Dr Who.

Nate's Dad is a very big Dr Who fan, and for those of you who don't know Dr Who starts again on Saturday 1st September. Unfortunately for Nate's dad we are busy that night, our wedding party, luckily for us we've already seen the episode thanks to the BFI preview. It'll be a very good episode and as we were asked not to spoil it by Stephen Moffat himself I'm not going to spoil it.

Back to the point of this post, on 31st August a new gadget will be released: the Sonic Screwdriver remote! Forbidden Planet had an event in which the makers of the remote were demonstrating it and you were able to buy for one day only. There was also a competition to win one if you came dressed as a character from Dr Who, neither of us were brave enough so we nominated Nate as the person to go dressed as the eleventh Dr.

Nate as the Eleventh Dr Who.

There were three other people who entered, which surprised us we expected a lot more people to enter. There was a David Tennant lookalike, a member from UNIT and a pirate Amy Pond, the judges handed it over to the crowd to decide and David Tennant came a close second to Nate.

Nate is the proud owner of a Sonic Screwdriver remote, and as he seems to have claimed my Sonic Screwdriver Wii remote I think I'll have to play with the new one. I'll post a review once I've had a chance to play around with it and I'm sure Nate will review is as well, in a few years time as it has a 12+ age rating and is rather heavy for him to properly manipulate.

A very quick review from me, it looks amazing and the functionality is very nice and if the novelty wears off it will look very good on your mantlepiece/bookshelf with it's morse code setting.
