Doctor Who Set Pics Give Us Our First Look At The Spaghetti Western Episode And Its Villain

Stetsons continue to be cool as The Doctor gets in the saddle for the shooting of Toby Whithouse and Saul Metzstein‘s Spaghetti Western episode, apparently set to be the third in the new run. Here’s a series of shots of Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill. Who seems to be having the most fun probably depends on your feelings about horse riding in tweed in the blazing heat. I hope they at least let him loosen his bow tie a little.

And who is that strange figure in front of the green screen? I mean… it’s not The Doctor, is it? I wonder if it’s Farscape‘s Ben Browder, who is guest starring in the episode? Hard to tell from this picture…

Well, here he is with most of his clothes off. Still hard to tell if it’s Browder, because there’s make-up at work but I’d be very surprised to see him cast as some kind of Westworld-gone-Robocop Cybercowboy. The villain, by all accounts.

Thanks to the scrub-hopping paps of Whovians and Spoiler TV for the pics.
