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>

a small gem
30 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

A funny, clever and wonderfully atmospheric show that deserved much more attention than it originally received. It had an interesting quality that was very reminiscent of some of the better "Hammer Studio" horror films of the sixties and seventies. The humor of this show had a similarity to that on "The Avengers". "She Wolf of London" also possessed wonderful dialogue filled with double entendres and spoken by a really excellent cast. The leads had great rapport and the supporting players were unusually good.

The change of name to "Love &Curses" and setting to LA was a huge mistake and the loss of the distinctly English atmosphere hurt the show. However, even those episodes are funny, well written and well acted.

Watch it if you can!
