Yuill returns for Taggart 100th episode

AN actor who appeared in the very first episode of the Scottish TV crime drama, Taggart, is returning for the 100th episode, which is being screened on Thursday evening.

Jimmy Yuill guest stars as DCI Wilson in the landmark episode, called Fact and Fiction, which will air on STV and across the ITV network at 9pm.

Yuill – recently seen in EastEnders, The Bill and Holby City – first appeared in the 1983 pilot episode of Taggart, Killer.

In the 100th episode, his character joins forces with a reluctant DCI Burke, when a murder investigation leads the team to an unsolved case from the past. As the team digs deeper into the case to separate fact from fiction, tensions grow between Burke and Wilson and they clash over who’s really in charge.
