O’Mara Wants Rani Return


Kate O’Mara has revealed that she would love to return as Doctor Who villainess the Rani.

O’Mara told Digital Spy: “I would love to come back. I have white hair now, but a lot of it, and I’m still very glamorous and so I won’t disappoint, I hope! I’ll still be wearing the tight leather trousers and high-heel boots, regardless of what age! That’s what the fans are expecting, so that’s what you’ve got to give them.”

“I’m a much older woman and there’s a huge population of older people who, if they’re watching television, they can’t watch Hollyoaks.

“If you put a much older woman in Doctor Who, they can identify with it. I think it’s quite an interesting concept and if you remember things like Grimm’s Fairytales, the older woman is often the villainess, often the terrifying figure – why I do not know, but often she is. I think it’s an idea to be exploited.”

However, O’Mara probably shouldn’t hold her breath. Moffat previously stated that he wouldn’t bring the character back: “No one knows who the Rani is… There’s no point in bringing her back. If there’s a line it’s probably somewhere there.”
