Doc West arrives in Holysand to hustle the locals at cards but finds himself caught between two warring families. Because of Doc’s exceptional abilities, gunslinging, prowess of wit, and a secret past as a doctor, the sheriff, an orphan and a beautiful, strong-minded school teacher want to keep him around, but that will be tough to do.

‘Doc West’ was originally designed to be a two season TV series consisting of 22 episodes but typically the funding could not be obtained and only two TV films were produced and filmed: ‘Doc West’ and ‘Triggerman’. The two films were shot in Santa Fe, New Mexico and used some of the sets from Hill’s former ‘Lucky Luke’ TV series. In spite of that when ‘Doc West’ premiered on Italian TV it was the most watched program that evening.
