Taggart and the case of the murdered loan shark.
bethwilliam from Port Stephens, Australia

The Glasgow Garden Festival provides a dramatic setting for a series of
brutal murders. Taggart and his sidekick, Jardine are called in to
investigate when it appears that someone is knocking off Glasgow's loan
This is a well thought out and well written episode of Taggart.
Throughout the episode I kept thinking "what were the writers
thinking?" I imagine them sitting around comparing notes. We have had
murder at the opera," "murder on the Clyde," and "murder in a butchers
shop." Why not have a murder at the flower show? The end result is a
clever story that ties together a criminal family, the flower show and
a couple of rogue cops.
Fans of British TV will recognise a number of veteran actors who put in
a solid performance. Kenny Ireland's credits include Hamish McBeth,
Heartbeat and Monarch of the Glen. Celia Imrie's credits include
Bridgit Jones Diary, Star Wars and Calendar Girls. Leigh Biagi is given
a chance to play Alison Taggart. However, the producers must not have
been pleased as she does not reappear again.
This is a good episode of Taggart. McManus is Taggart and fans will
enjoy seeing him again.
