Ladieswear

Swimsuits at the ready! The new Baywatch movie hits our screens at the end of the month and we actually.can’t.wait. Starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron, it’s sure to be hilarious, tongue-in-cheek and slightly ridiculous (obvs).

In the meantime, we thought we’d take a look at what made the oh-so-cheesy 80′s mega-hit show so darn great – from the running scenes to the one-liners, along with a few fab facts even the biggest fan might not know…

ALL the Slow Mo Running

Ah, that famous running along the beach, as slow as their legs could carry them! This iconic calling card of the show has inspired a thousand parodies, sketches the world over – from Friends to The Muppets – and even a ‘slow-motion’ marathon, happening to celebrate the new film (in case you’re wondering how it works – people have to reach the finish line of the .2k race in the ‘slowest and sexiest’ fashion, to win!

But why the slow motion running on Baywatch in the first place, we hear you ask? Whatever the unintended consequences, it was apparently inspired by one of the producers shooting sprinters in a similar way at the 1988 Olympic Games. David Hasselhoff also claimed recently that is helped to paid out the 50-minute running slot on their super-low budget.

Whatever the reasons, we love it and are totally working on our own runs this summer – iPhones at the ready…

The total legend that is the Hoff…

Whether he was swimming speedboat-style or judging bikini contests, David Hasselhoff aka Mitch Buchannon was head and shoulders the best, most dedicated lifeguard with his action-packed and always totally believable, not at ALL far-fetched *ahem* plots (delivering a baby on the beach, anyone?) In fact, the Hoff himself pretty much saved Baywatch from tanking – in the US, people weren’t big fans it at first (we know, right?!) and David voluntarily took a pay cut to help fund an overseas revival, where people had been loving it. A hero on the beach and off – what a legend!

…Who may have starred alongside Leo!

In another life, Leonardo DiCaprio might have been playing Mitch’s son Hobie! As unlikely as it sounds, producers auditioned the 15-year-old but they felt he was slightly too old for the part so cast actor Jeremy Jackson, four years younger than Leo, instead. David Hasselhoff now jokes that it was the best thing that ever happened to Leo as we wouldn’t have had him in Titanic, Romeo and Juliet and countless other 90s and beyond roles. Thanks, Baywatch!

Michael Newman was a real lifeguard called…Michael Newman

For all the show’s over the top drama, they did bring some touches of authenticity – namely Michael Newman, who played a supporting role doing stunts, helping cast members on rescue protocol and sharing real rescue stories as inspo for story plots (maybe those crazy storylines weren’t so crazy after all!) Pro-surfer Kelly Slater also starred as Jimmy Slade, but later got tired of the show interfering with his surfing and the far-fetched plots: “ I’d be like, ‘What!? There’s an octopus that’s stealing surfboards and hiding them in a secret cove and I’m going to fight him in the next show? Who writes this sh-t?’” Slater told GQ. He says that like it’s a bad thing!

A Baywatch Musical is set to hit the capital!

Okay, whilst not strictly a fact about the series, there is a BAYWATCH MUSICAL HEADING TO LONDON. *klaxon* Which we feel is worthy of its own mention. Hoping to debut this year, show producers Schwartz and Berk have promised that a water tank will be on stage. We’ve got our fingers crossed for some huge 80s and 90s-style tunes and a celeb star turn or two (don’t let us down, Pammie!)

Now we’ve reminded you why this show is worthy of some mega appreciation (but you knew that already, right?!), show the world you’re a fan in our wicked Baywatch T-Shirts!

Doctor Who fans rejoice! Following an achingly long 12 month break, Series 10 is due to kick off this weekend and expectations couldn’t be higher!  I’ll warn you now, there may be a couple of light spoilers ahead so tread carefully!

The wonderful Peter Capaldi will be returning as the Doctor (in what has been confirmed as his final series) and he will be joined by a brand new companion in the form of Bill Potts played by Pearl Mackie.  Also, very excitingly, Matt Lucas (who I’ll always remember from Shooting Stars and Little Britain!) will be returning as Nardole, a character who was last seen in the 2015 Christmas Special.
The first episode is called The Pilot and will show The Doctor meeting Bill while working as a lecturer in a University, he then of course whisks her away to his weird and wonderful world. Show writer Steven Moffat has promised that this episode is a great starting point for anyone who’s not seen the show yet, so there’s no excuse not to get involved!

It also wouldn’t be Doctor Who without a couple of scary moments to get us hiding behind the sofa courtesy of the huge range of villains that the series is well known for. It seems that new sidekick Bill is going to get chucked in at the deep end as the first episode is said to feature the greatest of all enemies, The Daleks!

Confirmed to be returning this series is The Master (played by John Simm) who has a long running history with the Doctor, some might say the ultimate version of a frenemy!  Also returning will be Missy (played by Michelle Gomez) who is the female equivalent of The Master, what will happen when these two meet?  Only one way to find out!

If all this talk has got you excited for some treats, we have got a great range of Doctor Who Clothing and Doctor Who Merchandise that any fan is sure to love.  With a range that includes T-Shirts, mugs, duvets and much more we’ve got all you need to help you snuggle up for series premiere this Saturday!
