    I'd love to see Gillian Anderson play a role in the fifth series. But I wish people would get past the Rani coming back rumors. Was she that important that her character needs to be resurrected? Some things should be left in the past. Let Dimensions in Time be the final word on The Rani. Seems fitting.

Something to say?
