Retro Review: She-Wolf of London (1990-1991) Ep 2&4

Randi is an American student in the UK who is bitten on the moor by a werewolf, now she is one too. Thankfully her College teacher/love interest Ian is there to assist.
Ep 2

Bogman of Letchmoor Heath

A bogman turns up in a backyard. Randi (Kate Hodge) and Ian head off to investigate the bogman goings on in Badger's Drift or whatever it is called. The bogman kills people. Randi has 80's hair. Ian wears a bowtie and there are copious 'An American Werewolf in London' ripoffs.

The idiot yokels keep the bogman in the pub so it is free to lumber about killing people in gross ways. Ian and Randi share a room and undress provocatively in a ridiculous scene. He's her teacher, eewww. Ian and other menfolk insinuate that Randi is hysterical and needs to calm down and let a rational man set her priorities. Sadly in the big fight with the bogman Ian has to save the day as Randi gets hysterical. Oh come on. This was not good at all.

Best Lines:
"This creature from the slime is a harbinger of doom!"

"Dark forces are at work among us!"

"That was the most painful suicide I ever saw."

Ep 4

The Juggler

A group of witches have a topless murder magic ceremony raided by the cops. The minister orders the coven to be evicted as they are committing the dread crime of trespassing. Now it's Halloween and the coven are taking revenge on the minister's idiot spawn Lisa.

Naturally Randi (who is smug and dislikeable) and Ian (who never goes to work anymore) get mixed up in it. Randi rooms with Ian's parents who have a huge cellar which Randi uses during the full moon. Ian's parents never wonder about the noise or the mess. Is Julian Ian's much younger brother or what?

Lisa and her pudding bowl haircut who looks about 39 is tormented. She has visions of ghosts and cobwebs and ghosts covered in cobwebs. The cobwebs are obviously made of cotton wool. There is bad acting. Then the coven send the Juggler after Lisa who is useless and screams and acts like she has much sense as Flopsey.

The Juggler has a red cloak, bad teeth and is a sort of demonic clown. The clown chases people wearing bad 80's fashion. There is a cheesy ending. This is okay.
