  • A murder takes place in the hotel where Strathclyde Police are having their annual dinner (ruins a lovely evening!) and opens up a very complex case....

    9.8
    An excellent installment and one of my favourite Taggarts - a nice lengthy episode and a good complex storyline with a number of threads worked through it. Good involvement of all the main characters. I especially liked the scenes between DCI Michael Jardine and his girlfriend who appears to be one of the chief suspects (and the dilemma this poses for him). It was also interesting to see how DS Jackie Reid reacts - torn between her friend Elaine and her boss and dear friend Michael... AND doing the right thing in relation to the investigation. Amusing to see "the boys", Stuart and Robbie, miffed at missing out on the dinner. And Dr Andrews is always worth seeing - there's always a witty comment from the pathologist.moreless
  • Supermarket style "buy one get one free", "2 for the price of 1".

    9.9
    This episode includes a cabret show performed to the charachters, all except the murderer and the deceased. I'm sure the corpse had more thing to worry about than missing the fantastic show, but they did miss a really funny piece of work.



    A rollercoaster of emotions from the side splitting laughter during the cabaret show, to the grim macabre reality of murder, this drama has it all.



    The acting as usual is spot on, and the plot has twists and turns that would through off the Bob Sleigh, Olympic Gold Medalists.



    Better than the american dramas, only down point is the hard accents as it is set in Glassgow, Scotland.moreless
