THE WAGES OF SIN - DEAD MAN WALKING - A TASTE OF MONEY

To give you all a good idea of what went on during our day on the Taggart set we decided to each write down our own thoughts, feelings and observations.  I think you'll see when you read them that a fantastic day was had by all.  To read our summary's CLICK HERE.

Below are the photos from the day - each with a little explanation! NB: Some of the pictures are posted in a large format so please allow page time to download - you wont be disappointed!!

Unit Base 1. 6th September 2004 Location 1. Sarti's, Wellington Street, Glasgow.
Inside Sarti's.  Blythe talks to two ladies who were also extras for the day. Although this picture is a bit dark, it deserved to be included.  This was Blythe giving a speech in front of cafe staff, actors and crew about it being Taggart's 21st birthday.  She also thanked Robert, Valerie and myself and said that she is proud of Taggart and what it has achieved.  Hear Hear!
From left of picture: Valerie, Blythe, Robert and Jackie (me)
Action!! Unit Base 2.  West End, Glasgow.  Note the light blue lorry - must be the most important vehicle on set - that's where they cook the dinner!!
Location 2.  Private house, West End, Glasgow John in deep discussion.  Note that the action in the house was to take place at night - hence the blacked out windows.
The dinner queue!!  Note that John, Alex and Colin queue up just like everyone else. Colin in the queue for dinner!!
All this acting's hungry work you know!! Robert and Valerie had taken each of the cast a present plus a cake to celebrate the shows 21st Birthday.  This was John's second pressie of the day!!  Honestly it was like Christmas in the caravan!!
From left: Gerard Kelly, John, Alex and Colin.  Proudly showing off their birthday cake. Gerard Kelly was in the original Taggart pilot - 'Killer'.  Spookily he was back exactly 21 years later to play Graham Tully in Taggart Episode 71.
Happy, Smiley People!! From left: Colin, Alex, Robert, Valerie, Jackie and John.  Now I know it looks like I'm about to do something naughty to John....but I promise I was on my best behaviour....honest!!
Our thanks go to SMG, Linda Fraser and of course the Cast and Crew of Taggart for allowing us to visit.  We had the time of our lives.
