Werewolves were creatures that could shapeshift from humanoid form to that of a wolf, voluntarily or otherwise.

Their condition was usually called lycanthropy. (TV: Mindwarp)

Legend Edit

Werewolves were creatures that appeared human but tranformed into beasts in the light of a full moon. The bite of a werewolf would turn the victim into a werewolf. Like it happened to Queen Victoria when the Tenth Doctor met her.

Because they existed in myths, they were present in the Land of Fiction. The Cybermen converted them as woodsmen, but under the full moon they turned into monsters of plastic and flesh and fur. This showed the Cybermen the potential of converting other fictional creatures. (AUDIO: Legend of the Cybermen)

History Edit

The universe was home to several types of werewolf.

In 1903, after receiving a wealth of information from the future, Grigori Rasputin saw werewolves. (AUDIO: The Wanderer)

Werewolves were apparently prevalent in pre-World War II Germany, where Emmeline Neuberger remembered being forcibly recruited by the government along with other werewolves as a death squad before she escaped to England, although she later reflected that her memories could have been altered by Hester Stanton. Emmeline helped the Eighth Doctor and Harry Sullivan prevent Hester's plan to take over the world, and may have turned Harry into a werewolf, but Harry was subsequently taken away by the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith. The Eighth Doctor attempted to arrange help for Emmeline via his government contacts, but they held her prisoner to try and find a way to force the change until she was rescued by the Fourth Doctor (who would go back to rescue Harry in his future). During this time the Fourth Doctor learned how to force and reverse the change to trigger Emmeline's transformation and later turn her back, and it is possible that he was able to devise a permanent cure for Harry. (PROSE: Wolfsbane)
