30 Doctor Who Gifts That Are Just Brilliant

After a long enough wait that would send even the Ponds over the edge, BBC's "Doctor Who" came crashing back to T.V. screens on October 7. Making history with its viewership and female protagonist, the premiere has thoroughly restoked the fandom's fire.

Get the freshly enthused Whovians in your life back in the swing of things with this Doctor Who gift guide, with time to spare for the Christmas special!

Everyone has a favorite Doctor and now they can have the screwdriver to prove it! Both the Ninth and Tenth as well as the Eleventh and Twelfth Doctors share screwdrivers for a while, but there are subtle differences in the replicas that collectors will appreciate.

Though limited in features, these classic screwdrivers helped The Doctor out of several pickles. They might not have all the bells and whistles, but these are the cores of their "modern" (wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey) counterparts.

Unfortunately, no one makes replicas of the Eighth Doctor's second sonic screwdriver. Six's sonic lance is also left out of the fun, but it is of course a lance, not a screwdriver.
