Quote from: galacticprobe on Mar 31, 2013, 09:09 pmI could almost swear that the 3rd sound in the CO 11th Doctor sonic was used as "the app" to disable the cybermat.
Quote from: Kingpin on Mar 31, 2013, 11:47 pmAny sound you heard would've been dubbed in in post production, film and television props rarely... if ever have sound.
Quote from: galacticprobe on Mar 20, 2013, 03:52 amYeah, now that you mention it... In Series 5 it was bright white-looking in the star whale's mouth in "The Beast Below" and again going down the steps beneath Stonehenge in "The Pandorica Opens"

Quote from: superrichi1a on Mar 05, 2014, 07:35 pmAre we even sure Capaldi, or indeed his parallel universe counterpart Quote from: galacticprobe on Mar 05, 2014, 06:36 amPeter Dapaldi will have another sonic screwdriver? I personally don't see any reason to change it...
Quote from: Kingpin on Mar 05, 2014, 08:47 pm1) The Sonic Matt used is too synonymous with him now... The design we've seen Matt saving the day with for four years is and will always be the 11's, and it doesn't seem fair to make the 12th Doctor have to make do with his precessor's Sonic...
Quote from: Kingpin on Mar 05, 2014, 08:47 pm2) Since Matt's Sonic was first debuted in The Eleventh Hour, the TARDIS "desktop" has undergone a change, and as we've seen the Sonics correlate (pun not intended) to the TARDIS interior to a degree. 9/10 had a coral pattern, 11 had metal, leather and green to it... it stands to reason that a Sonic influenced by the Console Room design starting in The Snowmen will end up being 12's Sonic Screwdriver.

The BEEB know they're making a tidy profit off of the Sonic Replicas, as indicated by the expansion of the classics line and re-releases. They're the go-to option for inexpensive replicas, they wouldn't turn down the opportunity to develop a new Sonic Screwdriver which could net them even more money.

QuoteI wasn't aware of the grammaphone incident! Do you have any screen caps, this sounds interesting!
QuoteNot necessarily. The Classic Series console room underwent quite a few "Desktop" changes, especially in the way of roundels and consoles, especially in the 3rd through 5th Doctor eras, and from Pertwee's last two seasons as the 3rd Doctor until the sonic was destroyed in the 5th Doctor story "The Visitation", the sonic remained pretty much unchanged
Quote from: Kingpin on Mar 06, 2014, 01:02 pm...even though (ignoring the in-story explanation) the changes to the lamp, colour scheme, phone panel and Saint John badge seen in The Eleventh Hour didn't have to be made, they weren't the result of a need to refurbish the prop because it was starting to look like it was on it's last legs, they made those changes because they could, and the budget more than covered it.
Quote from: Kingpin on Mar 06, 2014, 01:02 pmIf they can justify building all these TARDIS props, I can easily see them justifying giving Capaldi a new Sonic.
Quote from: Kingpin on Mar 06, 2014, 01:02 pmWith the BBC giving more money to Doctor Who these days, the production can justify having a New Sonic for each incarnation of the Doctor, and I will be very surprised if we see Peter wielding Matt's. I imagine something smaller and slimmer, less flamboyant than Matt's to match the potentially more serious, darker Doctor Capaldi is apparently planning to portray (hopefully also seen more sparingly, letting the Doctor solve the problem with his head more than his gadgets - but I doubt this'll happen until Moffat finally leaves).
Quote from: Kingpin on Mar 06, 2014, 01:02 pmI can't offer much speculation as to why CO have opted to not make the Sonic Lance or the Tissue Compression Elimator. Though I can imagine they just don't view them as economically viable.
Quote from: galacticprobe on Mar 07, 2014, 05:43 pmAs for how Capaldi will be portraying the Doctor, we have no way of presuming that it will be more serious or darker until we see him in a few full episodes.
Quote(Complaining, after regenerating, that he doesn't like the color of his "new" kidneys? I'd hardly call that serious.)
