  1. Thanks for the info about the Sixth Doctor story – the title signals a clear relationship, although the plot summary suggests the content of tonight’s episode will be pretty different. You’ll have to let those of us who haven’t heard the Big Finish story know how they compare afterwards.

    I’ve also just realised, having popped over to Wikipedia to look up what we know about A Town Called Mercy, that it was filmed on the spaghetti western sets near Almería in Spain, which I visited about a dozen years ago on a family holiday. Exciting!
