A welcome return for the detective
23 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

David Jason returns as Frost for the first time since 2006 which sees the detective reeling at the release of a man suspected of murdering two teenage girls 20 years previously. There is also the case of an amusing prank that leads to the death of a local businessman.

With friends, family and the local community disgusted by the fact that convicted killer Carl Meyer has been released from jail, they are desperate to discover the remains of the second victim, whose body was never found. However, there will be a surprise in store, especially when forensic evidence seems to point out rather disturbing facts that leave Frost questioning his previous judgement.....

Interesting twists to the tale certainly keeps the viewer enthralled, and we are left wondering whether or not Meyer's conviction was perhaps a miscarriage of justice with the real killer still on the streets or the fact that the quiet and subdued suspect really is guilty. Actor Jonathan Slinger's portrayal as Meyer certainly raises those questions.

Mind Games is a welcome return for what is now the 14th series of A Touch of Frost, and it continues the wonderful trend we've come to expect from the series. 8/10
