Hazel Wallace returns from her training as the new Detective Sergeant. Supt. Mullett assigns her to sorting the mess left behind by DI Frost while he was on extended compassionate leave. Wallace's first case is a man found hanged in his home. She suspects the death was not suicide. A set of fingerprints at the scene belong to an unidentified man discovered drowned a year previously. Frost is summoned by Supt Mullett to sort things. He connects a painting that appears to have been stolen from the hanged man with an art robbery and murder several years earlier. Written by James D. Lankin

Great return to form
29 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

David Jason returns as ever grumpy D.I. Frost after a two year break, although the story carries on only a month or so after Love Me Tender from Series 5. Jack struggles to come to terms with the tragic conclusion from the previous episode, while we also see the return of Hazel Wallace (now a D.S.), whose on the case of an art collector found dead. However, the case is not as simple as Hazel thinks....

This episode is a direct conclusion to Dead Male One from Series 3, but is the Appendix Man's identity finally revealed?

David Jason himself now became one of the Executive Producers of the show, and this episode kicked off new title music. The closing credits too no longer featured the well-known 'Frost trademark' saxophone piece that had been used since the beginning, but the show, as a whole, continues to be strong and believable, with terrific performances from everyone concerned.
