Russian brides for everyone!
20 December 2007 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Jack Holis is murdered in his home and suspicion falls on his young housekeeper, Caroline Page. When police visit her flat they discover cash and goods belonging to the victim.

However the investigation leads them to a Russian introduction service called Anastasia Agency. Jeffrey Mulligan, the owner is a colorful character who is not all that he appears.

Meanwhile Martin Fairbairn sets up home with Irina who has been introduced by Jeffrey Mulligan. The loving couple are soon pursued by an ex boyfriend with connections to the Russian mafia. Unfortunately events spiral out of hand and Martin finds himself the victim of blackmail for a murder he did not commit.

This episode is well acted. However, I saw the ending before it arrived. Special mention should be made to Richard Lintern, who is not mentioned in the IMDb credits who acted brilliantly as the fall guy.
