Trivia

This quintessentially Glaswegian TV series was devised and written by Edinburghian writer Glenn Chandler. Chandler originally wanted to set the show in Edinburgh but since STV's headquarters were in Glasgow, this would have been impractical and costly. See more »

Quotes

Det. Sgt. Jackie Reid: Michael Jardine died as he had lived - a brave and honest man. He was the best friend I ever had, and the worst boss.

Still called Taggart but is there an alternative
12 August 2005 | by Sulla-2See all my reviews

Yes, it's still called Taggart even though the man has been dead for more than 11 years. Jim Taggart was a grumpy old fashioned detective who got the job done but not until the mortuary was full !. His successors have fared no better. I loved the fact that his boss Detective Chief Superintendent McVitie was know as ' The Biscuit' Taggart was replaced by his protégé Michael Jardine who was nothing like a Detective I have ever seen. The present incumbent, Matt Burke is more in the Jim Taggart mode. For the past 15 years the female lead has been Blythe Duff. More recent additions have been DI Robbie Ross and DC Stuart Fraser. This makes one officer for each rank, more sheriffs than cowboys really. None the less, a great Police drama.
