Sadly, Kate O'Mara passed away recently. She was 74. Famous as the Rani in two televised Doctor Who Shows (and Dimensions In Time special), Caress in Dynasty, and in Ab Fab, and Bad Girls. She will be missed

I was reading that she was hoping the Rani would be brought back for the revived series at some point, i.e. see how the Doctor would cope dealing with an elderly villain so to speak.

There was a rumor a few years back that the Rani was possibly gonna be played by Gillian Anderson (X-Files). I think she could do it.

Gonna spend tonight watching "Mark of the Rani", "Time & the Rani", and the Ab Fab with her in it. If I could find Bad Girls episodes with him in it, I'd watch them too.

I love the two times I seen her in Ab Fab, she was always trying to kill Patsy with an overdose. Not a nice sister but great comedy, especially when they discussed their mother!

I watched Time & the Rani on DVD. In the interviews, Kate talked about a scare she had. The scene where the Tetraps had her suspended from TARDIS ceiling. Originally, she was to be upside down, but while filming, her noise started bleeding and she passed out! So they quickly retooled the scene. I forgot the reason for the blood, but could this have been a sign of the health issues.
