A Town Called Mercy

A Town Called Prelude

Well that’s another exclusive prelude up on iTunes, for A Town Called Mercy this time. So unless you’re on iTunes you’ll need to wait to the DVD/Blu Ray release to see it.

*Cough* YouTube *Cough*

On one hand I’m a bit annoyed I didn’t get to see this Prelude before last Saturday’s A Town Called Mercy, but on the other it would have ruined the revelation of Jax’s involvement with the Gunslinger.

I genuinely don’t understand the need to make any part of Doctor Who restricted. It puzzled me when it was suggested for Torchwood: Miracle Day, even if that only ended up being an extended trailer on the UK version, and I still don’t understand it now.

A quick YouTube search reveals no such prelude for Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (although don’t take my word for it, it was a very quick search) so it would appear that this isn’t happening for every episode of the new series. The real question now is when will it happen next and will it be generally available prior to the episode it’s serving as a prelude to?

We’ll see…


Alasdair Shaw dabbled in Who throughout the 80s, but didn’t really get into it properly until 1989. His sense of timing has not improved over the years. He’s a third generation Who fan as well as a father of three. When not working as a lab technician or writing for Kasterborous Alasdair runs the Doctor Who Reprint Society for which he writes In Print and Dangling Threads. He’s a big fan of the Valeyard, but that’s neither here nor there. He has never worked for UNIT and is not related to Dr Liz Shaw.
