The Doctor proves cowboys are cool in 32 pics from Who's western ep

The BBC has released quite a lot of new promo pics from Doctor Who's next episode, "A Town Called Mercy," in which the Doctor (Matt Smith) goes on a Wild Wild West adventure with his ever-faithful companions the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) and wears a Stetson again, 'cause Stetsons are cool.

The third episode of season seven is written by Being Human creator and frequent Who collaborator Toby Whithouse and will feature a highly anticipated guest stint by Stargate SG-1 and Farscape's Ben Browder.

This is the short BBC blurb:

The Doctor gets a Stetson (and a gun!), and finds himself the reluctant sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg.

Have a look at the gallery and let us know what you think of those pics. Are you guys looking forward to seeing more of the Doctor's shenanigans in the Westorld-inspired episode "A Town Called Mercy," or are you more excited about seeing fan favorite Ben Browder?
