Back in the gun-totin', hard-hittin', fast-shootin' days of the Old Wild West, when outlaws ruled the land and the good guys stayed off the streets, a troupe of travelling players - Miss Dodo Dupont, Steven Regret and the mysterious Doctor Caligari - moseyed into the town of Tombstone one October afternoon. Their method of transportation was a mite peculiar though.
After all, a police box materialising out of thin air sure ain't the usual way to enter a sedate town like Tombstone...
And when the Doctor and his pardners meet up with Wyatt Earp and the notorious Clanton brothers, they soon find out that the scene is all set for high noon at the O. K. Corral... Shane Rimmer, who played Seth Harper in the original BBC TV serial, reads Donald Cotton's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1985.
At the end of the last story the Doctor broke his tooth, now he needs a Dentist. He ends up going to one of the most dangerous Dentists in history Doc Holiday. This story marks two major points in Doctor Who long history. One. This is the Doctors first adventure in America. Two. This is the beginning of the end of the purely historic stories. The televised story this book is based on is considered one the worst Doctor who adventures ever made . I've watched the DVD version of show, and I agree with the verdict. It was horrible. The book version I liked better, it had the right amount of humor that I liked. Donald Cotton did a great job with it. Read the book, skip the DVD.
