Storyline

Johnny Innes, son of local politician Malcolm, is shot dead after interrupting one of his father's council meetings. Mike Jardine clashes with Malcolm Innes and is taken off the case but pursues his own line of enquiry. Embittered Liam Kennedy is a qualified sniper and therefore becomes a major suspect, especially as he has a grudge against both Innes and Jardine, one of whom, at least, will find their days are numbered.

What A Sad Ending
16 December 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I always loved Taggart, no doubt. The storylines were gritty, interesting and what's more, very scary. Well, some were, some weren't. Nest Of Vipers was a classic Taggart. Nowadays, the stories have become lamer than before with a new production team and a bunch of not so hot faces to portray roles. I fear they may make this excellent programme too much like The Bill. That's what made Taggart unique... its difference from the rest of the crime shows. I'm sorry but the changes certainly have a lot to be spoken for and are very uninteresting and uninspiring. MacPherson should've stayed because at least with him and Jackie at the helm, the show had some meaning. Writing Robert Robertson and Lain Anders out of the show as they did was very poor. They should've at least mentioned them when they unfortunately passed away. I had no idea Robertson was dead until I read it on IMDB. The programme should've mentioned both their current situations. Nah, I'm going to give up on Tag if it doesn't get any better. The old stories had ummph! The new stories have hmmph!
