I love the Rani! And, my personal headcanon is that Rani Chandra IS the Rani, but she reverted herself to infancy and went through the Chameleon Arc to make herself human. Her parents were a couple who were going to have a baby, but she switched herself with the infant.
I think this is your most BRILLIANT cutie mark idea. It's time related for Time Lords, and it's a very complicated time device. That's the Rani in a nut shell. In her three appearances (including the 30th anniversary) Her schemes were more ridiculously complicated than the Master's or the Monks. It's so perfect, that you're a genius!
well considering she was a timelord, and the doctor had to (supposedly) kill off all the timelords, I'd deduce that she got the short end of the stick, along with poor Romana, but here's hoping otherwise!
Ah yes, one of the other recurring Renegades. Didn't have as much impact on me as the Master though, still, she somehow seemed colder. The Master seeks to make the Doctor acknowledge him as an intellectual equal, and have him rule by his side, at least originally. The Rani simply has no ethics outside of science, which makes her, in my eyes, more dangerous.
It's okay, neither can I. I chose an astronomical clock for two reasons. 1-it looks pretentious and complicated. 2- I have no idea which regeneration the Rani's on, so I wanted it to be a little vague.
She looks great! I love her expression. Good to see the villains getting ponyfied. I personally am really curious as to what exactly the Valeyard's cutie mark would be, since he's the Doctor's evil side. Although I suppose he'd have his cutie mark covered for the duration of the Doctor's trial (the only time we meet him, sadly) so as not to give himself away.
Or a incomplete one? He technically didn't steal the Doctors body and going by the cutie mark logic in this Pony!Whoiverse, a time lord stealing a body causes their timepieces to break. Plus he was created 'somewhere between the Doctor's 12th and 13th incarnations' and was promised the Doctor's remaining lives if he convicted him. So if he doesn't have other lives, that means he can't regenerate and therefore isn't really a 'proper' time lord.
If it were up it me, I'd probable do just the top part of the Hourglass with sand pouring out of it - since his time is running out and at the moment he has nothing to catch it back (i.e. he doesn't have other lives). Either way, I don't know how many times I've said this (probably not enough) but awesome work! Again, prefect facial expression. Keep up the great work!!!
I really hope they bring the Rani back. If they decide to bring back any enemies from the Classic series, I hope it'll be her. The Doctor needs more recurring villains that are individual people, and not entire species.
I doubt we'll see her in Series 7, since her creators haven't sold their rights to her and I think they'd have a basic idea on what all the episodes will be like by now. So maybe Series 8, or the 50th Anniversary.
It's possible other Time Lords to have simply done a runner at any point during the Time War before the Time Lock (Chameleon Archs are a handy little plot device as proven by the Master). If the Master can do it, why not the Rani or any Time Lord for that matter. Plus, the Doctor doesn't appear to have actually tried searching for anyone else since he keeps assuming everything with his all knowing "I just know" sense.
Awesome piece as always. Love how her eyes seem to say "It's always morals and ethics with you, Doctor."
