THE UK S #1 RATED DETECTIVE SHOW — Award winning actor David Jason (Only Fools And Horses) returns as maverick detective Jack Frost in three intriguing new episodes of the successful crime drama series. In the first, a murd... more »erer is released from prison, and with grim new evidence - the body of the murdered woman killed 20 years before - Frost is forced to question everything that happened all those years ago. In the second, Frost is involved in a race against the clock to rescue kidnap victims, and solve a twisted revenge plot. In the third episode, a shallow grave is uncovered and three bodies are discovered. Could this be a ritual killing?
"An excellent set from an excellent series.Season 13 was the exception.Good value here,though shorter average run time. Plots and photography are excellent, and captioning is welcomed. "Frost" is getting older and if there are future episodes made,he might wish to have less physical exertion involved.Suspenseful story line (which is one of the joys of the series,along with food jokes,etc) could be maintained without it.When the series does end,an interview with "Frost" would make a nice addition to the final set."
Great series, but

"I have all of the inspector Frost series and have enjoyed immensely the gruffiness of the title character and the well played mysteries he undertakes to solve. There is quite an array of characters, all of them likeable in some way, even Supt. Mullett. But in this set the enthusiasm for the show seems to have waned a bit. Still good and worth owning but all of the key actors have aged and the writing is not quite up to par with the previous series. David Jason is still great and I would like to see more of Frost. But I think I read somewhere that he is retiring from the series, possibly this year. Without him the show would not be the same since he truly embodies the character created by R.D. Wingfield in his "A Touch of Frost" books. Again, a great series if you are a fan but if you are thinking of buying this as your first Frost DVD, go back and view the earlier series first. You will be able to see what an entertaining series this is."

"As usual David Jason is wonderful, and the one episode I was able to access was very enjoyable and kept me guessing up to the end. BUT for whatever reason Episode One is on Disc Two. I believe Episode Two and Three are on Disc 1, but every time I put it in my DVD player it tells is not compatible. I am now waiting for Amazon to replace this DVD set and hopefully I will get to finish watching this excellent cast in what I understand is their final series. What a loss."

"I previously owned seasons 1-12. I avoided season 13 as the reviews of it (even from fans of the series) thought it was distasteful. I did order 14. I found it lacked a lot of the drama and depth that the earliest seasons had, but it was nice to see the characters back again. We all get older, right?
As much as I love the series, and I always will, I think it's time to call it quits. To keep popping out episodes at some point, just seems like a desperate act just to "keep going" and it shows. If you are a fan of this great series as I am, then I would recommend getting Season 14 to add to your collection. However, if you aren't attached to the characters and haven't seen the show before, this is not a good place to start! "
Touch of Frost 14

"At almost the conclusion of this series (only one more season remaining) Season 14 just keeps on thrilling viewers with more of Jack Frost's experiences as Detective Inspector Frost and his cohorts at Denton police headquarters as they hunt down local villans, criminal suspects, and returning criminals reigning crime and terror on Denton residents. Stay tuned for the concluding season scheduled at the end of 2009 as Jack Frost finally retires. What then, will we all do?"
