Today in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con Jodie Whittaker revealed not just the new look for Doctor Who’s Sonic Screwdriver — but also the Fan Collectible version you can buy, a replica of the one her character will use in the new series.
Designer Arwel Wyn Jones said:
“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 replica of the Doctor’s device, features a light crystal and has two buttons which control the light and sound elements of the Sonic.
On sale date early–mid August.
