Storyline

American graduate student Randi Wallace travels to Britain to study mythology with Professor Ian Matheson. She arrives expecting a stodgy old academic, but Ian is young, and the two are immediately attracted to one other. That complication quickly pales when Randi spends a night camping on the Moors and is bitten by a werewolf. For the rest of the series, Randi and Ian investigate supernatural phenomena together while they search for a cure for Randi's curse. Eventually, their search takes them from British academia to American television, when they move back to Randi's native California, and Ian becomes host of a trashy television talk show focusing on psychic phenomena. The series was an old-style romantic comedy with a touch of horror. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Trivia

According to Lee Goldberg in an article in Comics Scene#46, at one point, the producers planned on producing a companion series involving vampires for She-Wolf of London. That series would have featured Blade, the vampire hunter later played by Wesley Snipes, as a globetrotting vampire hunter. However, these plans got scuttled. See more »

Best T.V. series ever!
16 January 2007 | by (Houston, Texas) – See all my reviews

She-Wolf of London is without a doubt my favorite television series of all time. Everything about the show was wonderful: the writing, acting, horror, and humor. The chemistry between the lead characters (Ian and Randi) is wonderful, and is one of the series' greatest strengths. Unfortunately, the series was short-lived because it aired in the early days of syndicated television (with resulting limited viewing audience size) and because it was so ahead of its time in a way that audiences were not ready for (It is similar in many ways to the much later television series, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer.) There were also obviously creative differences between the creators and producers of the series (as is apparent by many of the scripts and story lines--inside jokes that are thinly veiled).

In spite of the changes in series location and format and supporting cast that occur, the twenty existing episodes of this series are excellent and perfect just as they are. So perhaps it is a good thing after all that the series didn't last very long (sometimes less is more). Reminds me of the Firefly television series, in that it was an excellent series that ended much too soon, and yet is outstanding and memorable anyway.

It is surprising that the series is not available commercially on DVDs. Maybe one day it will be. Until then, I'll have to be content watching my own archived DVD-R recordings of the show that I recorded from the Sci-Fi channel years ago when the series was last aired in re-runs. But some DVD extras sure would be mighty tasty!
