San Diego Comic-Con 2013

Everybody needs a Sonic Screwdriver; the Doctor’s wonderful science fiction gadget that can unlock doors, control objects at a distance and is the pocket sized answer to all sorts of tricky situations.

To commemorate Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary year, The Wand Company is launching a limited-edition gold and silver plated version of their enormously successful Eleventh Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control. A small quantity will be available first at San Diego Comic-Con, and then from other selected retailers in the US and UK, but with only 250 of these special, individually laser-numbered Sonic Screwdrivers ever being produced, this is the ultimate collectible for Doctor Who fans.

In addition, fans of David Tennant's Tenth Doctor are in for a treat. This summer, in response to massive consumer demand, The Wand Company will reveal their new, authentic Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control.

Painstakingly 3D scanned from the original screen-used prop, kindly loaned to The Wand Company by David Tennant himself, this Tenth Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver is a faithful clone, CNC machined from aluminium, crammed full of technology and is a fully functioning gesture-based universal remote control that looks, feels and works just like the real prop.

Previewing on the ThinkGeek booth (#5541) at San Diego Comic-Con in July, the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote will be available exclusively through selected retailers in the US (also available in UK and Australia) in October to coincide with the broadcast of BBC AMERICA’s Doctor Who: The Doctor’s Revisted – The Tenth Doctor special. (BBC AMERICA has been celebrating a different Doctor with specials airing each month leading up to November 2013).
Doctor Who, from lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, stars Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman. The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special premieres November 23 in the US on BBC AMERICA.
