Frost Invades the Military, 15 September 2015
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

The principle case here has to do with a death during military maneuvers. Apparently the British have a version of the National Guard (that is Weekend Warriors). They don't get much respect from the regular army guys. There are many layers of social issues here, including the treatment of gays in their military. We are immediately introduced to a young woman who takes her position very seriously. She is antagonistic and cruel. Of course, as viewers, we are immediately turned off by her by-the-book attitude. What Frost faces is a military that wants to solve its own problems. Frost believes the young man has been murdered; the military assumes it's an accident. He must use his usual smash and grab methods to invade a place not normally available to the regular police. The pacing and clarity of direction seems lacking in this episode, making it hard to hold one's attention.
