Oh, and another thing

As it happens, this morning I was re-watching the first episode of The Gunfighters, a generally forgotten 1966 story where the Tardis lands in Tombstone, Arizona, specifically at the OK Corral, and William Hartnell's Doctor is offered a gun for self-defence by the local dentist, Doc Holliday. As with Tennant's Doctor this evening, he refuses to take it at first, but (in rather more comic than dramatic terms) does so in the end. I don't know if it was a deliberate reference, but pleasing all the same.
