About this deal

During the Third Doctor’s exile on Earth he had a larger and more elaborately detailed version, which has a decorated silver handle and black and yellow stripes.

I may even paint over it to make it unique for ME as the Doctor (ever played dress-up to a convention of sorts? The Doctor didn’t replace the sonic for ages – the next time we saw one was when the Seventh Doctor used a similar model to seal a casket containing the Master’s remains. Eric Saward later explained in a 2005 DVD interview [5] that this was done on the instructions of producer John Nathan-Turner. In the 2005 episodes " The Empty Child" and " The Doctor Dances", Jack Harkness uses a " sonic blaster", referred to by Rose Tyler as a "squareness gun", capable of "digitising" structures by disintegrating them and then reversing the process, among other functions.Victor Pemberton told an interviewer for Doctor Who Magazine, "I'm very cross that the sonic screwdriver—which I invented—has been marketed with no credit to myself. The Doctor was devastated by the loss of his trusty tool – “I feel like you’ve just killed an old friend,” he said. The More Short Trips short story "Special Weapons", set late in season 24, indicates that the Seventh Doctor has a sonic screwdriver.

In Winner Takes All the Doctor fails to open a lock with it and concludes that it "hints at alien involvement".On occasion, the Doctor used it to either disarm explosive weapons ( PROSE: Cold Fusion) or to detonate them. In "Silence in the Library", Professor River Song possesses a slightly bulkier sonic screwdriver, which she claims the Doctor gave to her in his future. In The Three Doctors (1972–73), the sonic screwdriver is almost unrecognisable, being a unique, one-use prop with a plastic red spherical head. In the video game Daleks (published for operating systems of the early 1980s), the Doctor can use the sonic screwdriver to teleport and to defend himself against the Daleks.
