Jack Frost is on the case of a murdered woman. It seems her husband had
killed her, but is it really that simple? It turns out that this man
was also under investigation 10 years previously....
Frost discusses his case with his former boss, but has he got something to hide? That's the least of Jack Frost's problems however...
Cue Cassandra from Only Fools and Horses and there is certainly great rivalry between Gwyneth Strong and David Jason, but you can never shy away from the fact that these two are really the best of friends! As usual with A Touch of Frost, you get a great storyline mixed with intrigue and a super conclusion - True Confessions is certainly that.
A very good episode with Frost coming under investigation from the British version of internal affairs. A man spent ten years in prison because of a case where evidence was probably manipulated to get a confession. Also, a harsh businesswoman has been murdered (it was made to look like suicide) and her murder pits two brothers against one another. The two interesting aspects are the heavy handedness of the investigation into Frost (who is having none of it, even though he is suspended), and a confession made before the murder where a man says he is going to commit the act. The priest, of course, is caught in the old seriousness of the sacrament of confession. He has to weigh very carefully how he is going to present this if called upon. Another interesting aspect of this case is the old methods of police work versus the rights of possible criminals. A visit to a retired priest is excellently presented and a high point of the episode.
