TV PREVIEW: Doctor Who Series 7 Episode 3: A Town Called Mercy

Doctor Who Logo - 2010 Version

It’s time for the first Who western since 1965’s The Gunfighters. This time, the crew face a Gunslinger (see what I did there? Linktastic!). Toby Whithouse’s script is the midpoint in the middle of the five pre-Christmas episodes, but will it be a hump or a slump? You’ll have to wait until Saturday 15 September 2012 at 19:35 in the evening to find out. But if you want a few hints at what you can expect from the episode, click More to see my ten  preview hints.
