Storyline

Noel Cash's battered corpse is found dumped by the motorway. His father Eddie, unaware of his son's fate, complains to the police that the lads from his boxing gym are being lured into cage fighting by shifty Don McGreevy, at whose fight club Robbie is a regular visitor and where Noel boxed to get himself out of debt. Texts on Noel's phone lead to pole dancer Anita, who also worked at the fight club and whose boy-friend, pimp Bomber Dunne, was jealous of her friendship with Noel. When Eddie is also murdered, Burke leans on McGreevy's right hand man, ex-boxer Alamo Higgins, to lead him to the killer. Written by don @ minifie-1

Taggart has a gambling problem.
8 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

This is a sub-standard episode of Taggart. However, Jackie and Robbie finally manage to light up the screen with a pash.

D.I. Robbie Ross is finally confronted with the truth of his addiction. While investigating the murder of a cage fighter the team discover Robbie has been betting on the results.

The one hour format has not allowed for the development of these personal story lines, which is a pity. Now that the series is drawing to a close we have some interesting developments. Jackie is due for a promotion. Burke is under pressure to move up and Ross's life is in chaos. What's the point?
