Rate & Discuss: A Town Called Mercy
The Doctor gets a Stetson and a gun and finds himself the reluctant sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg.
Yeee-haw! Series 7 of Doctor Who continued tonight as the Doctor, Amy and Rory went straight to the Wild Wild West in Toby Whithouse’s A Town Called Mercy. With the long overdue return of the Stetson and a cyborg on the loose, is it be set to be a cult classic?
While a Western town was held under siege, it was down to the Doctor to save the day – but what else is new? He wasn’t facing the forces alone though, as he was accompanied by his band of ever intrepid adventurers (that’s Amy and Rory to you and I!), who were on hand to save the town and its inhabitants from the might of the terrifying Gunslinger…
To get to the bottom of the mystery, the time traveling trio turned to Kahler-Jex, an alien Doctor (not to be confused with…) who seemed to be hiding a big secret of his own.
We saw the more “volatile” side of the Doctor as promised by Toby Whithouse but was it too far out of your comfort zone? Did it make for the ultimate showdown, or were you begging for Mercy from start to finish? As always, the comments are waiting – round up!
