Taggart joins a pyramid scheme.
24 October 2008 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

At last, a brilliant episode of Taggart.

The show opens with a huge (and I mean HUGE!) man jogging through a park. He stumbles on the mutilated body of Tracy Brogan, the CEO of Pinnacle Enterprise.

Initial investigations lead to the estranged husband who does not have an alibi for the night. Frank Harris is also in the frame when he discloses that his mother has been cheated out of her home by Pinnacle Enterprise.

Unfortunately for Jackie, Terry Brogan starts to play on her feelings for her dead husband when he claims to have terminal cancer. In the end a "Rent Boy" provides an alibi for the night in question. But he is not all that he appears to be.

I did not see the answer until the very end. This episode has it all. Blythe Duff puts in an excellent performance. John Mitchie is convincing as Robbie Ross. Glasgow looks good. The story line is convincing and the overall acting is brilliant.

Hopefully Taggart has turned the corner on its recent decline.
