About this deal

In " Silence in the Library" (2008), while trying to open a wooden door, the Doctor tells Donna that the sonic screwdriver will not work because the door is made of wood, a fact later restated in " The Hungry Earth" (2010); when Rory complains about this, the Doctor counters to not "diss the sonic. The sonic screwdriver was confiscated when the Doctor was sent to the Lunar Penal Colony, and he never recovered it. In the final story of season 15, The Invasion of Time, the Fourth Doctor conceded, "Not even the sonic screwdriver can get me out of this one. In " Closing Time" (2011), ringed energy beams are seen emitted from the device, giving it a more weapon-like appearance, particularly when used to disable a weakened Cyberman at a distance.

Much larger than the Second Doctor's sonic screwdriver, this model elaborately detailed silver collar featured black and yellow stripes and red trim, and could be pulled down to activate the screwdriver. The new screwdriver has seen use in the spin-off show Class, where the Doctor increases the voltage of flood lights to expel the Shadow Kin and partially close a rift in space-time. In "Journey's End", Sarah Jane Smith is seen using her own sonic screwdriver, or sonic lipstick to open a door on the Dalek Crucible. During the third Doctor’s exile on earth he had a larger and more elaborately detailed version, which had a decorated silver handle and black and yellow stripes. The Doctor was devastated by the loss of his trusty tool – “I feel like you’ve just killed an old friend,” he said.It was revealed in " The Husbands of River Song" that it was the Twelfth Doctor who gave it to River. In " World War Three" (2005), when confronted by a group of Slitheen, the Doctor threatens to "triplicate the flammability" of a bottle of port wine with the sonic screwdriver, though one of the Slitheen realises he is bluffing. In " Forest of the Dead" (2008), he claims that a few hair-dryers can interfere with the device, though he states that he is "working on that".

Aside from being a tool, the sonic screwdriver can be used and considered as a defensive weapon, which is effective for a few types of assault weapons, but not designed to kill or injure living things as the only way it can really hurt or incapacitate an organism is by emitting painful bursts of sound, or, as of " Day of the Moon" (2011) by blasting a green wave of energy to incapacitate a target, though only the Eleventh and Twelfth's sonic has been shown to do the latter.

Blue Peter announced that there will be three Sonic devices that will feature in Series 8 of Doctor Who, designed by Blue Peter watchers. A model of sonic screwdriver, going through multiple modifications, was used by the Third, Fourth and Fifth Doctors. It was used thereafter by the Second Doctor as a multi-purpose tool, with occasional variations in appearance over the course of the series.The Eighth Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver is a re-released 8th Doctor Sonic which sold out the first time around (January 2014). 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.
