrivers ever being produced, this is the ultimate collectible for Doctor Who fans.

The Wand Company

The Wand Company’s Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver, officially licensed from BBC Worldwide, is a 1:1 scale replica of the original filming prop. As well as being a fully-functioning universal learning remote control, the Sonic Screwdriver comes with a built-in rechargeable battery, has authentic sound effects taken from the BBC sound effects archives, 10 special secret Morse code messages to discover and a light-up blue tip. It is supplied with a die cast metal stand and comes in its own protective hard case. The Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver is expected to retail for £69.95 in the UK, $109.95 in the US and $129.95 in Australia.

About The Wand Company The Wand Company Ltd. was founded in 2009 by Chris Barnardo and Richard Blakesley, two British inventors, with the goal of creating immersive products that bring magic into people’s lives. Now one of the world’s leading providers of functional prop replica gadgets and magical instruments, The Wand Company’s products have already been sold in 82 different countries.

      It is smaller, by quite a bit, the other one was very bulky and also this one is more proportionate to the prop than the toy

      Same… They should also make an approach on Romana’s Sonic, or possibly Troughton’s as nobody’s made an attempt, not even CO. It’s practically a torch…

      Lol. Me too, already saved up about £30, why so pricey? But at the same time, why so cheap. I mean, for a sonic screwdriver that ACTUALLY works, it soulh have been WAY more expensive than CT. But i’m not complaining or anything 😆

    As a fan, and a heavy TV addict. I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE. I’ve started to save up, and have gathered £10.00 from pound coins. I would have enough by the end of August, or mid-october. Booboo, would it be available in shops?
