Did You Know?


Much is made of Roger Massie's car losing its rear license plate following the hit-and-run, with Frost deducing it was deliberately left behind. However, before the old man is run down, the car crashes into other parked vehicles and loses its front bumper, including the front license plate. Nothing is ever said about this nor does anyone attempt to investigate that part of the incident. As such, the issue of the rear license plate being left behind would be moot, as they would have the front license plate anyway. See more »


Frost: This is Detective Constable Webster, and he thinks gambling's a mug's game.
Phyllis Bowman: Oh, yeah, well as you can see, I've really suffered.
Frost: Yeah. Worst thing that could have happened to you, wasn't it, Phyllis? The old man having a heart attack and popping off like that.
Phyllis Bowman: The medical profession was dumbfounded, and that was just the private sector. He had the body of a twenty-year-old.
Frost: Mmm, a bit too often, by all accounts.
Phyllis Bowman: You know the story, I've been robbed.
Frost: Yeah, sad. Isn't that sad, Constable?

A Series of Plot Twists
8 September 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A man goes out to investigate a driver who is tearing around a parking lot, then a street. Unfortunately, even though he thinks he is safe, the car is put in reverse and the man is run over. He dies later. The chief suspect is a spoiled young businessman who is the son of a politically prominent woman At about the same time, a casino with a disreputable owner, is robbed of 5000 pounds. The owner, a harsh woman, usually handles things herself with the use of her hired thugs. The third plot involves a police officer who is a pervert. He is slow to respond to assignments and seems to be getting sexual favors from various women and then photographing them. There is also Frost's current partner, who is a taciturn young man who is by the book and has a very "moral" sense about him. He bugs Frost because he criticizes his methods. All these things are in the lap of our detective. He is fighting city hall, his captain, his partner, and an evil casino owner. A very engaging episode to say the least.
