From Wikipedia, that bastion of all things true and believable:
[T]he BBC and [Russell T.] Davies denied an August report in The Sun that the Rani would return in [series 3], played by Zöe Lucker. (This claim was repeated by The Daily Record in November.)
Oh my GOD, that would SUCK! The Rani is one of the worst Doctor Who villains ever (which is no surprise considering she was created by Pip and Jane Baker, a husband and wife writing team who penned some of the absolute worst Doctor Who serials of the late '80s).
If you're going to bring back a renegade Time Lord to vex the Doctor, Mr. Davies, the Rani is so not the way to go. You know who it needs to be. We all know who it needs to be.
