A priest, Father Rose, is found covered in the blood of a murdered woman, the death bearing the hallmarks of a ritual killing, and Detective Sergeant 'Razor' Sharpe is drafted in to assist Frost, having investigated a similar death in his own area. The dead woman's family feel that her ex-boyfriend is to blame but Frost believes the priest is more involved than he is letting on. A glamorous profiler joins the team and suggests that they are dealing with a serial killer. And she is right. At the same time Frost feels responsible for the loyal George Toolan being hospitalized with severe injuries after falling from a high building whilst helping him prevent a suicide.

Gripping from start to finish!
5 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A probable serial killer is on the loose, and Jack Frost has to work against time to catch the culprit, which also sees him reunited with D.S. 'Razor' Sharpe. He also has to work, albeit reluctantly, with a glamorous behavioural profiler.

A wonderfully acted drama, with a thrilling conclusion to the case, showcases all the actors' ability, which never fails for a second, while Jack's cornering of the suspect certainly explains the title to the episode.

A Touch of Frost continues to provide terrific and thrilling drama that always convinces the viewer, and Near Death Experience simply carries that trait on. Great!
