Editorial Reviews

"A Touch of Frost is one of the best crime dramas to come out of Britain…"—The Toronto Sun A Touch of Frost is one of Britain’s most successful detective series and stars award-winning actor David Jason as Detective Inspector Jack Frost, a policeman with a knack for attracting trouble. Set in the dreary town of Denton, Frost approaches each case with his characteristic dry wit and a sense of moral justice. A Touch of Frost Season 5 includes: "Penny for the Guy" – Two boys go missing and one of the youths is found murdered. When the owner of a large supermarket chain agrees to pay the kidnapped boy’s ransom, the police get involved and the plot fails. Time is running out for the kidnapped boy and Frost is frustrated by the lack of evidence needed to make an arrest. "House Calls" – A face from the past may be responsible for a series of assaults on children. But, for once, sentimentality dictates Frost’s actions. The result is a nightmare scenario that leaves Frost going to extraordinary lengths to vindicate himself, the investigation and his career. "True Confessions" – A man’s church confession provides insight into what may be a straightforward case of matrimonial murder. But, before Frost can arrest the killer, he is suspended due to the outcome of a related case from a decade ago. "No Other Love" – All families have secrets, but perhaps none so shocking as that which Frost unearths when he investigates the brutal murder of Peter Lawson. To make matters worse, Frost finds himself without a partner when DC Barnard is killed.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unpolished Morse April 4, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Frost is an English policeman in a mid sized city who is an unpolished Morse.He is not neat,dislikes authority (comic

elements in both),but is clever,brave,lucky,and empthetic with victims.For nearly every episode he has a new police partner and girl friend (the woman sidekick in House Calls is particularly interesting).The acting,photography,music,and character development of the principals is excellent as usual. Set 5 has the "usual" 4 episodes (Set 4 is exceptional-5 episodes and an interview).All story lines are "grabbers"-I watched the whole set over 1 weekend.I did find 2 of the 3 disks unviewable in my oldest DVD player,but they were fine in my newest one.Frost's character continues to develop-in this set,we see him under investigation and writing a letter of resignation. Does he resign? I think not-there are still 5 more sets to come.

If you've enjoyed the previous series then you will certainly enjoy this one. David Jayson's acting is very strong as of course are the other actors. The plot and story lines are all very well written out and the suspense build up is well embedded in each episode, especially 'penny for the guy'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Gem... August 14, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
David Janson gives his normal high proformances in this series of "A Touch of Frost". A very tough, sad last episode will put you into a quandary as to what is coming next season. Do not bypass any of the chapters leading up the this grand finally. Obviously there is more to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touch of Frost February 5, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've enjoyed all the Touch of Frost stories - what a warrior David Jason is to be still acting in this series at his age! Good for him. He might look more 'mature' than he did at the start of the series, but I think that's the only difference. Good on him!
Thanks. Gwen

5.0 out of 5 stars Same as Season 6 review September 13, 2009
Format:DVD
I thoroughly enjoyed all the Frost DVD's. Episodes are all well written and there is a nice balance of wit and humour in each episode. Thankfully there is not alot of CSI type mumbo jumbo and the villian is usually a nice little surprise. My only quibble is that it is not clear that each investigation is a team exercise so at times Frosts faithful sgt suddenly announces a leap forward in the plot because of some other officers queries. As I say a minor quibble, there is after all only so much time in an episode. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Police Show May 20, 2007
By Lympy
Format:DVD
If you like British made police shows you will like this series but if you like all the guns and car chases of the American kind, then you probably will not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series!
Wonderful British detective series with great stories and minimal gore. Most of our U.S. detective series show too much gore which isn't needed to get the story across.
