189 – Strange Matter of Time and the Rani

7&7 continues with the very first story of the 7th Doctor’s era. Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and Lynne as we talk about the rocky early days of Sylvester McCoy’s run on the show. As you might expect, there’s also a lot of talk about the Rani, and even some love for Mel. If you’re hoping for an hour of slagging-off this story, kindly try another podcast, because we can’t help you.

What do you think of “Time and the Rani”, or the 7th Doctor, or the Rani, or Mel, or anything else we covered here? Let us know in the comments!

Verity! Extra! – The Rani, Remembered

VerityExtraKateOmara-300This week’s Extra is somewhat melancholy. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, and Lynne as we remember the Rani and pay tribute to the contribution of the late Kate O’Mara. Cold, sharp, stylish, snarky, and oh-so-delightful, the Rani is one of the Verities’ most beloved Gallifreyan villains. Why do we love her? What made her special? Can/should the Rani return in another guise?
