Taggart does rock & roll.
25 November 2007 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Jardine and Reed investigate a killing in a country house swimming pool. One of the victims is Rick Mulvey, former lead guitar of the 60's pop group, the ADDERS. Their vocalist died while on tour 25 years ago.

Ian Garvey, Kate McCready's boyfriend is savagely beaten by two bouncers. The following day he is knocked down by Jacki Reed in her car.

Jardine and Fraser question Cready's manager, Alec Veerman. Meanwhile Reed learns the names of the two men who beat up Ian.

Marie McDonald, former keyboard, visits Alan Mann, former member of the ADDERS and confronts him with a document. Shortly afterward he is brutally murdered.

Fraser meets Louise Mulvey and at the funeral Patrick Liddell, the groups former sound engineer is spotted and flees the scene. With Reed, Jardine goes to South Lawn Farm to question Marie and her partner Larry Bain. Later Larry hands Marie some sound tapes.

Roddy Ferguson, a music publisher, tips off Fraser on a matter of bribery. Jenny Connolly's body is exhumed. Later Veerman passes tapes of her unpublished songs to Ferguson.

Marie travels to an island to impress Tony Balmoral, the last surviving member of the band, to sign her document. When he refuses he is murdered by an unseen assailant.

This 3 part Taggart is a return to form. Jardine and Reed have picked up the series after their boss's demise and the show goes on. Its Taggart without Taggart. But it is good!
