The BBC have released a variety of photos to promote Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, which will premiere on BBC1 next Saturday at 7:35pm.

An unmanned spaceship hurtles towards certain destruction - unless the Doctor can save it, and its impossible cargo... of dinosaurs!

By his side a ragtag gang of adventurers, a big game hunter, an Egyptian Queen and a surprised member of the Pond family. But little does the Doctor know there is someone else on board who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo.

A Town Called Mercy

Meanwhile, the Radio Times has listed A Town Called Mercy to remain in the 7:35pm timeslot the following week; BBC Programme Information has yet to confirm the time, which will be finalised later in the week.

The Doctor gets a Stetson (and a gun!), and finds himself the reluctant Sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg, who goes by the name of the Gunslinger.

But who is he and what does he want? The answer seems to lie with the mysterious Kahler-Jex, an alien doctor (yes another one!) whose initial appearance is hiding a dark secret.
