Doctor Who Alumni Team Up For British “Paintball Expendables”
Riding into town comes Bleeding Cool with more news on IDW writer Tony Lee’s contemporary Western The Mild Bunch – developed in collaboration with Second Doctor companion Frazer Hines; and it’s a fabulous concept.
…and now the rusty gun must be holstered. The tin badge must be shined. But will our Magnificent Seven ride again?
As reported previously, Lee and Hines had long been attending the same Doctor Who conventions and had begun talking about their own ambitions, with Hines bemoaning the lack of good parts for actors of a certain age in films.
