* AllKnowingSingingNarratorAllKnowingSingingNarrator: Always recaps what has just happened and occasionally foreshadows between scene changes. Also really likes to end every verse in "...at the Last Chance Saloon."

* OutOfGenreExperience: This is the show's only MusicalEpisode, though [[MusicalWorldHypotheses most of the singing is not done by the characters]]. (There has been a stage musical and an audio drama musical in the ExpandedUniverse, though.)

* AdaptationExpansion: Donald Cotton's novelisation has Doc Holliday relating the story's narrative from his deathbed!



* AllThereInTheManual: The novelisation gives some backstory. Reuben Clanton, specified as the eldest brother, was killed by Holliday for cheating at cards and Holliday proposed to Kate after she set fire to the tavern to stop Reuben's friends killing him. Ringo spends much of his earnings as a hired gun on classic works and delights in conversing with the Doctor in Latin phrases, while Phineas repeatedly tries to come up with colourful similes. Pa Clanton is campaigning to be mayor, with most of the onlookers at the gunfight being his supporters.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The Doctor claims that he doesn't touch alcohol, preferring milk instead. Later Doctors would throw this rule out the window.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Played with: As the Doctor and Steven climb the stairs, the barkeep looks directly at the camera and says, "Looks like Doc's next extraction's gonna be a bullet," supposedly to the pair.

* IdiotBall: The Doctor, in addition to being more of a CloudCuckooLander in general, forgets that frontier dentistry is MeatGrinderSurgery, [[TheTeetotaler refuses whiskey]] even to numb the pain of a tooth extraction, and refuses to believe that Doc Holiday is trying to use him as a decoy and is not actually his friend even though it's blatantly obvious.

Added DiffLines:

* BriefAccentImitation: Steven and Dodo adopt absolutely horrible [[note]]pity the actual American characters' accents aren't much better[[/note]] American accents while trying to be cowboys in 1880s Tombstone. The natives of Tombstone just assume Steven and Dodo are insane. The Doctor sticks to his usual English accent and blends in a lot better.
