* DanBrowned: Script Editor Donald Tosh once went on record as claiming that the story, set around the 1881 Gunfight at the OK Corral, was historically accurate. Even though it gets such minor details as who was killed during the shootout and who was there wrong, along with making up fictional family members for the real-life participants.



* ThePianoPlayer: There's a subplot about the saloon trying to find a new piano player because their old one was shot last week. Eventually the Doctor's companions are forced to play at gunpoint.
--> '''Dodo''': "Do you know the song?"
--> '''Steven''': "Let's hope the piano knows it!"



* TitleDrop: The Doctor introduces himself to the Earps with a very long, muttered name, provoking the response "Doctor who?"
--> '''The Doctor''': "Precisely".



* TheWestern: A surprisingly rare genre in ''Doctor Who''. The next one wouldn't be until the Eleventh Doctor visited [[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E3ATownCalledMercy "A Town Called Mercy"]] in 2012.

* 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.

* GenreSavvy: Doc Holliday realizes the incredible chance of a TalkativeLoon calling himself "Doctor" and "admitting" he's (ON A) Holiday may prove very useful to him. Also knows when to leave town and when to come back. ''And'' he knows Johnny's tactics, so he proves very useful in the fight. ''And'' he caries a spare gun in case he'd be forced to drop his main one. Guy's a survivor through and through.
