We are limping towards the end of the Hartnell Era now and it doesn't seem to have come too soon. The only fear is that Troughtons stories are so few on the ground. It really will be recon Hell.
Anyway, The Gunfighters. Often championed as the worst story ever it certainly doesn't deserve that accolade. However there are not many accolades it does deserve. Dull and predictable perhaps? Most annoying score (fuck off with your “Ballad of the Last Chance Saloon”). I honestly struggled with this one finding it neither funny (as intended) or dramatic. It just rather tiresome.
Coming up… The Savages a story I have never seen (and still wont as it will be recon time)
OH DODO MY DEAR, WHY WERE YOU NOT SHOT?
