About this programme

1/3. Another chance to see the feature-length first episode of the popular detective drama. Inspector Jack Frost's investigation into the case of a missing child uncovers a skeleton chained to a locked strongbox that tantalisingly turns out to be empty, but provides evidence of a crime committed 30 years previously. David Jason stars as the irascible detective, with Bruce Alexander, Matt Bardock and Claire Hackett.
