Devil's Advocate is an episode of series 12 that first aired on 4 January 1996.


When a clever lawyer gains an acquittal for his client on an apparently straightfoward murder charge, the Taggart team are compelled to restart the investigation from scratch - and the killing starts again. Also a man is found dead in his car having been slashed to death in the neck with a sharp murder weapon, possibly a knife. Jardine, Reid and Fraser are assigned to investigate.
