I'm quite certain many people were trying to guess the fate of D.I. Frost; does he meet his maker or simply retire peacefully and live happily ever after? There were three different endings filmed to mark the end of show, and even the cast members themselves had no clue as to which 'ending' was going to be broadcast.
I was personally satisfied with the conclusion; I wonder what other people thought of it? An alternate ending was shown on the internet immediately after the show was broadcast, and the DVD release also includes this.
The end of A Touch of Frost certainly brings to a close to one of the most popular drama series on British TV, which in no doubt kept us viewers hooked with its superb story lines - which sometimes dealt with difficult subjects such as paedophilia and racism - strong and believable acting, and its mixture of humour and versatility. The show will be greatly missed, but I hope to see Sir David Jason in other worthwhile roles in the future. 8/10
