If you were quick enough to spot any errors, mistakes or bloopers throughout this story, then jot them down in here and share them with everyone else Smiley

The Doctor kept calling him 'Mr Wearp' instead of 'Mr Earp'

Half the people who appear in the story weren't actually there when the gunfight took place, even though they are based on real characters.

The Doctor accidently (at least I think) refers to Steven as a girl

Yes, Bat Masterson worked with Wyatt Earp in Dodge City, not in Tombstone, and Johnny Ringo wasn't there.  The marshall of Tombstone was actually Virgil Earp, and he was seen at the time as the leader.  Wyatt didn't have an official position as a lawman at the time - Virgil just deputised him on a temporary basis as the crisis blew up.

Just how many chambers did those guns have?

The gunfight actually took place in the afternoon, not early morning, and it was a face-to-face fight that only lasted 30 seconds.  It was also not a set-up - the Earps had gone to arrest the cowboys (only two of whom were actually Clantons) who had gathered in town.

In one of the bar scenes in the first episode, you can see a camera in the mirror behind the bar.

Why would it be intentional? Huh?

I mean that it's deliberate in the script as a running gag on the Doctor's habit of getting names wrong, not that the Doctor's doing it deliberately.  He's W. Earp, so the Doctor runs it together.

Added to this, wasn't it not even at the Corral?

I believe that's true.
