Jack Harkness: Who has a sonic screwdriver? Who looks at a screwdriver and thinks, "Ooh, this could be a little more sonic!"?
The Doctor: What, you've never been bored? Never had a long night? Never had a lot of cabinets to put up?
The Doctor’s sonic screwdriver has gotten him out of a lot of sticky situations. A bit too many situations, as it turns out because the writing team had been chewed out by the show’s producers many times over the years for using it too often. Darn useful tool though. It does pretty much whatever The Doctor needs it to do. From remotely controlling the TARDIS to scanning the area to cutting and welding. As the Doctor once said “Harmless is just the word. That's why I like it! Doesn't kill, doesn't wound, doesn't maim. But I'll tell you what it does do. It is very good at opening doors.” It just doesn’t work on wood.
Where did everyone go? See, this is why I limit myself on Doctor Who references. For those that are still here...all three of you...I’ve recently discovered something else that’s sonic that has made my life so much easier: a Sonic Cleaner. You know those water filled things in jewelry stores that makes that annoying buzzing noise? Yeah, those things. I’m here to say that you don’t need to be a jeweler to have a use for one.
