Taggart visits a clairvoyant.
19 January 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Martin Strange is conducting a clairvoyant service when he is interrupted by Lenny Kerr, an angry young man who accuses him of fraud. After the service Karen Lennox, an assistant, is electrocuted by what appears to be a lightening strike.

At first the investigating team dismiss the death as an unfortunate accident. However, a second death by electrocution against Ian Gilchrist turns up some unusual information.

When Ricky Strachan, who is Strange's business partner, is killed in an explosion all three are linked to a death that occurred 25 years previous while they all served in the navy. The race is now on to save the remaining ship mates.

Meanwhile Martin Strange appears to be playing mind games with Jardine by contacting Jim Taggart from the grave. Very spooky stuff! This episode has the usual twists and turns to keep the avid fan enthralled. In particular Alex Ferns does a brilliant job playing the angry young man out for revenge. It is easy to see why his career has taken off.
