10th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control

Following the release of the universal remote control in the form of the Eleventh Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, The Wand Company have released new details concerning a release of a remote in the style of the Tenth Doctor's, read on for further details:

Everybody needs a Sonic Screwdriver; the Doctor’s wonderful science fiction gadget that can unlock doors, control objects at a distance and is the pocket sized answer to all sorts of tricky situations.

Now, fans of David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor are in for a treat. This summer, in response to massive consumer demand, The Wand Company will reveal their new, authentic Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control.

Used by Time Lords for over four decades, the Sonic Screwdriver is one of the most iconic and versatile tools this side of planet Jalian 17. Undoubtedly the most masterful handler of this all-powerful tool was the Tenth Doctor; unlocking doors, sinking ships and even triangulating the source of ghoulish ghosts using his trusty device. 

Firebox, home of the coolest things you can buy, today launches the latest essential accessory for Doctor Who fans; the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control. Launched in conjunction with The Wand Company and BBC Worldwide, it may not sink ships or triangulate the source of ghoulish ghosts, but it is a fully functioning replica and a must-have for aspiring Time Lords everywhere.

Don’t go thinking this is just another prop copy in terms of design, oh no, it’s galaxies ahead of the pack in that respect too. Painstakingly 3D scanned from the original screen-used prop, actually loaned by David Tennant himself, the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control is a faithful clone. Featuring genuine extending action, made using the highest-grade materials and sizing up as a complete 1:1 replica, it looks, feels and works just like the real thing. This advanced, gesture-based universal remote control can be quickly and easily programmed utilising infrared technology to control almost all home entertainment equipment. From iPod docks, TVs and DVD & Blu-ray players this will gain complete control with a simple flick, twist or tap of the device.

The FX mode plays authentic special effect sounds from the BBC archives of Doctor Who and the bright illuminating tip will light the way no matter which corner of the universe you find yourself in. A die cast metal stand is also included, complete with Gallifreyan text inscription which doubles as a magnet making it the perfect, upright display platform. It also comes in an exquisite protective case to ensure its safe-passage through time and space.

Previewing on the ThinkGeek booth at San Diego Comic-Con in July, the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver remote will be available exclusively through selected retailers in the UK, US and Australia in October to coincide with BBC Worldwide’s Tenth Doctor celebrations (BBC America have been celebrating a different Doctor during every month of 2013) of the popular and long-running series’ 50th anniversary year.

To further commemorate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary year, The Wand Company is also launching a limited-edition gold and silver plated version of their enormously successful Eleventh Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver remote control. A small quantity will be available first at San Diego Comic-Con, and then from other selected retailers in the UK and US, but with only 250 of these special, individually laser-numbered Sonic Screwdrivers ever being produced, this is the ultimate collectible for Doctor Who fans.

Ben Redhead, buyer at said, "This is a quality, stunning piece of kit and the attention to detail means this is the real deal. The sonic screwdriver is the most iconic and versatile tool this side of Jalian 17, so Doctor Who fans of all ages are in for an absolute treat."

Chris Barnardo, Co-founder of The Wand Company says, "Following the incredible success of the Eleventh incarnation and as a result of quite sensational demand, we decided to create the Tenth Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver remote control. We’ve crammed this full of tech, to create a fully-functioning, authentic-looking gesture-based universal remote that we hope fans will adore."
