R.I.P. The Rani
Very sorry to hear that Kate O'Mara has died, aged 74, after a short illness. Whilst the Rani stories were never among my favourites, I did like Kate and enjoyed her performances. She was no stranger to fantasy roles. I just happened to watch Hammer's The Vampire Lovers last night, in which she features.
The Rani is one of those characters that fans often clamour to see returning. Sadly, should it ever happen, it won't be with Kate.
This comes on the same day that it was announced that classic series director Derek Martinus (The Tenth Planet, The Ice Warriors, Spearhead From Space) passed away.
R.I.P. to both.
