The Doctor attempts to throw Kahler Jex out of A Town Called Mercy

Christmas in Heaven?

A fascinating report from the location set of A Town Called Mercy has appeared in online publication The Quietus, featuring interviews with Matt Smith, Arthur Darvill and guest stars Adrian Scarborough and Andrew Brooke.

The Doctor attempts to throw Kahler Jex out of A Town Called MercyYou’ll want to read the piece, but we thought we would just highlight how excited Adrian Scarborough – known to millions as Upstairs, Downstairs butler Mr. Pritchard and playing Kahler Jex here – appears to be about filming not only Doctor Who but in the old west set in Almeria.

Is that the archway from Once Upon A Time In The West? Oh, this is just heaven for me, it is all my Christmasses coming at once. Doctor Who and the Wild West, with a bit of sci fi thrown in. It is about as good as it gets.

I was having a think yesterday about whether I had done any sci-fi before, and I don’t think I have. One forgets! I don’t know why, though, because I am born to play these characters. Heavens, I would look marvelous as a Dalek!

There’s a touch of Pseud’s Corner (a section of Private Eye magazine) about his excitement, but bless him, it is a fantastic looking set – I think we’d all be that thrilled!

A Town Called Mercy airs tonight on BBC One & BBC HD at 7.35 pm, and BBC America at 9/8c.
