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>

Fair borderline fantasy that outlasts its welcome
19 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a really odd spin off of "Dr. Who," featuring one of the Doctor's companions thirty years farther on, played by the same actress, but unrecognizable as the same character. Her partner is...another companion! oh, no, just the actress who played her. Gee, and here's the Doctor! no, just the actor, now playing a bad guy...or maybe he's the Doctor pretending to be a bad guy? So this story is set in a universe in which several of the inhabitants look like characters from the series, and once in a blue moon one of them actually is. It's not the universe of the series, because it includes sexual doings at a boys' school, at least between students, and probably (I took to be the implication) between students and masters; not "Dr. Who" territory at all. The story concerns a black-magic cult, but one without magical powers; this isn't really fantasy. A couple of fantastic elements peep in but are best ignored, since they rather contradict the whole. This seems to be a fan production, but professionally acted, and nearly professional technically (except for the sound). The actors are good, especially Liz Shaw and the Doctor-who-isn't-the-Doctor, and the story is intriguing, but the climax is overdrawn, and the whole thing leaves an impression of having been rather crummy. I'm not sure why.
