Description

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.

The sonic screwdriver made its first appearance in the serial Fury from the Deep (1968), written by Victor Pemberton.

Over the course of the next two years, the props were continually repaired and modified, with some additions being a new thumb slider design and different colours of wires used in the clear channel when extended. In the Doctor Who spin-off series, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Sarah Jane Smith uses a "sonic lipstick", which is a gift the Tenth Doctor gave her alongside a new model of K9 and her scanner watch. Erasing alien encoding inside people's brains by having them don the glasses for a few minutes ("Before the Flood"). In " World War Three" (2005), when confronted by a group of Slitheen, the Doctor threatens to "triplicate the flammability" of a bottle of port wine with the sonic screwdriver, though one of the Slitheen realises he is bluffing. On one occasion he removed the head entirely and replaced it with a small, round mirror, which spun rapidly when he tapped its edge with his finger and hypnotized anyone who looked at it.

The sonic screwdriver prop used by the third, fourth, and fifth Doctor on Doctor Who, was itself actually a re-purposed prop from the film Thunderbirds are go. He also gives one to River Song in " The Husbands of River Song" which is then used by the Tenth Doctor to save her life in " Forest of the Dead".Sophisticated and elegant this Doctor was more of a pure scientist than his predecessors, surrounded by gadgets and vehicles. The design of the prop was meant to imply that the Master constructed it on Earth, and it was deliberately made larger than the Doctor's sonic screwdriver.

So, since I'm a bit obsessed with sonics, and my collection would be incomplete without on of these guys, I've decided to replicate the original prop as a one piece machined part. If you’ve already done that, your item hasn’t arrived, or it’s not as described, you can report that to Etsy by opening a case. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. The Twelfth Doctor had the final version of this model, and decided he was over sonic screwdrivers altogether! This version has even more functions including detecting security traps, remote detonation of mines, opening doors and restraints, creating ignitions sparks and again removing screws and fixings.Unlike the sonic screwdriver, it is used as a weapon that can kill as well as artificially age its target, using technology developed by Lazarus Laboratories originally seen in " The Lazarus Experiment". The sonic screwdriver was retired during the Fifth Doctor serial The Visitation, as it was felt that it had been overused. During the third Doctor’s exile on earth he had a larger and more elaborately detailed version, which had a decorated silver handle and black and yellow stripes. Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions.

The War Doctor also used his sonic in tandem with the Tenth and Eleventh's to create a force field wave to repel a Dalek. Like the TARDIS, it has become one of the icons of the programme, and spin-off media such as The Sarah Jane Adventures and Torchwood have replicated its functions in devices such as the sonic lipstick, sonic blaster, sonic probe, sonic modulator and sonic cane. In the 1979 serial City of Death, Count Scarlioni's henchmen use a "sonic knife" to cut the glass in front of the Mona Lisa. In " The Parting of the Ways" (2005) and " Utopia" (2007), it is used to operate the TARDIS controls remotely; when the Doctor attempts to counteract the Master's theft of the TARDIS, it is used to limit the TARDIS' destination.These replicas were handmade by original prop-maker Nick Robatto, and have now sold out permanently. In Children of Earth, Gwen Cooper uses a similar device, which she refers to as a Gizmo, to deactivate CCTV cameras. 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. Nardole uses the Fifth Doctor's version when sealing bulkhead doors to keep out Daleks later in the episode. It is sometimes used to disassemble robotic enemies or turn other objects into weapons; healing cuts and wounds.
