Storyline

DI Jack Frost is now living above an Indian curry restaurant and his day is off to an inauspicious start when he is held by a gun-toting teenager suspected of dealing in drugs. The police are concerned that there may be others guns being sold on the street. He also has to deal with another armed robbery of a security van and the death of a part-time soldier on maneuvers who was shot when everyone was supposed to be using blanks. Frost suspects the van robberies are an inside job. It's determined that the soldier could not have been shot with a military weapon and the police find an identical pistol to that used by the gun-toting teenager. Frost soon determines the motive and the identity of the killer. Written by garykmcd

Guns, guns and more guns dominate the three cases Jack Frost has to try and solve, involving a hostage situation, armed robbery and an unexpected death....

The daunting aspects of army life are rife and brings some insight into the proceedings, and may even be educational to those who want to join the army.

As viewers will see, this episode comes to a satisfactory conclusion, where blackmail and downright greed dominate the proceedings, but this is not the best episode of A Touch of Frost.

Unknown Soldiers is not as hugely enjoyable as other episodes and in my mind is probably the weakest edition in Series 4. It is watchable certainly, but it's not a favourite of mine as such.
