Storyline

College principal Simon Nimmo is crushed to death in a lift shaft by a lift whose mechanism had been tampered with. Suspicion falls on his wife and on his daughter's boyfriend Brian Meehan until Robbie discovers that Ross's deputy had experience of building maintenance and could have rigged the lift. Stuart, following the death of his adoptive mother, tracks down his birth mother via the adoption agency. The meeting is not a happy one, any more than his confrontation with the killer - by the lift. Written by don @ minifie-1

Stuart finds his mother.
9 November 2009 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

Simon Nimmo, a college principal, is found crushed to death in a lift well at work. When Burke and the team investigate it becomes obvious that the murder was committed by someone with a knowledge of mechanics.

At first D.C.I. Burke suspects the wife, Laura Nimmo. However the investigation soon uncovers an affair that the murder victim was having with his P.A. Eventually the team focus their efforts on the boyfriend of Nimmo's daughter and a shocking secret is revealed in the final scene.

Meanwhile D.C. Stuart Fraser is having his own personal crisis. After his adoptive parents passed away he has tracked down his birth mother. She is not overjoyed to be found. The final scene is quite touching as the two story lines merge.

Taggart continues to develop the characters of the main cast in regular sub plots. However, I do wonder how much longer the series can continue. There is talk that it will end in the new year.
