Jack Taylor Collection One on DVD in March

13 February 2013

Jack Taylor is an Irish ex-cop, on the wrong side of forty who has become a finder with a sharp tongue and a soft heart. He takes on the cases the police won’t touch, no matter how hopeless. He’s pig stubborn, he defends the lost and the broken, he looks where no one else looks, talks to the people no one else talks to. Moreover, he knows every back street in his hometown.

Based on the acclaimed crime novels by Ken Bruen, Jack Taylor is the hard-hitting thriller starring Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) as the ominous and fearless rundown cop. Jack Taylor will air on Channel 5 on 21st February 2013 for three weeks and Jack Taylor Collection One, including the first three stories; The Guards, The Pikemen and The Magdalen Martyrs will be released on DVD as a three-disc set on 11th March 2013 courtesy of Acorn Media at the RRP of £25.99.

The Guards
When the beautiful Anne Henderson comes into Jack´s local pub and asks him to find her missing daughter, he uncovers the seedy underbelly of Galway´s middle-class. When Jack´s surrogate father and barman dies under mysterious circumstances, everything he believes in begins to unravel, making Jack question even those closest to him.

The Pikemen
Jack is returning to his beloved Galway clean and sober after having been away for a year. It is not long before Jack is dragged back under when he uncovers a group of vigilantes calling themselves The Pikemen, after old Irish Freedom Fighters. Jack is pushed to the brink like never before.

The Magdalen Martyrs
Jack is hired by the daughter of a former inmate of the infamous Magdalen Laundries, a home for wayward girls, to find the identity of a former nun, known only as Lucifer. The seemingly simple case grows complicated when two young boys are murdered.
