Doctor Who: A Town Called Mercy
by Toby Whithouse; dir. Saul Metzstein (BBC, 2012)
Whithouse delivers unto the Wild West setting a diverting yet not insubstantial self-contained episode. Ben Browder makes a compelling marshal. Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill put in nuanced performances to balance Matt Smith’s uncommonly volatile embodiment of delighted child and world-weary ancient.
