Taggart is British TV’s longest-running detective drama.

The series is famous for attracting the crème of British talent – and has seen some up-and-coming Scottish actors passing through on their way to greatness. The murders and forensic examinations call for gruesome and lifelike special effects. Dealing with detached limbs, gunshot wounds, strangulation victims and congealed blood are all in a day’s work for the skilled make-up team.
