SDCC 2018 – Thirteenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver from Character Options

This new collectible toy from long-time Doctor Who toy makers Character Options, who have held the license since the show returned in 2005, premiered at SDCC but will soon be available everywhere.

The new electronic 8” piece from Character Options is the perfect replica
of the Doctor’s most trusted device; fully lighting up when activated and
featuring brand new diagnostic sound FX.

Prop 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!”

Alasdair Dewar, Character Options’ Director of Product Development commented: “The new Sonic
Screwdriver collectible is a radical departure in look but still retains the classic Sonic abilities and
getting access to the prop images early on really helped the development of this toy.”
The Thirteenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver will be available from mid-August, however selected
retailers are taking pre-orders now.
