How to Screw With Doctor Who Fans

Doctor Who is the longest-running sci-fi show on television, beating out Star Trek by a three-year head start and a solid run during the 70's and 80's. It chronicles the adventures of a time-traveling alien and his human companions as they gallivant across the universe in a blue phone booth.

One of the Doctor's most iconic gadgets, aside from the aforementioned phone booth, is his sonic screwdriver. The multipurpose tool can open locked doors, reprogram computers, and occasionally, act as a long-range weapon against synthetics. Every Doctor Who nerd worth his salt wants to get his hands on one.

Now, you can. It's not just a run-of-the-mill replica either; this sonic screwdriver, modelled after the 11th Doctor's version, features a real screwdriver on one end, with a total of six different tips. It's still got the blinking "sonic" head, for when you want pretend you're a hyper-intelligent Time Lord.

So if you want to have your own show-accurate sonic screwdriver that can actually open locks, then prepare to spend $40 on this truly geeky shop tool.
