    • Title: Nesting Dolls

      An obvious allusion, given the discovery of two bodies, one on top of the other, and the eastern European connections in the storyline, to the famous Russian 'Matryoshka' doll, where the doll is opened up to reveal different sized matryoshki 'nesting' inside. Usually wooden, they are elaborately painted with all kinds of themes. They're also known as babushka dolls and stacking dolls, the latter being the original title of the show as pointed out by another contributor.
