A Touch of Frost
Season 1DVD - 2004
A brash English policeman follows his moral compass, shows compassion for the common man, and always solves the case. Care and protection: Det Insp William Edward, "Jack", Frost alternates his police duties in Denton, a town in southern England near Bristol, with nursing his terminally-ill wife, Mary, leaving her in the care of nurse Shirley Fisher during the day. He is assigned a new Detective Constable, Clive Barnard, to assist him in the investigation of a missing young child. Not with kindness: Frost's sister-in-law, Marion, has come over from the U.S. for his wife's funeral, but her staying at his house leads to friction. Frost is assigned another assistant, Det Sgt Gilmore. As DCI Allen is still on medical leave, Denton's incoming cases fall to Frost. These are a missing teenage girl, Paula Bartlett, and the case of a woman who has been receiving threatening phone calls and suffering malicious pranks. Conclusions: A hit and run driver kills an elderly man, after deliberately drawing attention by wild driving on a residential estate. On the same evening the local private casino, the Sherwood Club, is violently robbed of its night's takings. It is immediately apparent that the car belongs to the local MP's son, Roger Massie, whom Frost has charged with motoring offences on more than one occasion, but whose excellent legal team have got him cleared. Frost gets a humorless new partner, DC Webster, to assist him in the investigations.
