Storyline

The Preternatural Research Bureau are called in to investigate when a retired headmaster and his pet dog are found slain. Liz Shaw (Caroline John) is disturbed to find signs of a satanic ritual near to the crime scene. Liz's investigation leads her to the nearby Winterborne School where it appears someone is intent on covering up an ancient secret - at any cost. When another animal is slaughtered, the current headmaster Gavin Purcell (Peter Davison)is accused of murdering a pupil and one of the school's oldest members of staff is stabbed with a knife Liz comes under increasing pressure to solve the case. However, P.R.O.B.E. is facing another challenge as it is threatened with closure and Liz finds herself in conflict with her superiors and even her strongest Whitehall ally Patricia Haggard (Louise Jameson). Things get even more complicated when Purcell reveals that the legendary Devil of Winterborne is at large and that only Liz can stop it. Written by Mark_a_Wood <markawood@hotmail.co.uk>

Fantastic horror suspense on a shoestring budget.
10 March 2002 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I saw this film very late at night on the Sci-Fi channel and was hooked. I saw it was made on video and expected it to be some amateur rubbish, but then noticed the fantastic actors and remembered them from Doctor Who. Caroline John gets to do more with Liz Shaw than she was ever allowed on Doctor Who, Louise Jameson is lovely as always, and Peter Davison gives a fantastic performance as the haunted choolmaster (I had goosebumps all over). I challenge anyone who doubts this man's (or any of the other performers') acting talents to go and see this flick. Also, it was strong enough to rekindle my interest in Doctor Who--and I still love it, years after seeing it.

Mark Gatiss' screenplay is very good, I'd love to see him get the chance to write more stuff like this. League of Gentlemen fans might also check this one out to see the strengths of his acting (and Reece Shearsmith is very good in this one too).
