Taggart and the case of the peeping tom murder
15 April 2006 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is a simple story but is handled quite well by the writers and producers of Taggart. A student has taken to spying on his french teacher with the help of his high powered telescope and computer operated camera. Each night he takes photos of a tryst until the jealous husband turns up and appears to be murdered.

Shades of Hitchcock! Blythe Duff shines in this episode as DC/Det. Sgt. Jackie Reid. Watch out for the scene where she catches the wrong train and has to report back to Taggart that she has lost the suspect. Taggart's reply is priceless! Much has been said about the excellent story lines and creative writing of this long run series. We tried to pick the murderer but were completely stumped until the end. The chemistry between the regular cast members is excellent and is another reason for the success of the show. Iain Anders who plays Supt. Jack McVitie (the biscuit!) comes into his own in this episode and his character has softened. It is obvious the producers saw him as the grandfather of the family.

Violent Delights is one of the better episodes and McManus is still Taggart. What more could you want?
