Storyline

Coming out of a meeting with employers Seaward Systems over job losses, union activists Cam Beattie and Will Ramsey are shot, in the latter's case fatally. A colleague claims Will was about to disclose 'something big' and the Seaward boss tells Burke that he was about to accept a deal with him. Beattie discharges himself from hospital and is attacked again. The workers' clubhouse is torched but union man Patrick Carr admits he only did it to dissuade them from accepting the deal and denies murder. Jackie, however,interviewing Beattie's wife and daughter, uncovers dark family secrets involving incest, pointing to a wholly different set of motives. Written by don @ minifie-1

Taggart verses the union.
14 June 2011 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

In this episode DCI Burke takes on a union leader caught up in a long running strike. DI Bobbie Ross turns up with a new convertible claiming he paid for it from the proceeds of horse raising. No doubt we will see his integrity brought into question in upcoming episodes. DCI Burke is asked to consider a promotion and his commitment to the job will become an issue also.

Unfortunately Burke's Mr Angry routine is now just tiresome.

Perhaps the most redeeming feature of Taggart is Glasgow itself. The camera frequently lingers on its historical buildings and street scape. Taggarts original concept was to make the city the central character. Perhaps this is why it has lasted for no long.
