Young Doctor Who fan's design impresses judges

A BLUE Peter fan has won a Doctor Who competition run by his favourite children’s TV show.

Connor, 13, of South Petherton, excelled in the competition, which challenged CBBC viewers to design brand new sonic devices to be used in the forthcoming series of the iconic science fiction show.

Connor designed a Sonic Gauntlet for use by Jenny Flint.

His intricate design included a tumbler to make locks fall apart, a radioactivity measurer and receiver dish, and a watch which shows the conductivity of metal in a lock.

Judge Steven Moffat said Connor’s design was a multipurpose toolkit which fits in your arm and can do a whole manner of things.

He said: “We love this because it looks really cool. “It looks quite steam punk – it looks Victorian, but looks technological at the same time.

“I can imagine Jenny Flint going out in the morning needing something like that on her arm.”
