Editorial Reviews

The longest running police detective drama on British television

Detective Chief Inspector Jim Taggart is a tough, sarcastic copper who has come up the hard way in the Maryhill Police Department. When he's out to solve a murder, he uses whatever means he must to catch the killer - and he never gives up the chase. Set in Scotland s largest city, Glasgow's often mean, gritty streets are witness to many gruesome and inflammatory crimes. With its grisly details and complex plots, you will witness why Taggart has become the longest running police detective drama on British television.

Knife-Edge - Body parts wrapped in tartan blankets put Taggart and Livingstone on a trail fraught with dead ends to catch a killer.

Death Call - A woman's body is found floating in the River Clyde and while all the evidence points to one young man, Taggart is not convinced he's guilty.

The Killing Philosophy - Taggart heads the hunt for the masked "Glasgow Bowman," a psychopath whose terrifying attacks seem to lack motive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taggart: Superb Scottish TV Mystery Series September 25, 2006
Format:DVD
The "Taggart" series opened, on broadcast television at least, on a montage of Glasgow street scenes. Meanwhile you heard a biting "This Town is so Mean," sung, in regard to Glasgow, of course, by the magnificent Glasgow-born blues singer Maggie Bell. But it seems like the DVD's of this series, finally released after a long wait, no longer have quite the same montage, and lack Maggie Bell; guess it was once again licensing difficulties, and it's regrettable, as she greatly helped set the mood.

At any rate, after the montage comes one of the very best, longest-running police procedural series ever made for television, a product of the Scottish Television Company. The scripts, by Glenn Chandler,are ingenious, complex, unpredictable, and demand full attention. They are slyly, seriously humorous. We worry about a baby's dying, of poisoned jam, no less. A not very likable man is found dead in a shipping container in which he'd chosen to hide. That very attractive Scots actor John Hannah, appearing on international TV, so far as I know, for the first time, played a charming, roguish egg cook in a country-western themed Glasgow eatery: he caught the eye of the female owner, and his omelet-making days were over. Casting was reliably top-drawer; mise-en-scene was excellent: Glasgow, high and low, was shown to great advantage. In fact, one of the great strengths of this series is the Glasgow flavoring, available in almost every scene.

And I had a mad crush on Mark Mc Manus, who played Jim Taggart. He brought a great deal to a part that must have been strongly-written on the page: added a Glasgow note all on his own, and an irascible charm, to boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best of Glasgow Detectives May 31, 2006
Format:DVD
Along with Rebus, and Wire in the Blood, these show the very best of Scotland and in particular Glasgow. While doing the series Mark Mcmanus died. Lt Jardin (his side kick you'll meet in the 3rs series and former WPC Jackie continued the series. I don't have any trouble understanding a Scottish accent although many do. It has to do with cadence (rhythm) of their speech. I adore this series and have waited since 1989 for either a video or dvd viewable here. I had taped them while living there but I forgot about the speed difference. It should make for interesting viewing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Scottish May 25, 2006
By it
Format:DVD
This is the story of a 60 year old crusty police detective in Scotland. The characters are very distinctive. Unfortunately, after 35 episodes the actor playing Taggart died and some episodes later the medical examiner was played by a less distinctive actor and the series was less entertaining with the remaining characters who were about 30 years old and not as eccentric.

The plots are extremely complex and convoluted. You have to have good people skills at remembering names and faces to figure it out because there is no summary at the end like Poirot gives. Engineering nerds like myself require several viewings to figure out the details.
