Storyline

Newly qualified doctor Scott Clarkson is found tortured and murdered in an empty warehouse. Two London detectives, Moretti and Casey, the latter an old friend of Burke, arrive in Glasgow whilst investigating a similar case, though Jackie and Robbie do not warm to them. Scott's girlfriend Lucy, another medic, is arrested for manufacturing recreational drugs and admits that Scott also made and sold Ecstasy to pay his student fees. Lucy is arrested and commits suicide in custody after a visit from the London policemen. Were Jackie and Robbie right to be suspicious of the visitors' motives? Written by don @ minifie-1

The case of the dead doctor.
4 June 2011 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

When Taggart first appeared in 1983 it quickly became one of my favorite shows because it was so unpredictable. No matter how hard I tried I could never pick the murderer.

How things have changed.

In BAD MEDICINE you know who the bad guys are the moment they appear. First of all they are English. This is a Scottish show after all. Secondly, they are policemen. This is a formula that has been used before. Finally, they are sneaky. Moretti and Casey turn up in all the wrong places and are even caught rifling through DCI Burke's files.

Taggart looks tired. The shorter format and faster pace have not worked to breath new life into the long running show. Burke's angry glare is now just annoying.

Perhaps it is time to put the old girl out to pasture.
