Fall Girl

Another tense and action packed hospital. This time Bodie on the run for his life.

It takes a while to warm up. Bodie meets an old flame Marikka Schuman, an East German film star who is visiting London with her husband who produces her movies.

Bodie makes contact with Marikka but he is being set up.

While Bodie is in a hotel room with Marikka. An East German delegate is assassinated with Bodie's fingerprints on the gun.

Cowley finds out that someone from British intelligence is working with friendly East German spies. Bodie is the fall guy but Cowley is having none of it. Doyle has to help get Bodie out from a tight spot.

It was nice to see Cowley being supportive of his agents in this episode, as he was far from supportive in the previous one. I could not get over the silly grin Doyle kept displaying in the early part of the story.

There was some good location shooting such as the gardens in Holland Park.
