Dedicated to all things She-Wolf of London, an awesome genre show from the 90s.

 

Galaxy Quest Didn’t Do It First

Via IMDB, an old article from Lee Goldberg’s website regarding the similarity between Galaxy Quest and Beyond the Beyond:

Introducing Galaxy Quest’s lycanthropic predecessor, She Wolf of London… Original though Galaxy Quest might seem, there’s no such thing as a totally new idea, and even the Protector is treading where TV has gone before… In 1999. the last-British shot episode of the ill-fated Anglo-American joint venture She Wolf of London also involved a host of has- been actors reunited at convention for an ancient show which typecast them for life. Complete with a devastatingly vicious parody of Doctor Who conventions and garish clips from the TV show itself, Beyond the Beyond is a great appetizer for the big screen feast of Galaxy Quest.

(The following excerpt is from Carl Levinger’s interviews in She-wolf Chronicles)

The next toes stepped on were those of line producer David Roessel and director Brian Grant, which came about as a result of “Big Top She-Wolf.” Up until that point, Rabken and Goldberg were based in Los Angeles, from where they faxed their script re-writes and reactions to dailies. “‘Big Top’ was a nice little script written by Kate Boulier,” explained Rabken, “It was gentle and very romantic the way it was written, like a romance novel. The director Brian Grant was very close with [series’ star] Kate [Hodge; they were in fact romantically involved - CL] and the line producer [David Roessel], and they formed a creative unit and stopped listening to anybody else. They had a vision of this show—”

“‘9 1/2 Weeks’ meets ‘She-Wolf,’” joked Goldberg.

"We were sitting there watching dailies one day over lunch," continued Rabken, "and there’s a scene where the Ringmaster [Jason Carter] comes into Randi’s room, and in the script he says, ‘Come with me, and I will cure your curse.’ So we’re sitting here watching dailies, and he comes in the window, and he says something along the lines of, ‘Come with me, and I will cure you with my hot throbbing love.’"

“‘I will cure you so deeply and with such satisfaction that you’ll never walk straight again,’” added Goldberg.

"He grabs her, throws her on the bed, rips her shirt off—," continues Rabken.

"He reaches between her legs, and she starts to orgasm,-" interrupted Goldberg.

"For a long time, in the dailies."

"Well, wait a second. So Bill and I were like, ‘Did you write that? I didn’t write that.’ Sometimes Bill and I would write things separately; because of production situations, we don’t always work on a script together. So we watched the rest of the dailies. The scene’s supposed to take place at night; it’s a picnic. It’s supposed to be their first kiss. It’s a full moon, and she realizes that she doesn’t turn into a werewolf, and he says, ‘I am the reason you haven’t turned into a werewolf’ and gives her a kiss. In the show, he lifts her up, she wraps her legs around his waist, he slams her against the wall and starts fucking her. We’re staring at this, right?! The phone rings, and Universal is enraged. ‘What the hell do you think you’re doing? We didn’t see these pages?’ We said, ‘We didn’t do this, either. We’re as shocked as you are.’ Michael [Lansbury] said, ‘You’re getting on the plane to England tomorrow. This is out of control. We can’t air this.’"

Sharon Stone was the first choice to play the role of Randi. She chose to do the movie Alan Quartermaine and didn’t even come in to interview.

The school used as a stand-in for the university in the show was Clifton College in Bristol.

I want everyone to know that the first act I did as a nineteen-year-old was to watch an episode of She-Wolf of London entitled “Mystical Pizza”. It was exactly as wonderfully ridiculous as it sounds.

That’s a story for the grandchildren!
