Bidding Adieu: A Video Diary
In January 1996 filming began on a new episode of Doctor Who, set in San Francisco but shot in Vancouver Canada.
Sylvester McCoy flew out to join the production team to re-create his role as the seventh Doctor and to hand over to Paul McGann. In this behind-the-scenes video diary Sylvester gives us a personal account of his final days as the famous Timelord.
Reminiscing about the ‘old days’ and drawing comparisons with the experience of working on this latest adventure, he talks to Paul McGann, Daphne Ashbrook (Dr Grace Holloway) from this new production and Anneke Wills (Polly) from the show’s past.

Doctor Anderson's patients have permanent brain injury or suffer from brain diseases for which there is no cure. When Thomas Mordley begins introducing tests of Cyberon on her patients, Dr Lauren Anderson thinks she already knows how the trial will end - there will be some benefits, but no significant improvement in their condition.
Doctor Anderson is wrong...
Cyberon is different. Mordley knows it's a wonder drug, and it's going to revolutionise medicine. He thinks it may even revolutionise the world. But does he realise that Cyberon has its own plan?
And if he does, could he do anything to stop it?

Starring Caroline John, Louise Jameson, Geoffrey Beevers, Mark Gatiss, Charles Kay, Patricia Merrick
In 1975, the British Government quietly closed down a secret evolutionary project codenamed BEAGLE, ordering the destruction of all research materials.
Today, the discovery of several horrifically mutated bodies alerts Liz Shaw and P.R.O.B.E. to the fact that something is stalking the original site of project BEAGLE - something which may challenge the very nature of humanity itself!
With a crack security team at her disposal, Liz desperately attempts to track down the perverted results of the project.
But who or what is hunting whom?
PROBE: When To Die
Starring Hazel Burrows as Dr Elizabeth Shaw
When Liz Shaw returns from a working holiday in Spain a new and deeply disturbing case awaits.
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.
