After his adventures in last week’s episode ‘The Dramatist', Jack Taylor returns to TV3 screens this Sunday with feature-length conclusion 'Jack Taylor: Priest', in which our eponymous hero investigates the mystery behind the decapitation of a member of the clergy.
The Galway-filmed series stars Iain Glen in the title role- currently prolific for his work on Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey - alongside Love/Hate’s Killian Scott, Nora Jane Noone, Aaron Monaghan, Emma Eliza Regan and Gavin Drea.
In this week’s finale, when detective Taylor is called to the scene of a priest’s grisly murder in a Galway church, the motivation behind it points to the abuse of two boys in the community many years ago. But as the search for the culprit continues, the outcome proves not to be as clear cut as one might expect.
To reveal any more plot details would be to venture into spoiler territory but TV3 fans eager for the next thrilling installment need not wait much longer.
Feature-length episodes that emulate a self-contained movie within their own right are currently very much in vogue, following a template laid down by BBC’s hugely successful ‘Sherlock’ starring Benedict Cumberbatch and ‘Hobbit’ star Martin Freeman.
Iain Glen will next return to our screens on Sky Atlantic from 1st April, as he reprises his role as Ser Jorah Mormont in the new season of Game of Thrones based on book 3 of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series entitled 'A Storm of Swords'. If the trailer is anything to go by, CGI dragons abound, as Glen helps his Khaleesi raise an army in pursuit of her claim to the Iron throne.
