Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Award winning actor David Jason (Only Fools And Horses) returns as maverick detective Jack Frost in three intriguing new episodes of the successful crime drama series. In the first, a murderer is released from prison, and with grim new evidence - the body of the murdered woman killed 20 years before - Frost is forced to question everything that happened all those years ago. In the second, Frost is involved in a race against the clock to rescue kidnap victims, and solve a twisted revenge plot. In the third episode, a shallow grave is uncovered and three bodies are discovered. Could this be a ritual killing?
In the Public Interest
Detective Inspector Jack Frost is irresistible, particularly as essayed by the brilliantly funny (without trying) David Jason. --DVD Talk

value here,though shorter average run time. Plots and photography are excellent,
and captioning is welcomed. "Frost" is getting older and if there are future
episodes made,he might wish to have less physical exertion involved.Suspenseful
story line (which is one of the joys of the series,along with food jokes,etc)
could be maintained without it.When the series does end,an interview with "Frost"
would make a nice addition to the final set.
As much as I love the series, and I always will, I think it's time to call it quits. To keep popping out episodes at some point, just seems like a desperate act just to "keep going" and it shows. If you are a fan of this great series as I am, then I would recommend getting Season 14 to add to your collection. However, if you aren't attached to the characters and haven't seen the show before, this is not a good place to start!
And it was great to see them make a full series again. ITV made specials throughout the years which appeared as series in dvd releases. For instance they only made one two episode special this year. Which will appear as a series 15 dvd next year. This may anger people; but that was it this year. One of the greatest weaknesses of British tv has been it's inability to make more episodes of hit series which would have insured greater revenues. So all you get is three episodes here; but each one is movie length so that's really six episodes when they show it as a hour show. Anyways; since ITV is bankrupt due to this low show volume problem and having them bankroll so many different series with different sets and locations it's no wonder that this; one of the all time best may not be around next year. The three shows here are top notch; with Frost taking on a twenty year old case that involves child murder, a fleet street newspeddler and the murders connected to him and a kidnapping of a bus driver and his coworker. The stories are gritty and make sense and could come from real cases and that's why frost has always been at the top and should continue on.
There are three really solid mysteries here, which is a real improvement over the prior season. I'm looking forward to seeing this a second time as I really see so much more going on during a second viewing.
If you buy the audio versions of the novels from the UK, you can get David Jason reading them. You cannot get these from a USA seller. I've listened to the USA audio novels and they are pretty good. I've read the print novels and they are pretty good too but there weren't that many of them so they are way, way beyond those novels in this series. I've noticed that Frost and Mullet have developed a grudging respect for one another this far along in the tv series. Mullet has become more likable too. That is NOT in any of the novels. In fact, he is a bigger idiot in the novels than in the tv shows. However, the author died after too few Frost novels so there's no telling where he might have gone with Mullet had he lived to tell the tales himself.

we love the Touch of Frost series, bit of a British Columbo, perhaps a bit craggier. Good stories, good detective workPublished 12 months ago by R. Lynn DeJohn
