This is the second episode of the second season of Taggart and was
originally shown on February 9th, 1986.
Taggart and Peter Livingstone are called in to investigate when a
woman's body is found weighted down with her own luggage at the bottom
of a loch. She was last seen with her husband and a suitcase full of
cash preparing for a flight to Switzerland.
This is not a brilliant episode of Taggart, particularly after the
previous episode "Knife edge," which was outstanding. The writers often
took 6 months to research and write the script often basing the story
on real life events. So the disappointing end came as a surprise.
Taggart is credited for kick starting the careers of a number of big
name actors. In this episode Alan Cumming is given a chance to show his
potential. He later moved to Hollywood and appeared in Saturday Night
Live and X men 2.
At the end of the day Mark McManus is Taggart and that is a good enough
reason to watch this show.
