In next week's episode, "A Town Called Mercy," premiering Saturday, Sept. 15 at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on SPACE, The Doctor (Matt Smith) gets a Stetson (and a gun!) and finds himself the reluctant Sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg, who goes by the name of "The Gunslinger." But who is he and what does he want? The answer seems to lie with the mysterious Kahler-Jex, another alien doctor whose initial appearance is hiding a dark secret.
