Touch of Frost-Season 2 (1993)
|A Touch of Frost is one of Britain's most successful detective series. The drama stars award-winning actor David Jason as Detective Inspector Jack Frost, an unconventional policeman with a knack for attracting trouble. It has consistently placed in the top 10 on UK TV since the series debuted in 1992.|
Set in the dreary town of Denton near Bristol in southern England, Frost prefers solving crime to the monotony of police paperwork. Sloppy, disorganized and cantankerous, he often clashes with his commander, Superintendent Norman "Horn-rimmed Harry" Mullett. A champion for the common man, Frost approaches each case with his characteristic dry wit and a sense of moral justice.
A Touch of Frost Season 2 includes:
"A Minority of One" - Frost and a black detective constable investigate residents at the Eastdean Estate housing project, where young, black men have been accused of a string of commercial burglaries. Frost feels responsible when an informant is murdered. The informant's child is kidnapped and Frost embarks on a one-man rescue mission.
"Widows and Orphans" - Frost is reluctant to investigate a rash of break-ins at the homes of elderly citizens due to lack of evidence until an elderly woman is found badly beaten. A new female partner dispenses free advice on Jack's love life and he asks Shirley Fisher to dinner.
"Nothing to Hide" - Frost gets a new partner whose attitude problem stems from a recent demotion. Is a drug addict's death accidental - or is it murder? Frost deals with personal issues involving an old flame.
"Stranger in the House" - A serial rapist is on the loose in Denton. A teenaged girl is missing and Frost fears she may be the next victim. The investigation becomes jeopardized when Frost finds a possible connection with the victim's father. Under pressure to remove himself from the case, he uses WPC Hazel Wallace to bait the rapist, placing her in grave danger.
