  • James Butler Hickok (May 27, 1837 – August 2, 1876), better known as Wild Bill Hickok, was a famous Earth lawman. He was shot in the back while playing cards, and was the origin of the Dead Man's Hand involving aces and eights. Tobin Dax learned all of this from the book, 99 Great Card Tricks You Can Learn in Your Spare Time. (DS9 - The Lives of Dax short story: "Dead Man's Hand")
  • Hickock had a range of jobs during his life in the west, from stagecoach driver to actor to scout for General George A. Custer. He is most notorious for his life as a lawman and gunfighter, and for being assassinated during a poker game in the dangerous town of Deadwood. Hickock was a highly skilled and extremely deadly gunfighter. At one point he was arrested for killing a man in a duel, but he was acquitted. He killed quite a few men in his lifetime.
  • Hickok came to the West in the little-known Boron Rush of 1849. To help finance his Boron-seeking operation, he became a part-time stagecoach driver. He spent most of his time in the territories of Nebraska and Kansas, progressing from stagecoach driver to stagecoach driver/lawman, and finally to lawman. He served in the Union army during the American Civil War, giving his allegiance to Lincoln and his modest beard over Jefferson Davis' pretty-boy hairstyle. He gained publicity after the war as a scout, marksman, skilled juggler, and professional gambler. Hickok was involved in countless Wild West shootouts, often shooting people off of roofs and using cactusses for cover, among other Wild West stereotypes. He was ultimately killed while playing poker in a Dakota Territory saloon.
  • Wild Bill Hickok is a historical gunman from the American Old West.
  • Wild Bill Hickok was a historical figure from Earth. He was shot in the back during a poker game in Deadwood; his hand, a pair of aces and a pair of eights, became known as the "Dead Man's Hand". (PROSE: Too Rich for My Blood) After his death, he was briefly artificially resurrected as part of a scheme by Es'Cartrss to see revenge on the Eleventh Doctor and planet Earth. He ultimately sacrificed his resurrected life to help foil those plans. (COMIC: Dead Man's Hand) Peri Brown referred to Kevin as "Wild Bill Hickok" for his wild shooting. (PROSE: The Nightmare Fair)

  • Wild Bill Hickok was a historical figure from Earth. He was shot in the back during a poker game in Deadwood; his hand, a pair of aces and a pair of eights, became known as the "Dead Man's Hand". (PROSE: Too Rich for My Blood) After his death, he was briefly artificially resurrected as part of a scheme by Es'Cartrss to see revenge on the Eleventh Doctor and planet Earth. He ultimately sacrificed his resurrected life to help foil those plans. (COMIC: Dead Man's Hand) Peri Brown referred to Kevin as "Wild Bill Hickok" for his wild shooting. (PROSE: The Nightmare Fair) Ted, an orderly in a San Francisco hospital, was going to go to a New Year's Eve party in 1999 dressed as Hickok, until the newly-regenerated Eighth Doctor stole the costume from Ted's locker and adopted it as his regular outfit. (TV: Doctor Who) The Eighth Doctor continued to wear the costume or similar ones. Julius Otago thought that he was trying for a Lord Byron look which he said would be tragic if it didn't impress the ladies. After correcting him, the Doctor informed Julius that he hadn't had any complaints. (COMIC: Children of the Revolution) In an alternative timeline created by , the Fourth Doctor correctly identified the Eighth Doctor's clothes as a Wild Bill Hickok outfit. The Eighth Doctor commented that people often mistook it for a Lord Byron costume. (AUDIO: The Light at the End) The Eighth Doctor continued to wear variations of the Hickok outfit until changing to other styles of clothes later in his life. (AUDIO: The Great War; TV: The Night of the Doctor) Although the Eleventh Doctor later encountered the resurrected Hickok, no reference was made to the costume; ironically, however, when temporary companion Oscar Wilde found himself in need of clothes, the Doctor gave him his Hickok outfit.
