Note: A new 5th entry in the in the P.R.O.B.E. series of spinoff video dramas, about the activities of a Torchwood-esque agency called the "Preternatural Research Bureau", one of whom is Liz Shaw (onetime companion of the Third Doctor). Since Caroline John unfortunately passed away in 2012, in this new drama the character of Liz has been recast.
Corporal 7891Alpha has outlived his usefulness or rather the government can no longer afford to fund the medication. And that can mean only one thing... termination!
At first glance a 'government authorised execution' is a simple enough task for the Preternatural Research Bureau (PROBE) team. But as events unfold, and the truth about Corporal 7891Alpha is revealed, the case becomes far more complex.
Only Liz's wealth of experience, courage and determination can save the day — but not before her her moral compass is knocked off course.
Introducing Hazel Burrows as LIZ SHAW and Georgette Ellison as HAGGARD.
WHEN TO DIE has been produced in memory of Caroline John. Caroline first played LIZ SHAW for Jon Pertwee's incarnation of the BBC TV series Doctor Who.
