Trivia
Like The Darling Buds of May (1991), both shows had a tough food regime that was hard on David Jason's stomach, because Frost wasn't a healthy eater, e.g. bacon sandwiches, chips, fry-ups, etc. People used to remark on it to Jason, that he was eating badly.

David Jason used to go to a hotel periodically for seminars to go through scripts, plot developments and story ideas for the show.

Filming meant spending a lot of time away from home, at the studios in Leeds or on location in Wetherby, Harrogate, Dewsbury and all local stations. Yorkshire Television made it easy on David Jason by renting out a cottage rather than pay for a hotel, especially since Jason could cook for himself; he just wanted somewhere simple to go at the end of the day to clear his head. Yorkshire Television found Jason an old farmer's cottage without central heating, so he had to light a fire; on warm evenings he sat out in the garden which was always a pleasure. When asked did he get lonely, he said he didn't, because he enjoyed the quiet time. He also had his own driver, on call 24hrs a day, who collected Jason from Buckinghamshire for the 3hr drive to Yorkshire while he worked on his scripts, stop along the way for a bacon and egg roll and a cup of tea ("a very Frost-like meal"). Jason lived in a spartan farm cottage while the cast of Frost stayed at a hotel.

Goofs
Assuming that Frost had joined the police as a young man, he would have been too short. David Jason is 5'6" and the minimum height for a male police officer in England was at least 5'8" (5'10" in some forces) until 1990.

Frost: No, it's not him. He's too stupid.
