The Lark of the Rani is the 1985 third serial of the 22nd season in the British science fiction television series Doctor Colin. This story is the first ever story (GET HYPE) to feature the renegade female Time Lord known as The Rani and the first story to be written by terror twins Pip and Jane Baker.

It's also the last Colin Baker story to get a page on this wiki. That's not to say it's his worst, in fact, if you agree with Gareth then it's one of his best.

Plot Edit

Something is amiss in the mining village of Killingworth in 19th-century England. Miners are being gassed in the washhouse. The Sixth Doctor and Peri arrive and thoroughly approve. Later we find out the Rani is actually running the washhouse and using it to experiment on people, presumably continuing where Josef Mengele left off. Oh and she's teamed up with The Mattress for shits and giggles.

Continuity Edit

Kate O'Mara reprised the role of the Runny twice, in the Seventh Doctor's debut story Time and the Rani (1987) and the 30th anniversary charity special Dimensions in Time (1993).

No explanation is given as to the Mattress escaping his fiery demise at the end of Planet of Fire (1984).

Trivia Edit

The working titles for this story were Too Clever By Far and Enter The Rani.
