touch of frost
A touch of frost is a television series initially based on the Frost novels by R. D. Wingfield. It stars David Jason as Detective Inspector William Edward "Jack" Frost, known almost universally as Jack, an experienced and dedicated detective who frequently clashes with his superiors and his Superintendent Norman Mullett, played by Bruce Alexander.
The series is set in the fictional Midland town of Denton, and is marked by a gritty tone. The role of Frost was notable in changing the public perception of David Jason from a predominantly comic actor to a dramatic actor. Unlike most TV detectives, Frost does not have a single regular sidekick, and indeed some of his sidekicks are seen in only one or two episodes. There are, however, a number of regular supporting characters who are frequently seen and often promoted to a "sidekick" role.
One of the latest episodes of April is “if dogs run free” which also consist of a part two, the storyline of this episodes is; the first in the final two-part episode in the series sees Frost attempting to crack an illegal dog-fighting ring, only to discover that its manager, a wealthy Denton businessman, has links to a drug-smuggling operation. Frost also begins to form a relationship with RSPCA Inspector Christine Moorhead, and attempts to finally get over the death of his wife.
