Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Toby Whithouse Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 15, 2012 DOCTOR WHO returns to the Wild, Wild West with “A Town Called Mercy” this week, and this is a considerable step up from “The Gunfighters.” Sure the 1960’s adventure had famous western names to boast, but this new episode has a really nifty cyborg and some fun moments here and there, plus a new Stetson for the Doctor.

Stars: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill Writer: Chris Chibnall  Director:  Saul Metzstein  Network: BBC America, airs Saturday nights Original Telecast: September 8, 2012 So after last week’s premiere of DOCTOR WHO, there are a lot of plot elements  left hanging in the air. This is typical of the more modern incarnation of WHO, where through lines are established in the first episode of a new series, and then carried until the end of that series, and sometimes beyond.
