When a local activist is found murdered in her flat, the Taggart team suspect a local property developer of foul play. But when they question local residents, they discover that her protesting had incurred the wrath of many people. Meanwhile, DI Ross investigates the case of a hit-and-run accident involving a local couple's son, and gradually the team realises that there may be more similarities to the two tragedies than they initially suspected.

17 October 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

I was disappointed with this episode of Taggart. Perhaps the writers have run out of ideas. Or perhaps fans of this long running series are prepared to accept to occasional turkey. Regardless of their reasons the producers have dished up an episode where the bodies keep piling up and when the killer is found it turns out to be a revenge attack on a group of people who committed a crime against a loved one.

Here is how the formula worked this time.

1. An activist is found garroted in her own home. 2. Suspicion turns to a property developer, Charlie McEwan, who wants to tear down the building and put up luxury towers. 3. More people are found murdered with links to the property developer. 4. Meanwhile Ross is investigating a different hit and run accident and falling in love with the victim's sister. 5. Suddenly Burke discovers that the murdered victims have a link to the hit and run accident. 6. At the last moment it turns out that revenge is the motive.

This formula worked the first dozen times it was used. So here is a passionate plea. PLEASE GET YOURSELVES SOME NEW WRITERS!!! The reason I watch this show is because my family is from Scotland. I love the accents, the scenery and the characters. But its time it was given a huge overhaul.

Lorraine McGowan is terribly miscast as the property developer.
