A Mixed Bag Episode
7 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode followed on from the excellent 'Gingerbread' episode and perhaps after that, it was felt that some slightly lighter relief was needed. Unfortunately, standards slip just a little here. My favourite author was always Glenn Chandler and the three part episodes were always good.

The good points - There is a lot of mystery going on in this episode. You'll put the pieces together though at the beginning if you look closely you'll notice that one of the events in particular will have strong bearing on later events. However, its made too obvious which is the problem that the killings have something to do with this event. The killer, though, to the episode's credit, might be slightly more difficult to unmask and unfortunately, some of the suspects don't appear until late on. Uncommon for Taggart.

The bad points - Some of the suspects don't appear until late on and the taxi war is dragged out just far too much for my liking. It also drags in places and you know subsequent killings have something to do with the event at the beginning of the episode yet its made too clear this is the reason behind the killings. It could've been a bit more subtle.

This is, by far, not the best Taggart episode. However, it does have strong points but unfortunately, the bad points cannot be overseen. If the episode was slightly more elusive and didn't focus as much on the taxi cab war, it might've been stronger. The inclusion and lack of suspects in the story at various stages doesn't help, either. But its still not too bad.
