doctor who sonic drive

(From The Independent) Blue Peter viewers will be invited to design a gadget to feature in the next series of BBC1’s Doctor Who.

The CBBC competition, launched on 21 November, will give children the chance to create a new sonic device for characters such as Strax, Madame Vastra or Jenny Flint to mark the sci-fi show’s 50th anniversary.

Steven Moffat, the executive producer of the Who programmes, will be on the judging panel along with Blue Peter editor Ewan Vinnicombe.

Winners will be announced a month later and the winner will be invited to Cardiff to the Doctor Who set to see their gadget being used.

During the November 21 show screened by CBBC and another Blue Peter special two days later – on the actual day of the anniversary – the presenters will be joined by aliens, Matt Smith will answer questions and viewers will learn how to make a cushion to hide behind, as well as how to create Dalek cupcakes.

BBC1 will screen a birthday edition of Doctor Who on November 23 which will see Smith united with other regenerations of the Doctor.
