The Doctor has a toothache, so when the TARDIS materialises in 1881 Tombstone, Arizona, his first priority is to find a dentist. But the dentist turns out to be the infamous Doc Holliday, on the run from the Clanton brothers and their hired gunman, Johnny Ringo.
The Doctor, Steven and Dodo must ally themselves with Holliday and sheriff Wyatt Earp against the Clantons, or else they, too, will be singing The Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon.
Contains an example of the “Doctor Who?” running joke – When introducing himself and his companions to Bat Masterson, The Doctor creates aliases for the group, and says of himself, “And lastly, sir, your humble servant, Doctor, er, Caligari.” Masterson, confused, asks, “Doctor who?” to which The Doctor responds, “Yes, quite right.”
