There aren't many episodes in the later series of A Touch Of Frost. They continue to be popular with 10-12 million people watching them when they first aired. The whole series is out on DVD here in the US and I've been getting them from the library. I hadn't seen them before I heard Stephen Fry saying he thought it was a great series. He said this on another great series, Qi. ATOF Series 10-12 only has 6 episodes and they aired from 2003 to 2005. There were only 42 episodes in the 18 years the show ran. The stories are various lengths, that range from 73 minutes, ony 2 of them, to 101 minutes for 24 episodes. I found half of this batch on YouTube where there are a good lot more. Sadly not the whole series. David Jason is Jack Frost and he's a detective on the Denton police force. It's not a real town but neither are the people who live there, so there you go. It's all in your mind. Jack's got a pretty good mind, he can usually figure out what's going on, and he catches the crooks well good.
Hidden Truth January 19 2003
Frost gets some help from DS Terry Reid (Robert Glenister) in helping keep a witness safe from the hit man the murderer has hired. The hit-man finds the safe house and one of the team is killed. Is there a leak? It turns out to be even more complicated. Frost doesn't find his winning lottery ticket until it's too late. He's often a bit of a wanker.
Close Encounters March 3 2003
An autistic young man is the witness to a murder. He says it was an alien did it. Caroline Harker returns as DS Hazel Wallace to help Frost with a series of burglaries. She's one of my favorites of the detectives that come give Jack a hand. Some of Frost suspicion falls on a local takeaway delivery service.
Held in Trust September 14 2003
DS Terry Reid (Robert Glenister) returns to help Frost with the murder of some young boys. A known paedophile taunts the police. Some of the stories are much tougher than others but they don't shy away from killing, pretty much anyone of any age or sex. Luckily all the victims are fictional.
Another Life October 26 2003
Frost returns from a 7 month suspension. DS Maureen Lawson (Sally Dexter) joins him in investigating the dead man int he river. He has a shitload of cash on him and in interesting story. Another body turns up, chopped to pieces, in a fridge in a dump. He has two left feet, one's definitely not his, and that leads to some ballroom dancers.
Dancing in the Dark February 22 2004
DC Jasper Tranter (Nicholas Burns) puts in some Frost time as the two of them work a pair of murders. One is a dead guy and the other a dead escort woman.
Series 12 2005 Summer Special
Near Death Experience September 25 2005
DS Billy "Razor" Sharpe (Philip Jackson) comes to help Frost with a murder case. It's similar to one that occured in his town. Their suspect might be the priest covered in the dead woman's blood or her ex-boyfriend. Jack will sort it out. Frost's long time co-worker DS George Toolin has a nasty fall and nearly dies. It's probably Frost's fault but George just shouldn't have been up there.
Even though I don't really care for the more serious detective story I've still wanted to keep going on the series. I find the stories to be well written and the characters pretty well thought out. Frost continues to be an interesting enough character albeit somewhat annoying.
