Rewatch! Oh this one's rich. Buried in a box somewhere in the old west is an Evil Head. A psychically sensitive young woman finds it and immediately becomes its mind-controlled minion, and about 50% sluttier because we all know Evil Heads yearn to possess young women so that they can get it on by proxy. Eventually it manipulates the other people on the dude ranch (they have about 100 head of dude) to uncover the rest of its body and reunite the two, which seal together making it whole sure why not. Sadly, it then is knocked over and re-croaks, this time permanently, about 20 seconds later. So much for the power of evil. In the words of Paul Chaplin: "Alternate title: The Thing That Died." In the subplot, it's Observer Time. Previously.

My wife recently made friends with a coworker named Jessica, and every time she says her name I hear the Allman Brothers in my head. Tom Servo stutter singing while Aunt Flavia yells out the window remains one of my favorite bits. I start to giggle every time I think of it.

Oh, this is different than The Brain That Wouldn’t Die?

It is! This also has to do with an evil head, but it's magic not science.

Aunt Flavia is, of course, the Doctor's aunt.
