Video and concept art offer a closer look at Doctor Who's new sonic screwdriver

So long, sonic sunglasses! We hardly knew ye! The Doctor Who Season 9 finale saw the debut of a brand-new sonic screwdriver for Peter Capaldi’s Doctor, and you can take a closer look at Twelve’s shiny new toy right here, right now.

While most of us were expecting to have to wait until the Christmas special “The Husbands of River Song” before getting a closer look at the design for the new sonic screwdriver, the BBC has given us an early Christmas present and released a very cool sneak peek at the Doctor’s new sonic in a video and two pieces of concept art.

About the screwdriver, Peter Capaldi explains: “It is TARDIS blue, and when you operate it and its light comes on you can see the resemblance to the TARDIS.” 

Check out the video and the pieces of concept art below, and let us know what you think of the design for the new sonic screwdriver. Is it a hit or miss with you?
