Working with the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT) and their mysterious scientific advisor make her the ideal choice to head PROBE.

Ghosts of Winterborne

The Devil of Winterborne has only recently been exorcised by PROBE.

But when the body of its last victim disappears, and a book of black magic spells is stolen from a local museum, Liz Shaw begins to wonder if the ghosts of the past have really been laid to rest.

Forced into an unholy alliance with the school's disgraced headmaster, Liz must fight not only her own warring emotions, but a festering evil that threatens to corrupt the Earth again after 100 years.

But how do you fight a shadow from Hell?

As an added bonus we include the second part of Stranger Than Fiction, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of BBV drama videos. Part one is featured on another exciting PROBE title Unnatural Selection (RTP0155)

Curiously, the original video release was rated "18" by the BBFC, whereas this re-release is rated "12", with no indication whether material has been cut from the original. To complicate things further, the BBFC website only lists the original "18" certificate from 1997, so it's not clear when or how it was recertified as "12".
