Truly entertaining and gritty- well worth watching., 19 May 2009
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

The most obvious plus, is the perfect performance of David Jason, who brings a sense of grit and humour to his role. Frost is definitely the most memorable of all the post-Morse detectives. His scenes with Superintendent Mullet are truly hilarious. Another plus is the quality of the script, funny, gritty and tense, a little reminiscent of the Sweeney. The episodes are interesting and sometimes touching. One standout scene, was when Frost is seen in tears as he says goodbye to a murdered colleague in the morgue. That was truly sad, and anyone who's seen the last Morse episode will probably find some similarities between the two scenes. My only criticism is that one or two of the later episodes lack the ingenuity of the early episodes. A good example is the episode with the crocodile, it just seemed more serious, and had a disappointing ending. (the murderer I seem to recall was given away halfway through) All in all, a truly entertaining gem. 9/10 Bethany Cox
