Jackie gets married.
28 March 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is the last time we see Dr. Stephen Andrews who has been with the show from the very beginning. I can't remember how he is written out. However, Robert Robertson, who plays the crusty but lovable character, died of a heart attack 17 days after the episode aired in Scotland.

Davie O'Connor is taking his first parachute jump with members from his local tango club. When the chute fails to open he plummets to a grizzly death. Jardine discovers the line was cut, but also that the victim had terminal cancer. Suspicion immediately falls on Marie Doherty, the fiancée who now stands to inherit a lot of money.

When Jim Redpath, the second member of the club is murdered Jardine discovers that two members are living under false names. Both have done time for armed robbery. Complicating things is Amanda MacKay's behaviour toward several members. It becomes obvious that her fiancée, Jack Cooper has reason to be a jealous man and is soon arrested when incriminating photos surface.

Meanwhile Jackie is having second thoughts about her forthcoming marriage to DCS Brian Holmes. The episode ends with the happy couple leaving the Regristry office. This is a bitter-sweet moment that marks a transition in the long running episode of Taggart. We see the start of a relationship between Jardine and WPC Heather McIntyre which will soon end in tragedy. We know that Jackie's marriage will be short lived. Finally, we know that the scene of Dr. Stephen Andrews' giving Jackie a fatherly kiss is the last time we will see him.

Over time these characters have become important to us. They are family. Perhaps that is more important than the often bizarre story lines we have been subjected to.
