Dr Who

Doctor Who?

Unless you’ve been living on another planet, you know that today’s cool kids love the Doctor Who British TV program.

The show is about an eccentric yet compassionate extraterrestrial Time Lord that zips through time and space to solve problems and battle injustice across the universe, traveling via the TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimensions in Space), which is his old and occasionally unreliable spaceship that resembles a blue police phone box (but changes its appearance depending on its surroundings) and is much, much larger inside than outside.

As we grands are looking for new and interesting gifts for our grandkids, we asked a real cool kid, 12 year old, Sarah Cobb, to check out the new Doctor Who 10th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver and tell us what she thought of it.

I’ve been a Doctor Who fan for several years now and my favorite doctor is David Tennant.  As you can imagine I was excited to receive the 10th doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver!  It makes noises just like the show, and looks like it too. It even has two different nibs that you can change out; a normal one and one you use to write hidden messages. Overall, I like it and so would any other Dr. Who fan.
