A Touch of Frost is one of Britain's most successful detective series. The drama stars award-winning actor David Jason as Detective Inspector Jack Frost, an unconventional policeman with a knack for attracting trouble. It has consistently placed in the top 10 on UK TV since the series debuted in 1992. Set in the dreary town of Denton near Bristol in southern England, Frost prefers solving crime to the monotony of police paperwork. Sloppy, disorganized and cantankerous, he often clashes with his commander, Superintendent Norman Horn-rimmed Harry Mullett. A champion for the common man, Frost approaches each case with his characteristic dry wit and a sense of moral justice.
