The case of the murdered gypsy
5 April 2006 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

If you watch Taggart long enough you begin to see a theme to the writing. In the past we have had "Taggart and the serial killers," "Taggart and the voodoo magic," & "Taggart and the mad motorcycle gang." I can imagine the writers sitting around and thinking "Why don't we try a storyline with a gypsy curse?" The story begins with a gang of diamond thieves holding up a jeweler in London. The heist goes terribly wrong when a policeman is murdered and the villains head for Scotland. Along the way they crash near a gypsy caravan and murder the family matriarch.

Taggart has been credited with getting a number of young actors under way. John Hannah is introduced in the episode and puts in a credible performance. He is best remembered for "4 weddings and a funeral." Taggart spends much of this episode beside his wife who is in hospital in a coma. Watch the amusing tirade that brings her out of it.
