House Calls 

A face from the past may be responsible for a series of assaults on children. But, for once, sentimentality dictates Frost's actions.

Jack is in charge of the case of a three month old corpse found in the coal bin of an abandoned farm house. The body is eventually identified as that of a well known thief, but Jack has little to go on. DS Liz Maud has a case of a child abuser who is injecting children with water. Jack recalls a similar case and when they learn he is now in the area, have an immediate suspect. Jack feels sorry for him however and concludes that he can't be the person they're after. However, when two children are killed, both with indications of having injections, Jack may be in the soup. Supt. Mullett advises him that he will have no choice but to advise the Chief Constable and that it will likely lead to a disciplinary hearing. Fortunately for Jack, he sees a number of holes in Maud's case leading him to the the real killer. Written by garykmcd

Two Touchy Cases
18 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Frost puts his career at stake to help a man who is mentally ill. He has done some pretty bizarre things in the past and has spent time in prison. During that time, he was treated brutally, but because of his actions (injecting small children with a harmless solution) Frost takes his word that he will not do it again. However, a young wife and her two children are murdered and this man becomes a solid suspect. In a second case, a man has been found in a remote area, having been dead for three months. He is a small time con-man and so he isn't treated with great respect, but his demise is interesting. Frost's partner, the same young woman from the previous episode, reports him to Mullett for letting the former guy go. He is hanging by his fingernails to avoid an investigative panel. There is quite a bit of tension between the two of them. This episode has an incredible conclusion; once again it gets at touchy social issues.
