A sexual predator is on the loose in Denton. There have been a series of rapes and in all cases, he has broken into a home and waited for the victim to come home. The only exception is Emma Fox who, while driving home late one evening, finds that a man has hidden in the back seat of her car. The same evening, 17-year old Alison Cook has gone missing.A girlfriend thought she saw a man in an upstairs window but assumed it was her dad and thought nothing more of it. WPC Hazel Wallace is assigned to Frost and he decides to set a trap. Meanwhile, Frost is invited to a reunion in London for all Victoria and George Cross holders and the Chief Constable lets it be known that he expects Jack to attend. Only problem is that Jack has no idea where he's put his medal and can't find it. Written by garykmcd

My wife and I enjoyed this episode
1 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was the best of the series so far. David Jason, whom we liked in 'Only fools and horses', plays a completely different part (although we could see mannerisms and facial gestures that reminded us of 'Del boy') of the down to earth Inspector, who obviously does not like red tape. Jack is untidy both in the office and at home (the medal scene is a good example) and his attempts to have a girl friend to help his lonely personal life usually get bungled. However he uses his experience and logic to get the job done, and in this episode manages this before the 'Heavy squad' are brought in to take over the case. His W.P.C plays a good part as his decoy.The rest of the cast are well supportive
