Did You Know?


After a severed human arm is discovered on the banks of the river Humber, Frost meets with police in Hull who are investigating the discovery, yet the arm is washed up on the west bank which would fall under the jurisdiction of the Grimsby force. Also; on his way to Hull, Frost is seen driving westerly across the Humber Bridge - again this would take him away from Hull. See more »

Adequate enough
6 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A health and safety inspector disappears and a young girl is found dead, and Frost has his work cut out. On top of that, he has to take care of a police dog! Amusing moments abound, particularly when the animal takes an instant dislike to Supt. Mullett! A full-hardy game of cat-and-mouse in Jack's attempts to nail a suspect enlightens the viewer, and the case is brought to a violent conclusion, which almost results in death....

One Man's Meat isn't the best episode of A Touch of Frost, but the sheer moments of comedy mixed with the usual drama makes it a perfectly adequate edition in the franchise. 7/10
