Storyline

DI Jack Frost investigates a series of burglaries directed against old age pensioners. Things take a serious turn when an elderly woman is badly beaten. On examination however, this case doesn't fit the pattern of the others and may not be related. As well, the victim was very difficult and disliked by many, including neighbours and community volunteers. The case takes a nasty turn when another elderly victim is found dead, with the potential to create a panic among the public. Frost concludes that the second victim knew her attacker and proceeds to eliminate all possible suspects, one by one. Written by garykmcd

Jack Frost and new sidekick D.S. Lawson work together to solve mystery attacks on elderly people....It seems that someone close to home is responsible, but can Jack find out before it's too late?

Actress Sally Dexter was well appointed as Lawson, a glamorous female detective who may has a dark side to her that viewers want to know more about. Christopher Fulford too is very convincing as gentle character Ronald Gould, but is he hiding a deeply hurt conscience?

This is an intriguing edition of A Touch of Frost, with the case arriving at a startling conclusion. A perfectly watchable episode in the franchise. 8/10
