Deputy Doctor

This week Doctor Who returns to the Wild West – the first time since 1966 when William Hartnell sought out a dentist in Dodge City during The Gunfighters.


As part of his Wild West adventure, it seems The Doctor picks up another Stetson (though it is not quite the same as the one seen in Closing Time and The Wedding Of River Song) and a Marshal badge! (see left)

It’s a nice simple addition to an Eleventh Doctor costume, so I’ve been looking around and have found some Marshal badges close, but not quite the same as The Doctor’s.

The first place I looked inevitably was eBay, where I found the follow.


This one’s quite nice, but a bit flat and without a boarder.

MARSHALL STAR BADGE BW - 70
Not badly priced at US$13.99


The lettering of this one is more central, but its a brass badge rather than white metal.

MARSHAL OLD WEST BADGE
Cheaper at US$9.99, but the metal is the wrong colour


This one has a boarder, though the lettering is a bit higher. Overall I like this one, and ordered it today.

MARSHALL STAR BADGE BW - 45
Also priced at US$13.99
