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.

Did You Know?


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 »

A TV show should went another season.
4 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

The first time I watch She-Wolf of London aka Love and Curses was back in 1991. It was aired on free TV before the Sci-fi channel existed. I enjoy watching the show for its unique plots and story lines. She-Wolf of London was ahead of its time and precursor for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Buffy I do not care for as much as this show. The show had intelligent plots involving around the two characters Randy and Ian played by Kate Hodge and Neil Dickson. The show died a miserable death when the locate changed half way through the season from London to Los Angeles. If the show stay in London, the show would had lasted another TV season. Moving to Los Angeles ruined the atmosphere of the show, and the characters were not the same when it first started.
