YMMV / Doctor Who S16 E1 "The Ribos Operation"

Go To

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Both the Doctor and Romana (as well as others) claim to be from the North. Apparently, this is one of the planets that does have a North.
  • Ho Yay: The Graff and Sholakh, particularly in the latter's death scene.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Cyril Luckham as the White Guardian. He does nothing but sit in a chair and set up the plot for the season in the first five minutes of the first episode, but eerily sticks in your mind.
    The Doctor: You mean nothing will happen to me?
    White Guardian: Nothing at all. Ever.
  • Special Effect Failure: The Shrivenzale is poor even by contemporary standards.
    • On the other hand (considering this is the YMMV page) the costume is really quite good, considering the episode was made in 1978 on a budget nowhere near the levels of Star Wars.


How well does it match the trope?
