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>

Enjoyable and engaging enough to overlook a few flaws
18 January 1999 | by (Falkirk, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Packed with guest actors, _The Devil of Winterbourne_ is a welcome addition to the P.R.O.B.E. range of videos. Mark Gatiss's script is well-written with sufficient ideas and twists to keep the viewer interested throughout. Caroline John is competent in the central role, and clearly keen to develop her character; Louise Jameson, Terry Molloy, and Geoffrey Beevers all ably help the story along but Peter Davison stands head and shoulders above the rest as the headmaster with a dark secret.

The three principal schoolboys, although blatantly too old, come across fairly well, by the end of the story overcoming some dodgy performances early on: one of them in particular has an annoying habit of Clearly Enunciating In Extremis.

There are only a couple of flaws leading up to an intriguing ending to what is an enjoyable video.
