A Town Called Mercy

Doctor Who | Season 7 | A Town Called Mercy

The Doctor gets a stetson (and a gun!) and finds himself the reluctant marshal of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg.


The Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companions Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) visiting the American Frontier, or “Wild West”, where they encounter a town which is cut off from the rest of the frontier until they hand over Kahler-Jex, an alien doctor, to a cyborg called the Gunslinger. However, the Gunslinger is a product of experiments by Jex to win a civil war on his planet, and the Doctor is unsure of what is the right thing to do.
