EPISODE INFO Title : Werewolf Airdate : 2009-12-06 Episode plot : We all know what to fear when the moon is full, but where did the werewolf legend come from? The villagers of 16th-century Bedburg in Germany had always feared the forest that encircled them. But then the young girls of the village started going missing. Footprints in the snow led to trails of blood. Superstitious minds wanted to believe this was the act of a wolf – or even worse, a demonic half-man, half-wolf. The villagers went looking for a beast in the woods, but the creature they were looking for was much closer to home. Part whodunnit, part inside-the-mind-of-a-monster, Werewolf dramatises the shocking story that provided the blueprint for cinema’s iconic werewolves.
