The con is on, Doctor Who does hustle 30 years in advance
16 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Doctor saves a scared and indignant Romana from the clutches of the shrivenzale, they hide behind some conveniently placed screens and are able to witness the con that's going on, it seems 'Hustle' was invented 30 years ago. The Graff seems fairly bright and rumbles Garron's plan, the Doctor and Romana are implicated too and sentenced to death.

The relic room set is beautifully done, it looks very plush and real, they did a great job, no shaky cardboard sets here. The Graff's bedroom is also beautifully done, I'd love that fireplace.

There is a certain charm to the Ribos Operation, it plays out like a typical 70's BBC costume drama, a little slow, well acted but not without its charm.

The costumes are excellent, it looks like a bit of money was spent, (Series 16 looks plush, whereas the next (17) looks a bit cheap in comparison,) Romana's, Garron's and The Graff's in particular look so good.

Cuthbertson continues to be an absolute joy as Garron. This is far better then the opener, it's a very good episode.
