| Enjoyable and engaging enough to overlook a few flaws
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.
