Storyline

When a disused coal pit is excavated to re-open as a mining museum, two corpses are found, belonging to a young married couple who disappeared twenty-four years earlier, seemingly to escape rent arrears, though none of the neighbours are forthcoming and Jackie, who grew up in the area, is angry with them. More deaths occur before a secret stretching back to the days of the miners' strikes is exposed. Written by don @ minifie-1

Jackie buries some ghosts.
6 December 2009 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

When an old mine is excavated to make way for a museum two skeletons are uncovered near household furniture. The two victims are identified as Peter and Helen Buckley, a couple who disappeared 25 years previous at the hight of the miners strike.

The investigation causes DS Jackie Reid to revisit some painful from when she was a youth growing up in the village.

DCI Burke interviews the original investigating officer who dismissed the disappearance as no more than a family escaping bad debts. However, he does recall that the couple had a two week old baby. As the team continue to interview the neighbors they soon realize they are being stone walled by people with something to hide.

Eventually Ross uncovers information that Peter Buckley was labeled a "scab" when he returned to work and came to the attention of a union gang.

This is formula Taggart. It has the usual number of murders as a regular cast member faces his or her demons from the past. The 50 minute time limit does not work for me. I preferred the movie length episodes - but the times are a changing.
