Rubbertoe Replicas have announced their Thirteenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. It joins their line of quality, highly detailed Doctor Who prop replicas

Nick Robatto has been one of the Doctor Who revival’s main prop fabricators ever since production began in 2004. In 2011 he created Rubbertoe Replicas to produce high quality replicas of the props he was creating for the show. Having created the sonic screwdriver for Series 11, the Rubbertoe team will now be making duplicates for fans to purchase.

Rubbertoe have boasted the new screwdriver will be “the closest you can get to owning the original filming prop.”

They’ve also said “there is no difference in the sonics we have made for the show, and the one we will make for you, giving your replica a provenance and rarity like no other.”

As with the prop used by Jodie Whittaker, he crystal emitter spins and lights up. It can also be twisted 180º at the middle joint so the end section either curves up or down. Unfortunately, being so accurate the replica also shares the limitation of the actual prop. It doesn’t make the sonic screwdriver’s distinctive whirring, whistling tones.


The metal prop is made with cast pewter (not Sheffield Steel spoons, sorry).  It comes with a presentation box, display stand and a certificate of authenticity signed by Nick Robatto.

The catch? The Rubbertoe Replicas Thirteenth Doctor Sonic Screwdriver costs a hefty £700 (+VAT). That might ultimately may put it out of reach of many fans. But for those with deep enough pockets and a desire for complete screen accuracy, it can be pre-ordered now.

The Thirteenth Doctor Sonic Screwdriver replica can be purchased directly from Rubbertoe Replica’s site.

Rubbertoe Replicas is pleased to be able to offer this stunning, screen accurate replica of the new 13th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver! Just like the 11th & 12th Doctor’s Sonics, the original filming prop was made by our master prop-maker, Nick Robatto, right here in the Rubbertoe workshops (not a garage in Sheffield). And as with our other sonic replicas, this unique replica will be made using exactly the same techniques, materials, measurements and designs as the filming prop.

Rubbertoe Replicas is a unique company specialising in 100% authentic prop replicas and collectibles from the cult BBC show, Doctor Who. We are the ONLY prop makers who are fully licensed by the BBC to make replicas from Doctor Who.


  1. Hi, After compairing the pics. of the actual sonic used in the show and this Rubbertoe version I am very dissapointed in your result for the details are not correct. For the perice you are charging you should have paid way more attention to detail. The lit up areas are too reddish in Color. Then no sounds no turning Crystal the cut out are not correct.Even the cheap plastic versions have managed to do a better job – though still not good enough. I hope to see better versions come out in the future. Rubbertoes did not spend enough time on this Screwdriver to make the correct details.Please contact me when an improoved version comes out.Best regards.
