Not review: Doctor Who – 7×3 – A Town Called Mercy


In the UK: It was on Saturday. It’s on the iPlayer now
In the US: It was also on Saturday.

Erm, I haven’t watched it yet. Busy, busy, busy. Frank has and so has Stuart, so I’d suggest you read their reviews, which undoubtedly will be better than what I would have thrown together.

But cowboys, filmed in the US, Toby Whithouse, Ben Browder – sounds like it could have been good. Was it? Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick – or two Chris Chibnall scripts in a row? What did you think?

I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe.
