Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

The Good, the Bad and the Alien was a novel in the Doctor Who 2 in 1 books range.

Publisher's summary[]

There's more to the Wild West than cowboys...

The Doctor treats Rory to a trip to the Wild West, where the TARDIS crew find a ghost town full of sleeping people and the Black Hand Gang; outlaws intent on robbing the local bank. But it's not quite the same as the films Rory's seen on TV. They soon discover they're not the only visitors to Mason City, Nevada and find themselves in a showdown against the alien Cemar!
