The Doctor's multipurpose tool is a Gallifreyan device, with numerous settings, easily controlled at the press of his thumb. The Doctor has had many sonic screwdrivers of different designs throughout his life, and this latest one was created from within the TARDIS console itself after the previous one was destroyed during a confrontation with Prisoner Zero in the village of Leadworth. This new sonic is larger, with a luminous green light but continues to be an essential part of the Doctor's equipment as he explores the universe.
  • This faithful copy of the Doctor's trusty Sonic Device has spring loaded extending action
  • Pressing the button on the side of the handle activates the LED and Sound FX which operates in closed mode
  • Flip open the cap at the end of the Screwdriver to reveal an additional button that activates the light and sound effects when it is in full extension open mode
  • For ages 5 years and over
  • Requires 3 x L1154 batteries

Very good repro very well thought out, and it has 2 'Easter Egg' noises that most product descriptions seems to miss, you will notice when you press your button there is a slight delay before the sound kicks in, during the time of this delay try tapping the button a few times THEN holding it in, I'll leave the rest for you to discover!

My daughter who is 6 years old just had to have one. I must say she is more than happy with it. After googling to find out how the batteries went in, as didn't have any instructions inside only pic was on the box, she played with it all night. The batteries are only trial ones. For the hassel to put them in I would just buy new ones to be honest. We are back up and running now. The toy does on first look seem as if it won't last being plastic and having alot of parts which would snap if manhandled, but saying that my daughter isn't rough with her toys so we will see. I have never bought a toy like this before but it seems to have gone down a treat and well worth the money for entertainment. The prices do vary but seem to have got a bargain on this website.

The only drawback of having two young timelords is having to buy two sonic screwdrivers! However, both of them love this toy and they have engaged in a lot of imaginary play using them. Doctor Who has grabbed them like nothing else, and this has brought the series into their play considerably; I doubt a rubbish version would have done so well. I admit that one did play up (dodgy wiring), but it was replaced with a perfectly-working one. The sounds and lights are great, the pop-up feature a nice touch. Well worth the 15 squid, especially when compared to toys that don't have as much longevity.

This is the best sonic screwdriver I have ever bought. I had to buy over 5 old sonic screwdrivers because they kept breaking and same with the sonic pen. But this is awesome!!!!! Really great value for money!
I recommend it to anyone who is thinking about buying one or for someone who likes doctor who. Hope this helps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Very good, just a bit flimsy

I'm a big fan of the series and this is definitely the coolest sonic screwdriver I've ever seen. The cool green lights, the variety of sounds, the cool robotic retro feel and the extending end make this a really cool device.

There are 3 buttons on the 11th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver. The top 2 buttons in the middle of the device are the extender button and the sonic noise button

Unlike the previous screwdriver you have 4 different sounds to choose from by pressing the noise button in succession!

Sound 1 and 2 are the same sonic-like noise the previous screwdriver did except one is higher pitched than the other. You press the button once and they change alternately so it goes Sound 1, Sound 2, Sound 1, Sound 2 etc.

Sound 3 is a weird cool laser-like noise from pressing the button 3 times in quick succession. Sound 4 is the lower pitched noise of Sounds 1/2 except it flickers visually and audibly as if the screwdriver has an interference or running low on power.

However its definitely not perfect. Putting in the batteries is a bit of an ordeal and the screws involved in doing so were quite difficult to remove especially if you used the wrong kind of screwdriver which can strip the screw head and make it hard to remove the battery cover. The main button which activates the noises only works when the screwdriver is in its low position and so when extended, the button is attached to the point that is extended and moves into a small gap that is designed for you not to be able to press it in. Its hard to fully explain but it is a big annoyance.

The problem is somewhat solved by having a button on the bottom of the screwdriver under a hatch which is significantly harder to press than the other buttons and works whether the device is in the basic or extended position. It is pretty cool but it seems unnecessary when the problem could have been solved anyway. Also when the device is extended there is no button to bring it down so it has to be done manually. This isn't a giant problem but you can't seem to do it with your palm directly as that doesn't lock in the metal claws which means when you let go it just springs back up again. The only way to do it is to make sure your hand is only touching the light and push it down.

These all are minor complaints but overall the product is great. I'm not fan of collecting but if you're into collecting and displaying doctor who merchandise then the packaging for series 5 is pretty sweet.

If you're a fan and want to re-create some of your favourite moments from the new series or just have a wave around pretending to be the doctor, I can highly recommend this.
