As Shaun Micallef presents what is still the news – we think – Fyodor the Cop’s long dead partner turns up alive and brainwashed by the KGB; a post-hypnotic order to kill planted deep in his brain. Fyodor is in a race against time to stop his old friend from becoming an assassin. And who is the target? Natasha his nymphomaniac wife, The President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev himself or visiting violinist, AndrΓ© Rieu? (Commissioned by SBS, in English) (Comedy Series) (Final) M CC WS


  1. I have a feeling this will be the highlight of the 2008 viewing year. Nicholas Bell, Shaun Micallef and Tony Martin from Bad Eggs together again in a NEWStopia epic. I couldn’t be smiling any bigger πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. YES! I knew the season finale was going to be an Inspektor Herring special, but I didn’t really care for it until I’d seen the awesome trailer at the end of last week’s episode. can’t wait!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Spastic TV at its finest! πŸ˜€
