Frost finds himself investigating the murder of Damien Law who was killed in his flat. Law was essentially a gigolo and a paid male escort who spent a great deal of time with a great many women. At least one client became obsessed with him and he also may have set himself up in competition with the long-time owner of an escort agency. Frost also determines that the case may be related to a recent suicide. Frost is also investigating a theft at the local cricket club. This time around, he is assisted by DS Prentice, a somewhat dour Scot. Written by garykmcd

When a woman throws herself to her death and a man is later found viciously murdered in his apartment, could there be a connection? That's not the only problem for Jack Frost, when he's called to the case of break-ins and attacks at the local cricket club....Sport fans may notice a famous former football player in this episode!

Amusing moments abound when Jack has to work with Scottish sidekick, D.C. Prentice (brilliantly played by the late Russell Hunter), while Martin Jarvis and Jan Harvey equally make light of their roles as gigolos!

A possible relationship for the grumpy detective comes into the fray, when Jack begins to fall for the charming Rosalie Martin (played by Isla Blair, who actually appears in later episodes too). But is she hiding something?

Fun Times For Swingers is another satisfactory episode in the Frost franchise, and David Jason continues to portray his role in a suitably lavish manner. 7/10
