11th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver

The Sonic Screwdriver is The Doctor's most used gadget, excluding the TARDIS . Appearing in the late 60s, the Screwdriver has been used by almost all incarnations of the Time Lord. Initially used to literally drive screws, its features were expanded until it became the iconic, multitool we know it as today.

The Sonic Screwdriver, in several forms, was used by the Second to Fifth Doctors. It was then removed from the show when it was destroyed by a Terileptil, and never returned in the Classic Series. It made appearances in the TV movie, and returned to the show in the New Series with a new design, adding a light to the end of it.

In the Mod Edit

In the mod, the Sonic Screwdriver is a valuable tool that has sound effects, numerous variations and many useful features. Each Sonic can do the following:

  • Send a redstone signal (Broken in most versions, works in 1.6)
  • Open iron doors
  • shear sheep
  • Ignite TNT
  • Turn on redstone lamps
  • Shatter glass panes (Right click and hold, just make sure you are not in hitting distance of the pane)
  • Displaying mob stats in the chat when right-clicking the mob (1.7 Legacy only)

In the latest 1.8-1.12 versions, the Screwdrivers have some additional features:

  • A GUI showing the following when held:
    • If the Screwdriver was obtained from Creative mode or crafted in Survival
    • The number of uses the Screwdriver has
    • The name of the block the player is looking at
    • The statistics and a picture of any mobs scanned (happens when the player is looking at an entity for a short length of time).
