The Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves in the American wild west sometime in the 19th century. The small town has a Marshal but they're not that keen on the new arrivals. They are also under threat from an alien, a half-man half-robot hunter who is out to eliminate the Doctor. Not the Doctor we know but another, Kahler Jex, who has escaped from his world. He's done many good things for the local community but his past is somewhat questionable. When the Marshall is killed, it's left to the Doctor to decide how best to proceed. Written by

Although in a situation as desperate and bizarre as this, the town likely would have skipped the formalities of an election. See more
Uh, the sign does say 'keep out.'
I see 'keep out' signs as suggestions more than actual orders. Like 'dry clean only.'
