Taggart and the case of the murdered Procurator Fiscal.
18 October 2006 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Sean Brady has turned Queen's evidence against crime boss McLintock. On the way to court his car is ambushed and a policeman is left seriously injured. Brady escapes and flees leaving the prosecutor with a hole in his case against McLintock. Taggart falls under suspicion because he authorized the route and Internal Affairs takes a hard line against him.

Twenty four hours later the Procurator Fiscal (similar to our Chief Prosecuter) is found murdered in his office. A guard is also murdered.

Detective Chief Superintendent Ellen Gordon takes control of the case and directs Taggart to find Brady. However, Taggart is not convinced the murder of the prosecutor is linked to the McLintock case and starts looking into background of the murdered guard. He is not surprised to discover he is using a false identity.

This is a reasonably good episode of Taggart and fans will not be disappointed. The original episode was screened in three parts. The chemistry between Taggart, Jardine and Jackie is priceless. Especially the interaction with Internal Affairs.
