Taggart and the fertility clinic ... again!
31 October 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

I cannot begin to tell you how disappointed I am with this episode. It is a carbon copy of the 1994 episode, "Forbidden fruit." In that episode former detective Peter Livingstone discovers a doctor is doing much more than impregnating his clients at a fertility clinic.

In this episode Julie Pierce is thrown from a building on her way to the clinic. The investigation leads the team to a radical clergyman, Rev. George Stanford who is leading a protest against the destruction of unused embryos.

Nurse Kim Whitley is attacked on her way home and the investigation focuses on a disgruntled client who waited 8 years only to be rejected at the last minute.

Eventually the detectives find themselves walking a well worn track to the doctor who has fathered more than his fair share of kids. One happy sideline is the cheeky banter between Jacki and Ross when the two are forced to share a flat.

My only advice to the producers at Taggart. Stop treating us like idiots. It isn't funny.
