“Pryndonian Saber” – Inspired by The Inspector Who Reacts and Dr Who

Hello Everybody, today I’d like to introduce you to a young gent I met ecently through my friendship with Frankie, aka Nothin’ Nerdy. His name is The Inspector Who Reacts. He also hosts a channel on YouTube (click HERE to go to his channel) where he posts videos in which he reacts to various franchises and nostalgia such as the American anime series RWBY, Stranger Things, horror movies and of course…Doctor Who!
He is a great guy with a sense of humour and a vast knowledge of Whovian details. Just ask him what a Chameleon Circuit is and I bet he’d know. Well as I had designed a saber for Frankie, I felt that as he got on with her and seemed friendly like her that I should design a hilt for him. And of course not just any saber but a Doctor Who inspired hilt. As he is steeped in nostalgia I thought I would go “Old School Who” and I travelled to Gallifrey for inspiration (it’s just a short hop from one galaxy to another in my Jedi Starfighter!) And this was the hilt I came up with…

The hilt is modelled to resemble the costumes that the Time Lords wore with the large fan like back collars and the skull caps. You can see the type of costume I mean in the famous Trial of a Time Lord episodes starring Colin Baker as The Doctor.
The hilt is also in the colour scheme of the “Pryndonian Academy” – a school for Time Lords and at one time was considered the most prestigious of the Time Lord academies. The Doctor was schooled at Pryndorian Academy and I hope The Inspector has brushed up on his Gallifreyan so he can read the text in the first image (those circular symbols are Simple Gallifreyan text!) Oh yes and those symbols etched around the middle of the saber? Those spell out his name!. As I don’t have any studio work in progress pictures as I built this hilt rather quickly and I have a bit of a surprise object to reveal further into this post I thought it best to leave these teaser images here I  produced…

I think The Inspector also has a thing for time travel and retro styling as four years ago he had a haircut just like John Deacon’s hairstyle from the 1980’s…John Deacon was the bass guitar player in the band Queen for our younger readers!
The Inspector has even been seen sporting a bow tie now and then…very sartorial.

However Inspector doesn’t get everything right… I mentioned The Inspector has a TARDIS sized knowledge of all things Whovian, well unfortunately in his reaction video for “IT Chapter 2”, the Inspector has the wrong Sonic Screwdriver! We all know that Tom Baker had the best Sonic so…as a way of apology for likening his hair to John Deacon’s I decided I’d build him a Sonic Screwdriver (the one owned by the Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker) to go with his saber! Here they are together…Pryndonian Inspector 5 MK

Now you may have seen that little blue block with the little symbols on it’s faces, well those were a couple of pieces of masonry that I found on Gallifrey and they have the Inspector’s initials on….I, W and R standing for Inspector Who Reacts! He must have attended Pryndonian Acedemy too.

I hope you will all take time and check out The Inspector’s YT channel but please be aware that some of the material may not be suitable for very young Padawans (such as the horror movie reaction vids). You can find his channel by clicking HERE .

Well I think that just about wraps up this time travelling tribute to The Doctor and the Inspector. I hope The Inspector likes the design and my extra little “virtual gift” in the shape of a new Sonic Screwdriver. I hope all of you, my viewers/readers also enjoyed what you saw and I’d like to thank you once more for all the fantastic support you have shown me, new or regular visitors – you’re all very much appreciated. I sincerely hope you’ll all call back to FTSabersite as I have an Obi-Wan Kenobi inspired pair of hilts, my set of bespoke original hilts and my new side line of designs including new droids, starfighters and Holocrons all still to come! So till next time (or dimension in space!)…..

    1. Hi TVTA, thanks very much glad you like the Inspector’s hilt. But if I told you where I originally came up with the shape you’d never believe me (I had already built the saber but hadn’t finalised a theme for it).It was later I noticed the pommel looked like the fan collar of the Timelords’costumes and knew that was the theme.
      And fear not, I follow all rules, regulations and speed limits…I left my Hyperspace Drive Ring on the outskirts of Whovian space and flew on standard power!

  1. Love it! I trust the Inspector loves it, and has thanked you! The sonic screwdriver is a real nice bonus! You do a fab job with these sabers, Tyeth!

    1. Hello Resa, thanks so much. I try to tailor a design so it has a few personalised details, I think it helps to make the saber stand out. The Inspector did pass on his thanks and I think he accepted my apology! I will have some other new items to show everyone including new spaceships and droids to go with the Sonic Screwdrivers in future posts, Thanks again.
