Gillian Anderson to Play Rani on Doctor Who - Daily Telegraph reports that Gillian Anderson, known to many as Agent Scully from The X-Files, is heading to a brand new science-fiction franchise, as she prepares to appear in Doctor Who. Anderson will appear as The Rani, acting opposite Matt Smith's Doctor. When the Master re-appeared in the third season of the revived Doctor Who, showrunner Russel T. Davies joked that the hand which claimed the Master's ring in the last episode was that of Rani (Adam called that). Davies said he had no plans to use that storyline himself, but said it was included for future production teams who wanted to bring either the Master or Rani back.
