Thinking Man's police drama

"David Jason is still fairly unknown here in the USA, and in fact is more popular in England for comic performances than his sober portrayal here as the redoubtable Frost. This is a far cry from most US police drama's and Jason plods through each episode with didactic deliberation, cleverly piecing clues together, and bringing criminals to justice. There is an unspoken charm to his character who is both likeable and frustrating, carrying scraps of paper as aide memoirs constantly as he solves each case. Something of an anachronism, he is an old fashiioed policeman, with what he sees as outdated morals, and practices - but his quirky style is moreoften than not, more than a match for his lawbreaking quarry. There's no eye popping action, explosions, guns or even over the top story's here, so adrenaline junkies please steer clear. Almost a latter day Sherlock Holmes, Frost is an intelligent, yet down to Earth, blue collar detective, resolved to getting the job done. This collection finds four middle of the road episodes that represent the series well, some may find that the structure of each one precludes repeated viewing, but you almost come to love the character, and this is a well rounded set for newcomers, and fans alike. Very well done. Enjoy!

"Frost is a British policeman who is brave,intelligent,emphatic with
crime victims.He is messy,doesn't like paperwork,and has a skimpy
social life.The stories are always realistic without being gory,and
are 100 minutes in length.This series has the 4 stories:Appropriate
Adults,Quarry,Dead Male One,and No Refuge.The acting,photography,
and music are excellent as usual. Frost develops but later ends
a relationship with Shirley Fisher because he can't commit himself.
In the process he considers selling the house he shared with his
now dead wife.I find these series to be among the best of British
mysteries and have preordered Series 4,due in November."
As excellent as ever

"David Jason is one of the finest actors that the UK has produced - and this, the third of the Frost DVDs - finds him as engaging as ever.Infusing his detective work with pathos and humour, Jason portrays a "grey" detective in an overly "grey" British town. Not the recipe for outstanding television, but Jason's excellence is matched by the scriptwriter - and the viewer is genuinely transported into the life of a British police inspector in a new town, with all of its troubles and problems.Jason not only proves to be a superb police man, his humour - and distaste for new policing methods - ensure that the viewer is able to relax, focus, switch on and off, all at the same time as the main character. I really can't recommend this DVD - or any of the other three issued to date - highly enough.Long live David Jason. With Del Boy in "Only Fools and Horses" and Frost in this series, he has portrayed two of Britain's greatest TV heroes: the range of the man's acting is simply breathtaking."
