Taggart and the cab company war.
8 October 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is not one of the best episodes of vintage Taggart. However, fans of Mark McManus will not be disappointed.

The opening scene cuts between two stories. A taxi driver arrives at a fare only to be attacked by a mobile crane. The driver,who is the daughter of the owner, is injured and ends up in a coma. Meanwhile a reserve soldier is killed because of a prank that goes horribly wrong on the eve of being shipped out to Gulf War 1.

The story line moves forward two years as Jim Taggart and his team try to protect witnesses in a case against one of the tax companies. Unfortunately witnesses start turning of dead. The first to be murdered is the prosecuting barrister. The obvious suspect is the competing tax company owner.

In another story line Alisan Taggart, Jim's daughter, has moved in with her boyfriend and is partners in a wine bar. An Australian, Bill Hamilton played brilliantly by Peter O'Brien, enters her life and causes complications.

Unfortunately the storyline has been used too many times. I saw it coming long before the conclusion. However Taggart fans will not be disappointed. All the characters are there: The biscuit, the forensic pathologist, Jackie Reid and Jardine. Special mention should be made of Jean Taggart who shines in this episode.
