Taggart meets Romeo and Juliet
7 July 2007 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

A teenage girl wanders through a fare ground at 2am in the fog. You just know she is going to get murdered. The only question is - how? The next day her strangled body is found under a pile of rubbish.

This episode of Taggart starts badly, improves slightly and finishes with the most awful, cliché ridden ending possible.

The investigation leads the team to the local carnival where DCI Matt Burke takes an aggressive stance against the "gypsies." Stuart Fraser reacts by trying to understand and relate to the itinerant workers to win their trust.

A Romeo and Juliet romance lies at the heart of the inquiry which causes further problems for the police.

Taggart has definitely run its course. This episode is a rehash of previous stories proving the writers have now exhausted their imaginations.
