Trivia

This episode was the beginning of a virtual 'job-for-life' for Blythe Duff, who first appeared here as Jackie Reid, a role she kept for the rest of the series. The 'Taggart' figure may change but WPC/DC/DS Reid keeps con going after more than 25 years, longer than most TV series last. See more »

"Oh Gawd, policewomen!"
5 April 2006 | by (Port Stephens, Australia) – See all my reviews

When an elderly man is found murdered in his home Taggart and Jardine suspect the daughter and her husband. Then another elderly person is murdered and the detectives struggle to find a connection. Eventually a Post Office worker who also moonlights in a retirement home comes to their attention.

This episode introduces Blythe Duff as policewomen Reid who is still with the series today.

The reason I like Taggart is because the story lines are always original and you never see the solution till the very end. The characters are also likable and in this case Reid and Jardine take on a brother/sister role which is refreshing.

Watch out for Jardine and Reid singing in the same church choir.

Perhaps the only unpleasant aspect to Taggart is I am now beginning to wonder if Glasgow is not the most crime ridden city on the planet. By episode 16 the body count has reached 50. That must be some kind of a record.
