taggart is the best

Taggart is a great show. first its scottish which makes it great i love watching it cos i can say i've been there. the actors are excellent mark macmanus was fantastic and made the show cool. i tohught it was perfect in 94 four when jardine and reid and taggart were togther it was great the humour was excellent. my fave character is played by blythe duff (whos an excellent singer i seen her on that country singer program and she was fab) shes a great actress. the shows aird this year showing the sad and dramtic deprature of reid long term friend jardine was deeply moving and i thoguht here acting in fire burn was great i was in tears. i also think that alex norton is great too the bit were hes eating ice cream i thought was funny. i also like that the character jackie is developing greatly with the addintion of brian holmes all though there was sparks between her and robbie ie john michie which i'd like to see develop.
