It's Dum-Dum

I love Mixed Doubles. A surprisingly sympathetic pair of villains, whose preparation for the Parsali Op parallels the Lads' own, on the opposite side. Production-wise the episode shows plenty of attention to detail in the camera work and lighting, which makes it a great episode for pimping the show. The script has a nice mix of seriousness and dark humour. And the "makes me smile" bits with Bodie and Doyle - the touching, the almost cuddling, the side-by-side all the way through – are perfect.

But what's this Dum-Dum business? What really makes a dum-dum bullet different from/worse than other bullets?
