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.

Second season?
25 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

There was a second season of this series, called "Love and Curses" where Randi and the professor moved to the states and he hosted a television should about mythology and the supernatural which they always ended up investigating or battling. No listing on here for that, someone who has the knowledge should add it. My husband I used to watch this show while we were in college and then again on the Sci Fi channel when they did their limited series collection show -- that was a great show! They should bring it back and show all those odd limited shows again. "She-Wolf of London" was campy but as someone who now has a PhD minor in folklore it was also interesting to see them play with legends, myths and folktales.
