Product Description

THE UK S #1 RATED DETECTIVE SHOW

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?

Dead End
In the Public Interest

Review

...one of Britain s most successful and enduring detective series --Louisville Eccentric Observer

Detective Inspector Jack Frost is irresistible, particularly as essayed by the brilliantly funny (without trying) David Jason. --DVD Talk

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm happy Frost is back August 6, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An excellent set from an excellent series.Season 13 was the exception.Good
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, but August 10, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have all of the inspector Frost series and have enjoyed immensely the gruffiness of the title character and the well played mysteries he undertakes to solve. There is quite an array of characters, all of them likeable in some way, even Supt. Mullett. But in this set the enthusiasm for the show seems to have waned a bit. Still good and worth owning but all of the key actors have aged and the writing is not quite up to par with the previous series. David Jason is still great and I would like to see more of Frost. But I think I read somewhere that he is retiring from the series, possibly this year. Without him the show would not be the same since he truly embodies the character created by R.D. Wingfield in his "A Touch of Frost" books. Again, a great series if you are a fan but if you are thinking of buying this as your first Frost DVD, go back and view the earlier series first. You will be able to see what an entertaining series this is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still Enjoyable November 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I previously owned seasons 1-12. I avoided season 13 as the reviews of it (even from fans of the series) thought it was distasteful. I did order 14. I found it lacked a lot of the drama and depth that the earliest seasons had, but it was nice to see the characters back again. We all get older, right?

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars a touch of greatness October 30, 2009
Format:DVD
This series is in my opinion one of the best police detective tv series ever.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touch of Frost 14 November 11, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At almost the conclusion of this series (only one more season remaining) Season 14 just keeps on thrilling viewers with more of Jack Frost's experiences as Detective Inspector Frost and his cohorts at Denton police headquarters as they hunt down local villans, criminal suspects, and returning criminals reigning crime and terror on Denton residents. Stay tuned for the concluding season scheduled at the end of 2009 as Jack Frost finally retires. What then, will we all do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great after 14 seasons. October 27, 2009
By skylark
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Unlike the American mysteries that rely on special effects and violence, Frost, and, as a a matter of fact, all the British mysteries rely on character and plot, and are therefore far superior. Violence, spectacular effects,and cute quips are no match for good writing and superior acting. I guess it's the influence of Shakespeare coming down through the centuries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack Frost Is Still My Favorite Detective August 31, 2009
Format:DVD
There are a couple of reasons why Jack Frost, played by, David Jason, scores high with me. First, I am 61 and I enjoy seeing an older detective solving cases. Even though he may not be able to physically keep up with most everyone else, his brain is as sharp as ever, and he leaves everyone in the dust mentally. Secondly, when he came as Del-Boy (Only Fools And Horses) to American tv-dvd, he completely won my heart for all time and it is hard not to like him in just about anything.

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.

Frost is one of my all time favorite BBC tv shows. David Jason is one of the all time greats as an actor. We own the whole series and have watched it through several times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming to the end
British TV is different from the fare we watch from US programs. There is definitely a different quality to what they produce. The acting is great and the humor is very subtle.
