About this deal

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.

But there are times when even the Doctor’s amazing mind needs some help to get stuff done more quickly, and that’s when a sonic screwdriver can come in very handy. better source needed] QMx later released an Artisan Master Series replica of River Song's sonic screwdriver, limited to a run of 15, also made by original prop maker Nick Robatto, which has also sold out. In " The Eleventh Hour" (2010), the malfunctioning sonic screwdriver is destroyed when the Doctor tries to signal the Atraxi ships.In the following episode, Professor Song mentions that her screwdriver is augmented with a "red setting" and "dampers".

Much larger than the Second Doctor's sonic screwdriver, this model elaborately detailed silver collar featured black and yellow stripes and red trim, and could be pulled down to activate the screwdriver. 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. Aside from being a tool, the sonic screwdriver can be used and considered as a defensive weapon, which is effective for a few types of assault weapons, but not designed to kill or injure living things as the only way it can really hurt or incapacitate an organism is by emitting painful bursts of sound, or, as of " Day of the Moon" (2011) by blasting a green wave of energy to incapacitate a target, though only the Eleventh and Twelfth's sonic has been shown to do the latter. In Only Human it is used to restrain someone by welding wires to a chair; in the same novel the Doctor informs Quelly that the device contains 29 computers.The Fourth Doctor found lots of inventive new uses for his favourite device – everything from detonating land mines and creating holes in force-fields to safe-cracking and setting off fire alarms. UNIT scientists then tried to use reverse-engineering to understand its workings; this went on into the 21st century. It was bigger than before, with a removable emitter head that could be swapped to provide different functions. There is technology the sonic is unable to interface with, such as wood, or the isomorphic controls seen in "A Christmas Carol". With only a warehouse full of junk, an abandoned alien bulb filled with tech, a load of old spoons and a blowtorch at her disposal, the Doctor got busy.

For a while, it looked like he really meant it – he even got into the wearable tech trend by creating a pair of sonic sunglasses with similar functions as a replacement. The Doctor has used other sonic devices similar to the sonic screwdriver, including the "door handle" of Inferno ( Liz Shaw having one of her own) and a pen-sized white noise generator in Four to Doomsday. The very first thing the Doctor used this incredible tool for was literally unscrewing some screws – although it soon turned out to have far greater capabilities, thanks to the powerful, miniaturised technology it contained. The sonic screwdriver was confiscated when the Doctor was sent to the Lunar Penal Colony, and he never recovered it.Nardole uses the Fifth Doctor's version when sealing bulkhead doors to keep out Daleks later in the episode. Like the Doctor's screwdriver and Sarah Jane's lipstick, the Master's laser screwdriver was also created as a children's toy with sound effects. Despite them trying to keep it quiet from the Doctor, he was well aware of the project by his seventh incarnation. The sonic screwdriver is unable to open a "deadlock seal", used as a plot device to prevent an easy solution.
