The Gunfighters

Written by Donald Cotton

"So fill up your glasses, And join in the song. The law's right behind you, And it won't take long. So come, you coyotes And howl at the moon, Till there's blood upon the sawdust, In the last Chance Saloon!"

Tombstone, Arizona, 1881. The air is filled with the sounds of shooting, cussing, and toe-tapping tunes knocked out on the battered piano at the Last Chance Saloon. And then there is something less familiar: the wheezing, groaning sound of a Police Box materializing. The Doctor and his companions aren't the only newcomers in town. The Clanton brothers have ridden in to settle a grudge with Doc Holliday, the notorious gambler, drinker, and dentist. In the Wild West, tempers are short, guns are swift, and a moment's hesitation on the draw can mean death...
