We’re back in Maryhill on this episode as we look at the classic Taggart episode ‘Nest of Vipers’. In this case, the discovery of two skulls at a building site causes DCI Jim Taggart to re-open a missing person enquiry from four years earlier. As an university professor begins to reconstruct the faces of the murder victims, a batch of poisonous snakes and spiders are stolen from a Glasgow biotech company, and are then used in a bizarre killing spree. Is the killer trying to cover up his crimes, and can Taggart, Jardine and Reid crack the case before more people die? Starring Mark McManus, James Macpherson, Blythe Duff and a very young Dougray Scott
In the news we meet a pensioner who is auditioning for Baywatch, hear about a spooky child pervert who invaded a hen party, have an update on ’90’s band The Fun Lovin’ Criminals and discover a Scottish pop star in a chip wrapper.
