Friday Flashback: Inspektor Herring
A look back to Micallef's Perestroika parody which screened on Newstopia.
This week’s flashback is to Micallef’s Inspektor Herring, a Perestroika-parody inspired by Euro-crime Inspector Rex, complete with a confected Stroganoff language and subtitles.

Herring included cast members Kat Stewart, Francis Greenslade, Nicholas Bell, Tony Martin, Stephen Hall. I could only find this low-grade copy online….
