Taggart repeats?
« on: September 26, 2011, 08:25:17 PM »
The first episode of Taggart shown in 7 TWO's "new" series of Taggart (Double Jeopardy) is so old it's even still got Taggart (Mark McManus) in it. McManus died in 1995. Double Jeopardy first screened in the UK 1988 (imdb.com). The next scheduled episode on 7 TWO, Flesh & Blood, first screened in 1989. Yes, they're separated by a year, because Double Jeopardy was episode 3 of season 4; Flesh & Blood is episode 1 of season 5.

These surely must have aired before in Australia; shouldn't they be marked as repeats?

Still, this is from the same network that was advertising Vicar of Dibley as though it was new (though admittedly without actually saying it was).

I see the IceTV EPG is now showing the "new" Taggarts as repeats. The cast information, though, which is correct for the more recent series of Taggart, is completely wrong for the older series (the whole team in the shows 7 TWO is showing is different from the team in the more recent series), though I'm not sure that it's worth correcting.

Thanks,
Peter

Taggart (7TWO, Sat 15 Oct 20:40, "Hostile Witness") is not flagged as a repeat, despite the episode having been made in 1990, and starring Mark McManus, who died in 1994.
