A BBC Radio 4 full-cast drama starring Derek Martin, the precursor to the popular TV series and novels.
Jack Frost is disheveled, disorganised and disrespectful. His superiors don't like him. He has a habit of doing things his way - and getting results. But when Denton CID is faced with a spate of major crimes, Frost finds himself under pressure.
A young woman becomes the sixth victim of a multiple rapist, a teenage girl goes missing, there's a robbery at the Purple Parrot nightclub, and an old man is injured in a hit-and-run. With all this on his plate, Frost has little time and less patience for paperwork - but if he doesn't submit the overtime reports, there will be hell to pay. Has Frost bitten off more than he can chew?
A Touch of Frost gave rise to a hugely successful TV series that ran between 1992 and 2010. This gritty drama, first broadcast on Radio 4 in 1982, features Derek Martin as Jack Frost, with a supporting cast including Haydn Wood, Stephen Thorne and Alan Dudley.

Performances and story are fine but file is incomplete. Original broadcast ran to an hour and a half (as stated in the publishers summary above). CD version is 2 discs, Audible's version is obviously only disc 1. Reported this to customer support on release but seems that the problem has still not been resolved. Audible has fallen down badly here.
