The Patriot Resource - Tombstone

Doc Holliday
Doc Holliday

Portrayed by: Val Kilmer

Suggested by: Doc Holliday


Doc Holliday is a dentist who makes his true living as a gambler. He has come West because of his tuberculosis. He has already established himself in Tombstone when the Earps arrive. He and Wyatt Earp are good friends from Dodge City, Kansas, while Virgil Earp is cool, but respectful to his younger brother's friend. Doctors have advised him to refrain from long nights at the gambling table in addition to alcohol and even bedroom activities, all of which his girlfriend Kate encourages him to do.

It does not take long for Doc Holliday and Johnny Ringo to establish a rivalry, mostly because they are strikingly similar. Both know Latin and border on the sadistic, while Doc has mainly managed to keep on the right side of the law, Ringo crossed over. Even so, they seem to be opposite sides of the same coin. Their rivalry culminates in a final showdown that Doc wins in spite of being ill.
