Our beloved Doctor (Matt Smith) and his companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory (Arthur Darvill) are going to the Wild Wild West this Saturday in ''A Town Called Mercy'' and—as you guys know—they'll encounter a ruthless cyborg villain called the Gunslinger. And you can meet him right here, right now, in this intense new Who preview clip.

The Stetson-wearing villain (remember, Stetsons are cool) played by Andrew Brooke is hunting down his prey in this pre-title sequence that reminds us a little (okay, make that a lot) of a cross between one of James Cameron's Terminator machines and Westworld's Yul Brynner's rogue amusement park robot villain—and they even got the same monicker: The ''Gunslinger.''

Well, ain't that peachy? (Seriously, why is there never a good spittoon around when you need one?)

Have a look at the brand-new clip, but before you do, we urge you guys to "make peace with your gods."

Do you think the Doctor and his companions will have their work cut out for them? Oh, and don't forget:

Ben Farscape/SG-1 Browder. That is all.

Doctor Who airs this Saturday on BBC One, BBC America and SPACE.
