[show]David Jason said the popularity of the show was based on a hunch that had well and truly paid off. He liked the darkness of the show after the lightness of Only Fools and Horses (UK) and The Darling Buds of May (UK) because it showed audiences he could play both, but lightness became a part of Frost too.
