Detective Inspector Jack Frost is an unconventional policeman with sympathy for the underdog and an instinct for moral justice. Sloppy, disorganized and disrespectful, he attracts trouble like a magnet.
Between March 1970 and December 1978, the three main actors (plus various supporting cast members) recreated their roles in a BBC Radio 4 adaptation of the series. For the first six series, TV scripts were cut down and adapted for the half-hour running time; from 1976 a further forty were specially written for the final three runs. As with the parent television series, the survival rate is very hit-and-miss. See more »
I don't think I will ever forget Janet's sweet voice as she answered the telephone, 'Arden Hoos". Not to mention the theme music. Great scripts and superb acting from the three main players.
I agree that for those of us with such fond memories of the original, the more recent remake was unwatchable. Much as I admire Ian Bannen, he could not compare with Andrew Cruikschank in the role of Dr. Cameron.
What is wrong with the BBC that, firstly, they didn't take care of the original tapes, and secondly, they don't allow us to see the rest by releasing them on DVD? Thank you, whoever suggested youtube--I'm on my way there now!
