This review is from: A Touch Of Frost - Series 6-15 [DVD] (DVD)
David Jason stars as the somewhat cantankerous Inspector Frost in this comprehensive DVD set which takes you right up to his retirement from Denton CID. Based on the books of R D Wingfield, this series had a very long run from 1992, until the last episode in 2005. Frost is an independently minded individual who is regularly at odds with his superior Inspector Mullet, affectionately known as Hornrimmed Harry. Frost is supremely confident in his own abilities and cannot be bothered with trivialities such as paperwork and in particular substantiating his expense claims, which causes constant friction with Mullet who is clearly something of a perfectionist.
However, despite his undoubted professionalism, Frost is really an old softie who has a lot of empathy for the people around him and the people he deals with in his work. The situations Frost has to deal with vary enormously as do the subordinates he has to tolerate, and he deals with everything thrown at him with a sense of irony and above all humour come what may.
This really is one of the best police series around, and this box set is an absolute treat. Very highly recommended!
