DI Jack Frost investigates the murder of Nick Walder who was part of a group of saboteurs trying to disrupt the local hunt. DC Clive Barnard, the Chief Constable's nephew, is re-assigned to Denton CID. Suspicion falls on many, including the local hunt organizers and some of the saboteurs themselves as there was a schism within the group. A second saboteur, a local landscape gardener, is also murdered but when police uncover several barrels of antiques carefully packed and buried at the garden centre, the investigation takes a different turn. One of the hunt members, Stephen Milmore, owns an art gallery and also employs Ruth, the daughter of hunt organizer Alex Ormrod. Frost now needs to connect these events to identify the murderer.

Did You Know?


This episode was originally (and subsequently) shown out of sequence. It was supposed to be the first episode of season three, as DCI Allen is mentioned as still being at the station (although away on leave), whereas in the previous episode, "Appropriate Adults", DCI Hawkes has replaced him.

Another interesting case for Jack Frost
19 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a local hunt saboteur is murdered, Frost must pit his wits against the local hunt organisers in order to find out the truth....However, he soon comes to realise that someone very close to home may know what happened....

Jack is reunited with old sidekick DC Barnard, but their working relationship slowly begins to turn sour.... However, when a horrifying accident leaves one person dead and another seriously injured, they soon reconcile their differences.

Quarry is another fine edition in the Frost franchise combining the usual serious drama with a dash of humour, just to keep the viewer entertained. A round-the-clock investigation finally leads to the suspects in which no doubt may leave viewers surprised. A well-acted story with fine performances. 9/10
