Taggart and the case of the murdered loan shark.

Author: bethwilliam from Port Stephens, Australia
12 April 2006

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 sharks.

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.
