Storyline

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 garykmcd

A fun episode that shows 11's dark side
14 October 2018 | by xxswagzbeastzxxSee all my reviews

A fun concept that does a great job of showing us that 11 isn't always as good as containing his anger than his earlier selves.
