The Gravy Train Goes East is the 1991 sequel to 1990 British mini-series The Gravy Train written by Malcolm Bradbury. This series once again follows Hans-Joachim Dorfmann (Christoph Waltz), otherwise known as ‘Bloody Dorfmann’, as he is sent to the fictional country of Slaka to sort all the economical problems the country has so as to allow its entry into the European Union. However, back in Brussels and the United Kingdom, things are hardly smooth sailing. While in Slaka, Dorfmann finds himself caught up in political power games and illegal smuggling operations, completely against his will, of course. Meanwhile, both the president, Katya Princip (Francesca Annis), and a mysterious Slakan woman, Galina, (not to mention Mrs. Steadiman) take a shine to the well-meaning Hans, which naturally causes more problems.
