An excellent example of the cast of Minder at their peak.
3 March 2014 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I've watched every episode of Minder many times, but this episode has always been a favorite. It won't mean as much to anyone who hasn't had the Arthur/Terry relationship intricacies cemented by watching the previous episodes, but what is especially endearing to this episode is the guest appearances and side plots.

Roger Sloman, Richard Griffiths, and Wanda Ventham are all wonderful and convincing, while the sub-plots of Arthur's love life and his hopelessly-incompetent business dealings are true-to-form and entertaining. The interaction between Waterman and Griffiths is something special and enjoyable. The series is renown for portraying Terry's suffering at the hands of Arthur's business dealings, but this episode excels because it allows Terry a brief moment of enjoyment and escape ... before a return to his usual tightrope walk between victim and hero.

Yes, the ending is a little muddled, but as for many Minder episodes, the journey is greater than the destination. This episode's journey shows a cast entirely comfortable in their roles, and is a destination in itself.
