    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.

    David Jason said Frost was a man who passed from his fifties deep into his sixties during the course of the show, and wasn't likely to be knocking his pipe out until four in the morning. He figured it was better to put his head in a paint pot for a couple of hours and wind down that way.

    Frost had to be cleaned up from the books, where Frost was a chain smoker, but David Jason recently gave up smoking. He used to smoke four or five cigarettes a day, or in the evening with a drink, and didn't want to start again, and smoking was taboo on TV in 1992. Frost was made a former heavy smoker who had just quit, making him grumpy and irritable around people who still did.
