Note:Second 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". The Doctor Who connection comes from the choice of Whovian actors, particularly Caroline John who is explicitly reprising her role as Liz Shaw from the Pertwee era of the show. Subsequently released on DVD.
