I’m a Consulting Detective, if you can understand what that is. Here in London we have lots of government detectives and lots of private ones. When these fellows are at fault, they come to me, and I manage to put them on the right scent. – Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet

Dear Will, I have been searching for the 8th doctors sonic screwdriver online for months now, can you please tell me where I can purchase one from, as the ebay link you gave is telling you that it has been sold! Maybe I am looking in the wrong places god knows, can you help me?
Yours very frustrated
Hi Stuart you can now get the Sonic Screwdriver from http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk or http://www.forbiddenplanet.com . Hope you like it!
The reason you can’t find it is probably due to the fact it hasn’t be officially released yet. I’ve no idea when the sonic will be released. Wave 2 seems to consist of The War Doctor’s Sonic, The Fifth Doctor’s Sonic and The Eighth Doctor’s Sonic. The War Doctor’s Sonic is the only one you may be able to pick up online. The Eighth Doctor’s Sonic that I referenced in the post appears to have been “nicked off the back of a lorry” as it were! When I get news on the Wave 2 Sonics I’ll post it on the site.
Dear Will, just to let you know that I have now successfully placed my preorder for the 8th Doctor’s sonic.
Thank you ever so much Will.
