San Diego, Thursday 19th July: Today in Hall H Jodie Whittaker revealed the new Sonic Screwdriver Fan Collectible, a replica of the one her character will use in the new series of Doctor Who.
Designer Arwel Wyn Jones talked through the new sonic; “It’s a privilege to have been asked to redesign the iconic sonic screwdriver for the Thirteenth Doctor and a new generation of audiences. I can’t wait for people to see how the Doctor acquires it!”
The US and UK toy versions of the Sonic Screwdriver have been created by Seven20 and Character Options, respectively. The new, electronic 8” collectible is a perfect replica of the Doctor’s device, features a light crystal and has two buttons which control the light and sound elements of the Sonic.
The products will be available to pre-order soon from www.character-online.co.uk for UK fans and BBC Shop in the US plus other retailers. Fans at Comic Con in San Diego can also pick up the new sonic at Seven20, Booth 5245.
