Taggart and the waterfront murder.
9 March 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode is a change from the usual multiple murder storyline we have grown accustomed to with Taggart. The look and feel is also more American with less dialog and more action. We see people running, cars driving fast and the heroes racing to catch the killer before he can strike again.

A dock worker is called out to a meeting where he is knocked unconscious and later his body is found mangled in a piece of machinery. A payslip identifies the victim as Iain Wilson. Suspicion falls on Budge Kirwell, the brother of the Dee Kirwell, the victims girlfriend. He has motive and opportunity.

While interrogating the suspect police are notified that someone is trying to access the victims bank account through an A.T.M. The bank camera reveals the victim is not dead and he is trying to withdraw a considerable sum of money from his account.

Further investigations reveal the true victim is Michael Gray, an O.H.S. officer. Burke also discovers that the company owner, Thomas McCabe, is laundering money through a bookie. Gray has photographic evidence that he is receiving bribes from foreign importers.

This isn't a bad episode of Taggart. We enjoyed seeing outside shots of Glasgow. Unfortunately it became obvious several people noticed the camera as heads turned and fingers pointed. But in the end the bad guys were caught and the good guys prevailed.
