Late Sat Mid EDT The Gunfighters movie (A Holiday For The Doctor, Don't Shoot The Pianist, Johnny Ringo, The OK Corral)
Doctor Who - The Musical. The 1st Doctor, Steven, and Dodo are roped into the deadly Gunfight at the OK Corral. A mixture of comedy and sinister overtones, with action punctuated by the ballad that splits fandom up into those that believe it to be cool and those that find it bloody awful. Doctor Who rides roughshod over the Old West, and the result is a forgotten classic. No real American accents were harmed in the making of this teleproduction.
