The Eighth Doctor's (Paul McGann) sonic screwdriver from Geoffrey Sax's sci-fi television movie Doctor Who. After the apparent death of the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), Chang Lee (Yee Jee Tso) took the bag containing the contents of the late Doctor's pockets, including the sonic screwdriver, which he later returned to the newly regenerated Eighth Doctor at the conclusion of their adventure.
The sonic screwdriver is made of polished silvertone metal with a brasstone band around the handle, a circular emitter ring at the top with a red, bullet-shaped center, and a spring-loaded body that extends with the press of a small button on the handle. The sonic screwdriver is in good overall condition with some wear from production and age, including dark scuffing throughout the metal body, paint chipping on the red "bullet," and a bit of stickiness to the spring-assisted extension function. Dimensions: 8 3/4" x 1" x 1" (22.25 cm x 2.75 cm x 2.75 cm)`
