The Doctor develops an unmistakeable Wild West swagger as he bursts through the door of a dusty saloon somewhere in the American desert: “Tea! The strong stuff, but leave the bag in,” he demands of the popsy behind the bar. He and the Ponds have arrived in the small western town of Mercy, a place that is under siege from a cyborg who patrols the outskirts, threatening death to anyone who crosses his path.
Writer Toby Whithouse (Being Human) has fun with Wild West movie tropes, borrowing from High Noon and Bad Day at Black Rock as the Doctor (Matt Smith), riding a “telepathic” horse called Susan, is urged by the good townsfolk of Mercy to save them from the mysterious, menacing Gunslinger. The Doc might have an ally in a prisoner, a face-painted gentleman called Kahler-Jex (Adrian Scarborough) who claims that he, too, is a time-travelling doctor...
The time-travelling companions arrive in a Wild West town where the residents are being terrorised by a cyborg killing machine. The relentless gunslinger will stop at nothing until it has terminated the remaining name on its hit list - and unfortunately for the Time Lord, it turns out to be targeting an alien doctor. Matt Smith stars, with Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill.
