Its been a long time and one suspects the Taggart writers are scratching their collective heads to come up with original story lines. We've had Taggart and the gypsies, Taggart and the gay scene, Taggart and the health farm. In this episode Taggart investigates a talk back radio celebrity.
Robin Murray returns home to discover his wife has been brutally murdered. Jardine and the team follow the usual leads. The celebrity who has been dumped to make way for the rising star is a natural suspect. So too is a frequent caller who appears to be stalking the grieving husband.
Events take a nasty turn when Murray's panel operator is murdered after while trying to reveal that the evening's program was a repeat and Murray was not in the station.
Sandy McDade makes her third appearance on Taggart as a troubled client and it soon becomes obvious she has her own agenda. McDade is an extraordinary actor and it is obvious why her career continues to grow.
This is an ordinary episode. DS Jackie Reid's romance with DCS Brian Holmes continues causing a great deal of heart ache for DI Robbie Ross. Jardine continues to suffer from angina. And Dr. Stephen Andrews is still a gem.
