"Forget Regret" is a The Professionals vid by PR Zed. It premiered at Vividcon in August, 2005. It is a slash vid with the pairing of Bodie/Doyle.

Vidder's Notes: " This was a vid that came to me almost instantly and was finished in record time. I heard the song for the first time on the way to work on a Monday morning--thank you CBC Radio—and immediately knew I wanted to vid it to Pros. That night I bought the song from iTunes. I had the vid started the following evening and finished it by the Saturday. I'm not sure to this day what inspired me so strongly—the singer's lush voice, the lyrics of longing and regret, desire and hope—but it suggested Bodie and Doyle's life and relationship so vividly to me that I couldn't not make the vid.

The most controversial part of the vid, the love 'em or hate 'em fades to black between each shot of the verses, are something I think is essential to the vid structure. Each line/shot is a vignette, one detailed aspect of an extremely complex character. I wanted each of those aspects to be viewed as if in a flash, and using the fades between the shots seemed the best way of achieving that affect in the viewer."
