Following the triumphant debut of Rebus McTaggart at Edinburgh last year, The List’s 2006 Best Breakthrough Act, Richard Thomson is back with more riotous escapades from the not-so-quick-witted crime-fighting phenomenon.

For 2007 McTaggart has a range of new vice-cracking methods to share with the border town’s citizens, including an autopsy technique that will make your eyes water and an interview method that would open the broadest criminal mind.

As the tale of McTaggart’s latest grisly case is re-counted, the plot is thickened by some of Eccefechan’s other residents and by Rebus’ killer instinct with the ladies. This is an outlandish, fast-paced treat that is not for the faint-hearted. Join us in Ecclefechan – there’s been a murder...

“Character comedian Richard Thomson gives several star turns in this inventive and cheeky one-man show. Never dropping a line or missing a trick, the incredibly quick-witted and adaptable Thomson deserves to become a big hit.” **** Metro

“As his assured presentation of these gleefully absurd situations approaches its zenith, it becomes increasingly apparent that Thomson is sure to soon break free of the beat and into the national psyche.” **** The List
