Peter Capaldi intros the new Sonic Screwdriver, TARDIS blue of course
This past weekend we closed another chapter in the “Doctor Who” series, saying goodbye to our beloved Clara as we watched the Doctor prepare for another adventures season just before the final credits ran. We still have the the popular Christmas episode to look forward to, which is set to air later this month, but after that we will have a very long wait ahead of us.
When the Doctor lost his Sonic Screwdriver earlier this season and adopted a pair of Ray Bans in its place, many Whovians completely lost their minds on social-media. Those fans can rest easy now because the Sonic Screwdriver has returned. In the final episode the network offered just a quick glimpse of the new Sonic Screwdriver, but since then the BBC has spoken a bit more about the reincarnation of the Doctor’s favorite tool. The network even released a new intersectional with Peter Capaldi speaking about the new Sonic Screwdriver that he will use next season.
Most of the new device is “T.A.R.D.I.S Blue” which depending on the site you are checking ranges from Pantone 2955C to #003d67 using the HEX guide. If you prefer to use the BBC image below as a guide you can also extract #394d92, which I have found to be a much more subtable color when recreating the specific shade of blue for web use.
The Doctor getting a new Sonic isn’t anything new, it’s been a very constant plot-point in the last four Doctors specifically. Much like reconstructing the inside of the T.A.R.D.I.S. itself or the Doctor’s clothes, each Doctor gets his own flair.
In the upcoming “Doctor Who Christmas Special” the BBC has released a few details for fans to think about. The network stated that it will be, “Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from carols and comedy antlers. But when the Time Lord’s help is requested he finds himself recruited into River Song’s squad and hurled into a fast and frantic chase across the galaxy!” The network added. “King Hydroflax (Greg Davies) is furious and his giant robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas) survive? And when will River work out who the Doctor is?”
The episode will be called ‘The Husbands of River Song’ and it will premiere on December 25, 2015.
