Doctor Who - The Key to Time - The Ribos Operation - Story One - PAL - DVDR
THE RIBOS OPERATION is the story that introduced, not only the quest but a new model of K9 and Mary Tamm as the Time Lady, Romana. Now Mary Tamm has lived in the shadow of Lalla Ward who portrayed the second Romana for some years but is in actual fact just as good as if not better than her successor. She plays the part with a superior know-it-all attitude which irritates the Doctor greatly and there is real friction between them which is refreshing.
This story was written by Robert Holmes, who was without a doubt the greatest writer ever to work on the show, the script simply drips with humour and sophistication and features a trade mark Robert Holmes double act and is the best story of the season.
