Frost was a chain smoker in the novels. In his 2013 autobiography "My Life" David Jason revealed they decided to make Frost a non-smoker in the television series as he had recently quit smoking cigarettes in real life.

When David Jason decided to branch out from comedy roles such as Granville in Open All Hours (1976), Del Boy in Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) and Pop Larkin in The Darling Buds of May (1991), the producers offered him his first major drama role in a police series, without having a character or setting in mind, and only later decided to dramatise R.D. Wingfield's books.

Between takes, the cast (particularly David Jason) and crew were forever playing pranks on John Lyons (DS George Toolan). They devised fake scripts which Lyons had to learn at short notice, involving ludicrous situations for Toolan: on one occasion, they made his character wear a neck brace; on another, they made him ferret around in a smelly rubbish bin looking for evidence. Each time, Lyons said "You won't catch me out like that again" but he always fell for the next prank.
