* In "[[Recap/DoctorWho2013CSTheTimeOfTheDoctor The Time of the Doctor]]", a [[ItMakesSenseInContext wooden Cyberman]] threatens the Doctor with an arm-mounted flamethrower. The Doctor uses his sonic screwdriver on the weapon, then explains that his device has just re-set the weapon to fire backwards. The Cyberman promptly flips its weapon around to point in the opposite direction, only to incinerate itself instead of the Doctor. The Doctor then admits to the burning wreckage that his screwdriver doesn't affect wood.
