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

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 »
When I first spotted this series i was 8 years old. The first episodes were scary and spooky ( i was not allowed to watch the series in the beginning) but in the end, the whole series turned into a comedy. Still it was a very good show. I remember scenes like Randi turning into a werewolf in the wc of an airplane or Ian turning into a zombie. The show was also very audacious (with gore, violence and sexuality) but just the right kind of way. All in all, very good series and i hope it's going to re-run here in Finland. I wished it would have lived longer... Definitely a cult-show.
And by the way, Kate Hodge was (and still is) soooo sweet. :)
