Storyline

When student Elaine Donohoe goes missing, Clare Vorland, a professed psychic, comes forward to help the police, though Burke is cynical. She claims to have had a vision involving a white van and indeed one is traced, belonging to another girl on Elaine's hockey team, whose brother has a dodgy past. Still not wholly convinced that Clare is genuine, Burke attends one of her meetings where he is shocked to find her disclosing facts from past that she could not logically know. This makes it all the more disturbing when she predicts where Elaine's corpse may be found. Written by don @ minifie-1

Taggart and the psychic.
12 December 2009 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

A young woman, Elaine Donohoe, is kidnapped after hockey practice. The distraught mother asks Clare Vorland, a psychic, to assist the police with their inquiries. DC Stuart Fraser follows a tip and discovers the van used to kidnap the girl. It belongs to the brother of a hockey player who has a dodgy past.

DCI Burke is openly hostile toward the psychic. However, she is able to lead the team to the body of the victim. Then is at a meeting she publicly discloses information about Burke's father that has never been revealed. When Vorland is shot and wounded in a murder attempt the investigation takes a dramatic turn.

Unfortunately I saw the answer long before it arrived. This is a better than average episode of Taggart. Although it felt like I had been there before.
