Taggart and the murdered lawyer.
27 April 2006 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

A workman has died at a building site owned by boss, Joe Malcolmson. A strike is narrowly averted through the auspices of union full timer, Bryan Beattie. Lawyer Eric Barr has returned from a walking holiday and announces to his partner, Phillip McLean, that he has found a way to solve their financial problems. McLean thanks him and makes his way to the Southside Community Centre where he works as a volunteer giving legal advice.

Meanwhile the tenement flats of Danny Lal and Lisanne Archer are subjected to racist graffiti attacks and then fire bombs. Demanding retribution Danny Lal goes to the Community Centre and argues with McLean who has actively campaigned against racism. That afternoon, while Eric Barr enjoys a soccer match, McLean is found dead in his car. A hose is connected to his exhaust pipe. As a result of McLean's death press photographer Diane Johnstone renews her friendship with Eric Barr.

Initially McLean's death looks like suicide. However, when Dr. Andrews performs an autopsy it is obvious the lawyer was murdered. Suspician immediately falls on the dead man's wife, Margaret, and his lover Sharon Lal. Both claim to be shocked by his death, but Taggart is not convinced. However, when a witness states that she saw McLean arguing with a young Asian man shortly before his death the hunt widens to find him.

Meanwhile the attacks continue at the tenement building.

This is Taggart at its best. Sandy McDade who plays Lisanne Archer puts in a brilliant performance. Mark McManus is Taggart and I found myself starting to like his gruff character.
