There’s a chance to win a high quality facsimile of the Twelfth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver in the latest Doctor Who Comic UK (Issue 4), on sale Thursday 21st May 2015.
Partnering with The Wand Company (also the makers of the Kymera wand and Star Trek phaser universal remote) four lucky winners will be amongst the first in the world to receive the brand-new Twelfth Doctor Sonic Screwdriver, which will be seen for the first time at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con on 8th July on the BBC Booth.
The universal remote gives Doctor Who fans what they have been asking for: a gesture-based metal replica Sonic Screwdriver with Any-TV-Off function and fabulous sonic light and sound effects.
The brand-new hero prop replica is a superb recreation of the Sonic Screwdriver used by Peter Capaldi in the latest season of the show. Compatible with almost all audio-visual home entertainment devices, perfect for both play and display, the Twelfth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver is a must-have piece for any Doctor Who fan, cosplayer or collector.
Also in this issue of Doctor Who Comic, featuring not just one, but three Doctors in on-going adventures: the Twelfth Doctor discovers more about the cult of Kali; the Eleventh Doctor takes part in a murder mystery; and the Tenth Doctor introduces Gabby to the wonders of time and space exploration.
