Peter Capaldi Gets an All New Sonic Screwdriver

The ninth season of "Doctor Who" has seen many changes, including the loss of the iconic Sonic Screwdriver. Fans bemoaned the sonic sunglasses, lamenting that they were silly and cursing Moffat for...well, everything. Being the ever-cheeky man that he is, when asked about why he shook things up like that, he basically said "because I can."

We all knew the Screwdriver would return, it was just a matter of when, and that moment came during the season finale, "Hell Bent." After an intense and emotional episode, Whovians were treated to one more little tug at the heart strings, as the Doctor enters the TARDIS and a brand new Screwdriver is waiting in the console for him.

While it was a quick glimpse of the new tool, you can rest assured that we'll be seeing a lot of it in the upcoming Christmas special, along with River's Sonic...trowel. "The Husbands of River Song," airs on Christmas day, so be sure to tune in and let us know what you think!

While you wait, check out this behind the scenes video of Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi, talking about the new Sonic Screwdriver.
