Doctor Who SDCC Trailer And New Sonic Screwdriver For Season 11 Revealed At SDCC Panel
If you're at SDCC, you can buy it for yourself.
While the cast of Doctor Who remained tight-lipped about the upcoming season of the series, fans inside of San Diego Comic-Con's Hall H for the Thursday panel did get one big reveal: the Doctor's new Sonic Screwdriver. Alongside the new trailer above, the Thirteenth Doctor, who will be played by Jodie Whittaker, showed off what she'll be using during Season 11 to the packed hall. [Update: We've since gotten a new poster, too.]
Whittaker revealed the iconic sonic screwdriver during the panel and held it up for everyone to see--which you can check out for yourself below. It has a curve in the handle and has a red light on it. And yes, it makes the same classic sonic screwdriver sound we're all accustomed to. Currently, it is for sale at the BBC Shop booth (4129).
Showrunner Chris Chibnall discussed the new Sonic Screwdriver briefly, without giving too much away, as the newest season is shrouded in mystery. "There's a very specific way the Doctor comes by this Sonic Screwdriver," explained Chibnall. "It's designed by our new production designer Arwel Jones…"
"Who is a genius," producer Matt Strevens said. "You'd know him from Sherlock and the Sarah Jane Adventures. It's made out of some interesting components, which you'll find out about in Episode 1. There is a story to who the Doctor comes by this Sonic."
Doctor Who will be coming back to BBC and BBC America this October. Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming season, including cast interviews throughout the weekend, along with more from SDCC.
