The Thirteenth Doctor – Jodie Whittaker – has unveiled the new Sonic Screwdriver which her character will use in the new series of Doctor Who.

Designer Arwel Wyn Jones commented: “It’s a privilege to have been asked to redesign the iconic sonic screwdriver for the Thirteenth Doctor and a new generation of audiences. I can’t wait for people to see how the Doctor acquires it.”
