Storyline

Presents keep arriving at Denton Police station from Frost's new secret admirer, though their identity turns out to be ironic, rather than adoring. He is up for promotion but Mullet seems to be more enthusiastic on his behalf and he even walks out of an interview panel because duty calls - a very sad duty, in fact. Bobby Palmer has gone missing whilst at a football match with his father, and there seems no doubt that the corpse discovered in a shed is his. The body of a second, malnourished boy, is also found dumped but this at least allows Frost to save a third lad from a grasping family. The fact that Anton Caldwell, a known paedophile, has been released from another area, and is living unsupervised in a local hostel fills him with rage, causing him to berate the psychiatrist who can only point out to him the failings of the system. Caldwell is not only a seedy little man but an extremely provocative one who taunts the police, saying that he 'loves' children and that it is quite all... Written by don @ minifie-1

Hard-hitting edition
8 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The horrible world of paedophilia dominates Held in Trust, and a young boy goes missing....

D.S. Reid returns to help assist Jack on the case. More worryingly for Jack, he's up for promotion to Chief Inspector! However, when he gets a breakthrough, he makes a grave mistake....

Held in Trust certainly brings home the terrible reality of paedophiles and their horrendous crimes, and an even worse fact that their human rights are more of a priority than their victims...

We hear on the news shocking stories of murdered and abused children, and it's an extremely sad fact that we cannot stop these 'people' altogether. Held in Trust points these facts out poignantly and to the point.

A hard-hitting edition of A Touch of Frost which opens up a lot of serious questions.
