Wanderers in the 4th Dimension: P.R.O.B.E: The Zero Imperative/P.R.O.B.E: The Devil of Winterborne

This week we continue our coverage of the Wilderness Years with the first two P.R.O.B.E films, The Zero Imperative and The Devil of Winterborne!

QotW: The acronym P.R.O.B.E. stands for "Preternatural Research Bureau", but leaves the letters "O" and "E" unused. Let's fix the acronym -- what should P.R.O.B.E. stand for, using all the letters? (You can change the "P", "R", and/or "B" if you like.)
