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.

Trivia

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 »

It started well...and evolved
7 October 2007 | by d-millhoffSee all my reviews

A short-lived program for a short-lived network, She-Wolf began as serious horror, set in London. As episodes progressed, the writers started sprinkling in a little humor. Midway through its run, it settled on a mixture of comedy and Gothic horror that would later see huge success in Joss Wheadon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

The formula didn't last long - budget cuts and network fiddling lead to retooling the show, now a comedy based in Los Angeles. It retained the supernatural themes, but not the serious horror. The final third of its run had a noticeable drop in production value, and while those episodes could at best be described as silly, they were also very, VERY funny.

A flawed program, but influential and entertaining.
