6. Erin Gray as Col. Wilma Deering in Buck Rogers In The 25th Century
Her military credentials may have been questionable but let's face it, who was questioning when she came clad in super clingy purple spandex one piece suit?? It may have been the 25th Century in the show, but in reality it was the 80s and we were suckers for hotties in just such attire (see also The Cannonball Run films)
7. Glynis Barber as Harriet Makepeace in Dempsey and Makepeace
Concentrating on this side of the pond, Glynis Barber certainly enlivened the otherwise formulaic and cliched pap that was Dempsey and Makepeace playing the upper crust smoking hot Detective Sgt Makepeace alongside brash Yank on secondment Dempsey, played by Michael Brandon. The pair did more than Makepeace off set, getting it on and still being married to this day.
The definitive adaptation of the legendary outlaw tale also saw the definitive and hottest depiction of Maid Marian thanks to English Rose Judi Trott
9. Veronica Hamel as Joyce Davenport in Hill Street Blues
Like Cybill Shepherd, Veronica had achieved some success as a model before acting. As lawyer Joyce Davenport, and 'secret' squeeze of The Hill's Lt Frank Furillo, she brought some much needed glamour and sophistication to the otherwise gritty tone of what still ranks as one of the finest TV shows ever.
10. Nicola Bryant as Peri Brown in Doctor Who
So, do you agree with my top 10? Or do you think I missed someone? Go ahead, tell me in the comments
