Description

The Doctor's Time Lady companion Romana constructed a sonic screwdriver of her own similar to the Doctor's. In "Silence in the Library", Professor River Song possesses a slightly bulkier sonic screwdriver, which she claims the Doctor gave to her in his future. In the 1965 episode Trap of Steel, the Doctor uses an apparently ordinary screwdriver to examine the metal of the Drahvin spaceship and other tasks. In " Doomsday" (2006), the Doctor states that the sonic screwdriver does not kill, wound or maim; however, it is sometimes brandished in a threatening manner, such as in " The Christmas Invasion" (2005), " The Impossible Planet" (2006), " The Runaway Bride" (2006), " The Lazarus Experiment" (2007), " The Day of the Doctor" (2013), and The Infinite Quest (2007).

This one had a cracked coral handle, and was more closely connected to the TARDIS than before – it could even make new copies on demand. It is similar to a Tuxedo cane, except the top replaced with the upper portion of his screwdriver, with a metal ball cut in fourths attached to the claws. Featuring The Third Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver (Version 2), The Eighth Doctor’s, The Ninth Doctor’s and The Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdrivers.The Eighth Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver is a re-released 8th Doctor Sonic which sold out the first time around (January 2014). The sonic screwdriver was confiscated when the Doctor was sent to the Lunar Penal Colony, and he never recovered it. The sonic screwdriver was written out of the series late in season 19, in the Fifth Doctor serial The Visitation (1982). The Tenth Doctor joked about the Fifth Doctor's lack of sonic screwdriver in the mini-episode " Time Crash" (2007), commenting that he "went hands-free" and could "save the universe using a kettle and some string. It also is capable of causing chemical reactions that allow the Doctor to turn eyeglass lenses black like sunglasses and causing cut barbed wire to regenerate (setting 2428B).

Eric Saward later explained in a 2005 DVD interview [5] that this was done on the instructions of producer John Nathan-Turner. Russell T Davies once mentioned that he would never make the sonic screwdriver the solution to an episode. Exceptions include Robot (which was the last story to be produced by Barry Letts), where it was again used to detonate mines, and as a "miniature sonic lance" [note 1] to cut out a lock. Mostly, though, he used it to open doors – he definitely wasn’t the kind of Doctor who liked being told where he could and couldn’t go! Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item.

In the DVD commentary, Letts himself remarks on the thickness of the prop and the fact that it belies the idea that it was the regular one, prompting Katy Manning to question whether it was indeed a sonic screwdriver. The sonic screwdriver made its first appearance in the serial Fury from the Deep (1968), written by Victor Pemberton.

In the final story of season 15, The Invasion of Time, the Fourth Doctor conceded, "Not even the sonic screwdriver can get me out of this one. Sophisticated and elegant this Doctor was more of a pure scientist than his predecessors, surrounded by gadgets and vehicles. Erasing alien encoding inside people's brains by having them don the glasses for a few minutes ("Before the Flood"). In the Ninth Doctor Adventures novel The Clockwise Man the sonic screwdriver is used to cauterise wounds, as a soldering iron, and to stop a clockwork mechanism.Also in that episode, the sonic screwdriver gets split into two pieces, one of which ends up inside a flying shark. As there was no TARDIS around to fire out a replacement, she had to take matters into her own hands.
