Horror of Frankenstein. That's David Prowse as Dr Frankenstein's creation.

Well, I knew Kevin Spacey pushed her in front of a train a little bit ago, but I had no idea she was 74. She looked really good for her age.

Always bothers me that her and her sister never seem to smile much. They'd look really good. Instead they always look like they're pissed off about something.

I'm not a huge fan of the sister, but in Kate's case I'd guess it's a defense mechanism to keep every man in the vicinity (and some of the women too) from following her around like lost puppies.  She's hot enough without it.

Ah yes, I remember the Rani on the first Sylvester McCoy episode.  Would have been better without Mel, though.

Kevin Spacey must really hate the Giants AND the Steelers.

The Rani could have been one of the best villains in Doctor Who if she had been developed before the writer's stopped caring when they realized JNT was trying to sink the show. She wasn't the typical Doctor Who baddie - not a mustache twirling lunatic bent on controlling the universe or alien menace. She was scientific detachment and cold objectivity taken to ridiculous extremes - science without ethics. Her research was the only thing that she cared about in the entire universe - sentient creatures were test subjects nothing more and if she had to commit a few genocides or enslave a few species to get her data, so be it.

Of course later she gets all revenge fixated on the Doctor and became just another monologuing cookie cutter supervillain

You pretty much described why very few fans who started with NuWho will never give a rat's ass about any classic serials featuring The Master. Nobody wants a villain who is "evil for the sake of evil." Even kids' cartoons these days give more depth to their villains.

At least RTD made an attempt at explaining The Master's motivations. It would be interesting to see what a modern crew would do with a new incarnation of The Rani.

Here's one">Link

It may not be true but it's been repeated so often that it seems true and it does go a long way towards explaining how things fell off the rails so abruptly. Basically, JNT wanted the end of Davison's run to be his as well. BBC said no, we have a contract, you're staying. He gets pissed and decides he's going to do everything he can to tank the show so BBC have no choice but to fire him.,

The flipside of that is he is the only reason the last 3 seasons happened at all, by girding his Hawaiian shirt and being and keeping it on by sheer force of garish shirtness.

THe BBC was screwing with it bigtime, budgets, endless schedule changes, ect.

To be fair to JNT, he was told that if he didn't produce doctor who, it would be canceled. The head of the BBC hated Doctor Who and no other producer would touch it.

The fact is, he ran out of creative steam

I always thought she was Mexican because she played the Hispanic Hottie in Canon for Cordoba back in 1970.
The woman certainly did have some bodacious ta tas.
