Storyline

Feature-length special from the popular TV series "Minder". Saving deceased gangster Jack South's daughter Nikki from an attack by hired thugs earns "minder" Terry McCann a trip for two across Europe on the famous Orient Express. But a perfect romantic opportunity with his girlfriend Annie is ruined when his dodgy employer & "friend" Arthur Daley cons his way onto the trip to avoid a court appearance, and Terry again finds himself battling to protect Nikki from a whole train load of sinister characters all after Nikki's legacy. Add to this a Mafia hitman, a gun-toting Interpol officer and an unwelcome appearance by Terry & Arthurs' London nemesis, the long suffering Detective Sergeant Chisholm... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

This episode was deliberately pitched against the first feature-length Christmas special of Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) in 1985 since the two shows were considered rivals because of their similar characters and scenarios. David Jason never considered them rivals because he was a big fan of Minder (1979) and felt it was something stirred up by the press just to sell newspapers. In the end, Only Fools came out ahead with an audience of 17 million, which shocked Jason. See more »

Fantastic !

This film spin off from the brilliant series Minder, is a classic. I have this film on video & DVD and have watched it many times. Brilliant performances from all, especially Cole, Waterman & Malahide (Chisholm). The soundtrack to the film is spot on too. This is an absolute "must have"
