A Town Called Mercy 7.35pm to 8.20pm

Doctor Who – A Town Called Mercy

Saturday 15 September 7.35pm to 8.20pm
The Doctor gets a Stetson (and a gun!), and finds himself the reluctant Sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg, who goes by the name of the Gunslinger.

But who is he and what does he want? The answer seems to lie with the mysterious Kahler-Jex, an alien doctor (yes another one!) whose initial appearance is hiding a dark secret.

Writer – Toby Whithouse

Executive producers – Steven Moffat and Caroline Skinner

Producer – Marcus Wilson

Director – Saul Metzstein

    This was the episode I was excited for the least, but it impresses me so far, but I’ll wait til I’ve seen it before I rate it. 😉

    it’s gonna be like the god complex,toby whithouse other story,which the darker was darker as well as school reunion which he made and vampires in vencice

    toby themes are like the doctor’s mercy

    school reunion he mentioned about companions and time lords can have them forever and the doctor becoming a god with krillatanes

    vov he said about the doctor saving a race

    tgc he mentioned about the faith of amy in the doctor and room 11

    atcm,about the mercy of the doctor

    lots of it is based around companions and becoming gods,saving whole races.

    but in others he turns whole armies around,the silence and he killed these are somethemes

    the doctor’s mercy and faith

    his fame and name

    gods and power

    this is part of a big plan for doctor who

    Im not a western fan but Im looking forward to see the doctor’s darker side again in ATCM. ATCM I think amy will make the doctor reflect on solomon when he killed him and we know that the doctor is going to try and kill kahler jex cause of the cyborg keeps on terrorising and proberly killing people in the town. Cause amy now that believes he killed someone without no mercy and do the same with jex to save everyone and amy will disagree with hime as seen on the BBC America Trailer. (My Own Theory)

      The first three Dalek stories are all avaliable and all fantastic. But if you want something a bit more recent than that, Rememberence of the Daleks is very good.

      I would sugest some of the first Doctors (1-5) becuase the rest are more of looks than survival, exept for 9-11.

    it’s obviously that the gunslinger is a bounty hunter robot and Kahler-Jex is an alien criminal,maybe a war criminal or doctor.the gunslinger[not likely real name]is after Kahler-Jex,for his crimes.

    I’m really shocked for saying this, but the more info that we have for A Town Called Mercy, the more I dislike it. 🙁

    Personally, I can’t wait for Asylum of the Daleks, Dinosaurs on a Spaceship and The Angels Take Manhattan. 😀


      August 31st, 2012 - 10:33am

      why do you dislike it? ki think it may be a bit cheesey, trying to be all cowboy

    August 30th, 2012 - 5:09pm

      August 30th, 2012 - 5:58pm

      I think he meant to put that in the Radio Times it said to stay alert for a major, top-secret surprise just after the title sequence in Asylum of the Daleks.
