Product Description

The A Touch of Frost – Series 11 And 12 DVD contains all three episodes--"Another Life", "Dancing in the Dark" and "A Near Death Experience"--from the eleventh and twelfth series of this cops and crime drama. David Jason stars in the lead role of Detective Inspector Jack Frost, and is joined by Bruce Alexander, who plays the incredibly officious Superintendent Norman Mullett. Each episode contains at least two plots related to violence and/or murder, however, according to Executive Producer David Jason, there is not a lot of graphic violence; Frost's pursuit of the ladies is also a fairly regular sub-plot in these series. The show is set in Denton and also stars Blake Ritson (as DC Robert Presley, aka Frost's sidekick), and John Lyons (DS Toolan, another colleague).

5.0 out of 5 stars Frost is cool 15 April 2010
Quality english drama at its best. Good characters, good plots and well acted. It is a delight working through the series and watching the development of the minor characters and the constant, Jack Frost, and his own way of getting the job done and living his life. Thoroughly enjoying each episode. I thoroughly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab box set - quality not so fab! 5 Jan 2011
I absolutely love Frost, so my purchase of series 1 to 5 was a bargain. However, the quality of the recording isn't the best, but if you love Frost you can see through that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Touch of Frost 17 Mar 2009
Although this was a Dutch produce DVD the lanuage was english once you press play. From start to finish the whole ordering and delivery was easy and very quick. The Frost series was very enjoyable and made good watching. It was good value as you cannot get Frost 1 - 5 series for under 100 anywhere else.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great Series, Substandard DVD 13 Jun 2010
Frost is my favorite among all the British mystery series I've purchased over the years. Unfortunately, these "Playback Studio" DVDs are an inferior product. Video is substandard when compared to other DVDs (including other Frost DVDs from both Region 1 & 2) and there are no subtitles. I purchased this set and returned it to Amazon UK as soon as I noticed these flaws.

Other Frost DVDs I own, produced by other studios including ITV, are of excellent quality. Unfortunately, Amazon UK appears to be offering Series 1 through 5 (as this 1-5 set or individually)only through these inferior "Playback Studio" products, so I've chosen to purchase the more expensive Region 1 DVDs.

Too bad Series 15 appears to be the final series and includes only one program. I'll miss Frost -- but I'll have all the original episodes in quality DVD format (not "Playback") to view again over the coming years. Meanwhile, I now know enough to stay away from "Playback Studio" products.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Touch of Frost 9 April 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this set along with another to complete the whole series - the best detective series ever, I think.
Amusing, sad, tense at times, but David Jason, as always, as Frost, is a brilliant actor.
DVDs in excellent condition and quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars jack's the lad 2 Feb 2011
By Owen
Very good compendium of eary Frost.Good solid entertainment. Just the thing for winter nights. I'm still waiting to see if Frost gets the girl.He might consider changing his bacon sarny diet for a start. Perhaps he might change the hat for a stetson. No question though,he gets the villains.Highly recommended. Go on ,you Frost fans you kow you deserve it!

5.0 out of 5 stars top draw detective series 18 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase
David Jason has always been 'Del Boy' to me, so I missed the first two series because I didn't think I would be able to take this seriously. Hands up, I have never been more wrong. In fact, this is probably one of the two greatest TV Detective Series ever made (Morse is the other). Yes, it is that good.

Frost is a hard working, good, decent and honest policeman, who occasionally has small problems with rules and procedure. He is also very human and has the frailties that go with it. He lives and works in the real world and Jo Average can easily identify with this. It is very difficult not to like Frost.

Although there are quite a few moments of humour, this is still very top quality drama, and very addictive. There are quite a few other regulars in the series. Bruce Alexander (his long suffering boss Supt Mullett), John Lyons (long time friend and colleague DS George Toolan) and Arthur White (police archivist Ernie Trigg)in particular.

Check out 'A TOUCH OF FROST: SERIES 6-12'.
