British programs are big in America, too. Some of us have a hard time with some of the dialects, but overall the shows are quite popular. The acting is a notch above the average American level, and so generally is the writing.
Taggart falls in this category, a superior show. No wonder it has been broadcast for so long. Amazing that it can survive the loss of some of its lead characters and still continue to be an engrossing program.
I have collected much of the series, thanks to discovering that I can order directly from Amazon.uk. They are sometimes delivered more quickly than when I order in the USA! I have a region-free DVD player (why aren't they all that way?!?), so this really opens up a whole new world of British programs I can order and watch. I am only missing the elusive "Classic Taggart 3 & 4" which is out of print. I would really like to add those six episodes some day.
Anyway, I would definitely recommend Taggart to anyone who hasn't yet watched it, it is worthy of its long history. The characters are very well portrayed, the writing is interesting and intelligent, and each program keeps you looking forward to the next.

I have to reiterate every other reviewer's remarks on the title of the DVD Box Set. It is not the complete collection as advertised. There's actually an awful lot missing, as of June 2011 there are 109 programmes & this box set contains 42 of them. The Box set sort of covers Series 1 to Series 18. But it should also it should be noted that the disks are not in strict chronological order either. To complete the box set proper you'll need the following;

Knife Edge - Series 2
Flesh & Blood - Series 5
Death Comes Softly - Series 6
Nest of Vipers - Series 7
Double Exposure - Series 7
The Hit Man - Series 8
Death without Dishonour - Series 9
Secrets - Series 10
Legends - Series 12
Angel Eyes - Series 12
Dead man's Chest - Series 13
A Few bad Men - Series 15
Long Time Dead - Series 15
Bloodlines - Series 16

Classic Taggart Vol 1 to 4 covers the above, but they are becoming progressively harder to obtain. Hence the full list of missing programmes.

So as you can see you're going to need a further 14 DVD's to complete the first 18 Series. Hardly as described a "Complete Collection" Having said all that it's still a great box set & pretty good value for the money. As each programme is an individual standalone crime drama on its own. However if you are a fan wanting to collect the complete set, it's a little bit of a let-down missing so many of the Classic episodes. Check out the fan club for details on the missing DVD's. as an earlier reviewer said you can buy the missing volumes.

So after all that what is Taggart? Taggart was originally based on Mark McManus who plays Detective Chief Inspector Jim Taggart. A gritty cop drama centred on solving gruesome "Murders" in Glasgow.

This is great television. I had to listen very carefully to understand the accent, as I am an American, but what an amazing series. I found though, that the series was far from Complete as advertised. I had to work to fill in the missing McManus episodes and have done so thankfully. It really is some of the best TV ever made.

The previous review by Mr Thompson gives the impression that all of the first 55 programmes and the pilot are in this collection. Unfortunatly this is not true. The collection contains 42 discs with one episode on each. Given that the last episode was no 88 this "complete" collection contains less than 50% of the total.
However, having said this, the collection still contains many hours of entertainment and although expensive to buy still represents good value for money.
This set spans the McManus and Jardine eras and the first few episodes of the Burke years and so contains most of the episodes when the series was at it's very best.
Many, but not all of the missing episodes from the first 56 are available individually but this would be an expensive way to build a complete set and Mr Thompson's suggestion to wait a while may be the best solution.

The name "Taggart - Complete Collection" seggests that EVERY episode up to the release date is in there how ever there is only the episode up to thge Friday Event which was on TV IN July 2002 which means that there is only 55 mepisodes out of the 82 seen on TV up to today. Having said this it is nicely packaged but at £134.99 it is still very pricey. For people not in a hurry to buy this i would wait till the series ends (as the most recent episodes have been very ffeeble) THEN wait for a Complete Collection.

Regards
