[Season 1 !Season 2 ]
This is a Childrens BBC production with a supernatural theme - basically its Byker Grove with Werewolves, not unlike the teenage version of Being Human .
The show has all the cliches of the school setting - jocks, mean girls, etc. Strangely, Maddy gets to wear trousers as part of her school uniform, which is for the best considering how much running and climbing she has to do.
Maddy is under a lot of stress - her first transformation will be in a week's time. Rhydian tries to cover for her. But the nerdy girl gets a glimpse of Maddy's inhuman nature ...
The kids go on a school trip to the island of Lindisfarne. Rhydian wants to spend the night there. This is not a good idea! It is Maddy's first transformation, and without her parents around to help her ...
Maddy, embracing her Wolfblood nature, discovers she is a passionate disco-dancer. This leads her to hang out with the Mean Girl clique.
The ep title is a reference to a song that was famous before most of the cast were born! If anything, this is a refreshing break from the USA style of casting, where all the actors are ten years older than the characters they are pretending to be!
Maddy and Rhydian have to submit samples for a blood test. The token black kid's mother is the lady doctor. She discovers they are both members of the rare AB Negative blood group, and thus they are possibly related. Naturally, it never occurs to her that they might be werewolves!
The nerdy girl wants to track and photo the werewolf in the nearby woods.
Maddy and Rhydian discover a cache of stolen goods hidden in the woods. stupidly, Rhydian decides to start selling the stolen goods around the school!
The stolen goods are investigated by a Detective Inspector - a rank so high that they normally only bother with murder investigations and other serious crimes. The brand-name Sinclair is a very British name, compared to the American origins of real-life high-value branded goods.
The lads at school are having a game of association football (AKA soccer). Rhydian's cat-like (!) reflexes mean he is the best goalie in the school! Even the school's alpha male thinks he has talent.
There is a homeless woman camping rough in the woods, spying on the kids. She is a wolfblood too - and she tells Rhidian she is his long-lost mother.
Rhydian has to make a choice - try to fit in with the humans on the football team, or go wild in the woods.
The wolf-people have a superpower called Eolas. It allows them to use all their senses at a supernaturally high level. But using it can bring out their feral side, and they can end up like Rhian's mother.
The wolf-kids are hunted by a pro.
Rhydian's younger brother arrives. Rhydian must make a choice - stay with his foster-family, or return to the wild. Unfortunately, he has an overprotective mother.
