    Aug 29, 2011, 4:32 PM - The 11th Doctor's Sonic Cane #1

    Having watched TV's 'Doctor Who' on saturday, I thought it might be nice to make a Sonic Cane like his.

    So, having a spare 11th Doctor sonic, an old pool cue, a 60mm plastic sphere and a long weekend to hand, I thought I'd make one.








    Works just like the one on the show, only real difference is mine has a taper, whereas the one on TV was straight.

    It's a little bit fast of a and dirty build, and the four part ball section needs some fine tuning, but it'll do for now!

    Gah, you beat me to it. This was the first time I saw a prop on any show or movie and thought, "I can make that!"

    Where did you get the sphere and how did you quarter it so cleanly?

    Wow, you've definitely won the award for "fastest build". After seeing such a fine prop I was also tempted to build one, hope you're able to provide tips for painting it silver and attaching the ball quadrants.

    Shame the rest of the episode was a little bit "meh".

    Very nice! Does the button on the side open it up too? Looks like a release button for an automatic umbrella...

    Oh dear oh dear oh dear - someone actually made it!

    Well done but "sheesh" what a lame excuse for a prop :P (that isn't aimed at you, its aimed at Moffett!)

    Great build man! Not to mention the speed at which you completed it.

    Also, the cane was straight with a heavily tapered tip.

    Those things aside, this is still a great build, and wow was it fast!



    On a side note, this is the first time, out of ALL the Doctor Who stories that I felt the Doctor was over reliant on his sonic. I mean, he loaned it out so he built a new one...for a simple scan...while he was dying?

    Didn't the Tardis spit out his first screwdriver in the first episode?

    Maybe she thought he needed something more fitting for the occasion!

    I'm attempting to make this prop, as my first prop making project!

    I was just wondering if you could impart any knowledge or tips on the creation process?

    Immediately after this episode I knew this item was prime material for a buildup here over the next few weeks but I'm delightfully astounded it came to fruition far sooner, stellar work sir!

    Not that anyone needs it or anything but DW Confidential did a pan up the prop with Matt from afar - someone could stitch the frames together to make a full length shot

    found this looks close?

    here is what it say it is

    R.A.F. Swagger Cane

    Black painted wooden cane approx. 66cm in length. Brass end ferrule and EPNS ball top with RAF King's Crown crest . Some paint loss to cane. Minor denting and loss of plating to ball top. Good used overall.

    Looks to be too long and skinny, but that's basically what we are looking for here. It's highly likely that the cane was fabricated especially for the show, so chances are we won't be able to buy the exact one they used
