Trivia

Towards the end of the episode when Denis Waterman says "The feelings mutual cozzer" to Brian Blessed, he is directly referencing a 1975 Sweeney episode called Ringer in which Blessed plays a villain, Frank Kemble. In the final shootout scene of that Blessed knocks John Thaw to the ground and calls him "cozzer". Both The Sweeney and Minder were made by Euston Films. See more »

Fantastic cast...
18 September 2008 | by Mr-TellySee all my reviews

What an amazing cast for an everyday episode of Minder.

Reassuringly predictable story as ever...

Watching the Arthur and Terry brings back a lot of good memories for those of us who grew-up in Thatcher's Britain.

I can't imagine that many TV companies could afford to give bit parts to the likes of Ray Winstone (pre bulk), Ian McShane (pre Swearengen) and Brian Blessed (pre perma-beard) these days! Admittedly Rula Lenska (then Mrs Waterman) wouldn't break the budget now (especially since celebrity big brother), same goes for Michael Troughton (aka Piers Fletcher-Dervish from the New Statesman). Both put in stirling performances however.

Good fun!
