Frost investigates the death of a young junkie, Ben Cornish. He is assisted by DC Costello, recently demoted after a punch up with a superior officer. The pathologist initially believes that Cornish choked on his own vomit but the autopsy reveals that he was beaten to death. Cornish had been in a good deal of trouble lately. He had stolen from his sister, he was harassing a local doctor and had been forcefully evicted while squatting in an abandoned house. A chance comment from a police constable gives Frost the vital information needed to bring the case to a close. Written by garykmcd

An OK episode with an outstanding cast
23 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The mystery plots are only a fraction of what makes Frost a success. Much of it has to do with the interaction of Frost and his colleagues at the cop shop...and of course, the fine visiting cast members.

This episode is a case in point. The solution to the actual murder mystery jumped out at me about 30 minutes in and was no big surprise, but it was still fun to see David Jason and Neil Dudgeon work out the details. A sub-plot involving Supt. Mullett getting plastered at a going-away party added additional fun.

And speaking of Dudgeon, the supporting cast in this episode reads like a who's who of men who went on to have major roles in other mystery and/or police shows. Check out the credits on Neil Dudgeon, Gerard Horan (the cop in THE BANK JOB), Michael Feast, James Saxon, and Colin (Pascoe) Buchanan. And the episode was directed by John Glenister, father of the brothers Philip (LIFE ON MARS) and Robert.
