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

A joint American/English production, the first 14 episodes were produced entirely in England. When the English backers dropped out, the production moved to Los Angeles, all of the English supporting cast were dropped, Dr. Ian Matheson became an occult talk-show host, and the show was renamed "Love and Curses".

I concur with the theory that this was Britain's answer to the Hulk, but I love this series for the fact that it introduced me to the lovely Kate Hodge. Despite the over-acting and the hokey effects of the werewolf role, she did act out the plight of a woman cursed with lycanthropy. Even with the limited premises, the series had a great idea sending her out all over England turning up ghosts, zombies, witches and succubi in her search for a cure for her condition, but then they ruined it by transferring the show to the United States. Not to bad mouth my country, but moving the series took away any credibility and likeability the show ever had and made if even too campy for my tastes.
