Taggart is one of the best remembered detective series in television history thanks to a superb mix of brilliant writing, direction and performances from its entire cast. Each episode took months to research and write: this was not formula television. Over the years the story lines became more sophisticated to involve a whole range of influences from the IRA to the Gulf War, Roman burial sites to ex-hit men. Almost 30 years after it first appeared on our screens the popularity of Taggart shows no signs of diminishing and it has rightly achieved classic status in British television history. This unforgettable collection includes seven vintage episode starring Mark McManus, the actor who remains synonymous with DCI Jim Taggart. Packed with intriguing plot lines, plenty of twists and turns as well as the obligatory mysterious murder, each programme is over two hours long and keeps you guessing right to the end.
