A romantic episode.

Werewolf: Nothing Evil in These Woods starts as Eric (John J. York) wakes up naked on the bank of a lake in the middle of some woods, nearby he finds a beautiful young woman named Deidra (Amy Yasbeck) who gives him a blanket & a ride. Deidra takes Eric back home with her where she claims that she is a good natured White Witch committed to helping people, Eric is sceptical but Deidra changes his mind when she reveals that she knows he is a Werewolf & that with her magic she might be able to end his curse. However a local posse of superstitious townspeople want to send Deidra the Witch straight back to hell from where they think she came...

Episode seven from the first & only season of Werewolf this originally aired in the US during September 1987, directed by David Hemmings it's time for Werewolf to turn romantic & a bit slushy although in my opinion that makes for a rather unremarkable episode on the whole. Here in this episode Eric falls for Deidra the White Witch but unfortunate circumstances & stupid intolerant locals put paid to any potential cure for his Lycanthropy & any potential romance in an unusually sombre ending which it was nice to not see the production team take the easy Hollywood happy ending route & go for something a bit stronger although not everyone will like it. Nothing Evil in These Woods is about first impressions & how they can be wrong, stereotypical attitudes that could be wrong & you could make an argument for saying that there's even a thinly veiled attack on racism. The opening sequence has two hunters being killed by a Werewolf although it's never actually made clear whether it was Eric or not. Neither regular character's Skorzeny or bounty hunter Rogan appear in this episode & Nothing Evil in These Woods could be seen as a stand alone episode that you don't have to have seen the rest of the series to understand.

Nothing Evil in These Woods isn't the most action packed of episodes, in fact it's one of the slower ones & not that much really happens. Eric changes at the end of the episode as per usual & beats some redneck locals up but that's about it for dramatic incident. There aren't even any special effects in this one apart from the Werewolf suit at the end. The best sequence in this one is the opening where a Werewof attacks & rips open the hunter's tent.

Nothing Evil in These Woods is a reasonable episode, it's not bad but it's not great either. I found it rather routine, lacking a certain something & a bit forgettable compared to some of the other better themed episodes.
