San Diego, California – Thursday, July 19, 2018: Today in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, the new Sonic Screwdriver Fan Collectible was revealed for the U.S. – a replica of what the Thirteenth Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, will use in the new series of Doctor Who.
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.”
