The opening of this episode is very Terminator-like and if you just watched the first minute or so, then you'd have no idea that what was to follow would be a Wild West themed adventure.

This episode has been well written by Toby Whithouse and it really shows off the best of Doctor Who. One thing that I did notice in this episode was the brilliant soundtrack. It's typical Wild West music and really is Murray Gold at his best. You will definitely notice the brilliant score in this episode and I'm sure you'll enjoy it also.
This episode really is good and in my opinion could go on for more than 45 minutes and it definitely has that blockbuster look and feel, as Steven Moffat promised for every episode this series. The cast, production team and Murray Gold all deserve credit for creating such a brilliant episode and a fantastic soundtrack.
A Town Called Mercy will not disappoint and you're in for a outstanding Wild West themed adventure with The Doctor, Amy and Rory and not forgetting Susan! This is only the second time that a Doctor Who episode has been Wild West themed and I can tell you now that it is brilliant.
The Gallifrey Times Rating 9/10
