Set in Glasgow, this long-running detective series stars Mark McManus as Jim Taggart, a cop who will stop at nothing to dispense justice and protect the innocent. Unflinching in depicting the dark side of Scotland, the show’s grim subject matter and sharp plots helped it evolve into one of Britain�s most popular dramas. This set presents another collection of episodes from the show: “Knife-Edge,” “Death Call,” and “The Killing Philosophy.”

The enormously popular detective series Taggart originally aired in Scotland, on that country’s STV network (a franchise of Britain’s ITV) during the early 1980s. The program follows the ongoing saga of Detective Chief Inspector Jim Taggart (Mark McManus), a mordant, acid-mouthed cop with a bulldoggish exterior, willing to use virtually any techniques at his disposal to solve crimes in the Glaswegian streets. Its combination of grisly violence and byzantine narratives made it an instant favorite of viewers and kept it on the air for decades – in fact, long after the 1994 death of McManus. This set contains both the first and second episodes of Series Two, Knife Edge and Death Call (both 1986) and the first episode of Series Three, The Killing Philosophy (1987). Knife finds Livingstone and Taggart trying to catch a deranged killer who wraps body parts in tartan blankets; Call finds Taggart doubting the guilt of a young man associated with a body floating in the River Clyde; and Philosophy has Taggart hunting down the Glasgow Bowman, a serial killer who apparently strikes at random, without motivation.
