Mark McManus is Taggart
10 July 2005 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Imagine Kojak without Teli Savalas. That is what Taggart is without Mark McManus. However, this movie was made before McManus was taken from us and the series became deadly serious.

Diane Keen plays the scorned wife who shoots dead her unfaithful husband in the car park of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. The only trouble is the autopsy finds that he was already dead.

This plot has been used a number of times before and you will probably work it out long before the final credits. I did. However, Taggart isn't just about the storyline. There are the lingering shots of Glasgow, the rough humor and the obligatory 3 "deid" bodies that make up a Taggart movie. We are also treated to a beautiful shot of Loch Lomond and its surrounding hills.

Mark McManus was not a brilliant actor. But he was Taggart and that makes this movie worth watching.
