Taggart. In the episode Black Orchid, Michael Jardine is promoted from Detective Sergeant to Detective Inspector following the death of the main Jim Taggart. In the episode A Few Bad Men, the character of Robbie Ross is introduced as a Detective Inspector when Jardine is elevated to Detective Chief Inspector. More recently in the episode, The Ends of Justice, DS Jackie Reid is promoted to DI after Robbie is suspended. It is very much more than likely that Jim Taggart himself and later, Matthew Burke will have occupied the same roles. Detective Constable Stuart Fraser is one of the only characters in the show who has not yet been promoted.
