    The A Touch of Frost second season episode "A Minority of One" continues the first season’s dark tone. The world is filled with police who are either pompous bureaucrats or cynics (or both), and populated with angry, abusive, thieving men who sleep with prostitutes, who are so unattractive in both appearance and charm, that one wonders if they have to pay their own clients for sex. While Frost is at least a cynic who cares, the one real exception is Frost’s partner for this single episode, the black DC Tanner, well played by Lennie James as a competent, caring officer who sees the racism, both from ignorance (in Frost’s case) and from anger, in the police and in society, and tries to expose it as best he can. Like many cop shows, there is also a chase scene, and this one seems particularly tacked-on and pointless. If you like to explore the dark side, so to speak, of low-life society, then you’ll enjoy this episode. Otherwise you should still enjoy Lennie James performance as well as his interaction with David Jason’s DI Frost.moreless
