Quotes

Arthur Daley: [writing] Dear Terrence. No. Terry. Dear Terry, I am writing this in case something happens to me. You would laugh if you could see me now, but what with having this operation, I seem to have gone a bit morbid. This is just to say that you have been like a son to me, even though at times I might have been a bit inconsiderate. But you know what the pressures on the entrepreneur are, in this day and age.

Fun, Intriguing and Exciting!
5 October 2016 | by (England) – See all my reviews

It's always fun when Arthur is fitted up for a crime by the slimy Chisholm, and mixed with a comedic storyline involving Arthur being taken into hospital, presents a fun and interesting hour of TV that is one of the best for showing off George Cole's comedy skills.

The main plot is interesting, and ranks among one of Minder's more creatively diverse stories. It collates all of the primary concepts such as the anarchist bookmaker, the antagonistic cops and the dark thugs, but also some very interesting elements, particularly Arthur's hospital visit and Chisholm's informer.

The way the plot unfolds makes for maximum intrigue and I found myself glued to the screen right to the end. It episode keeps a constant and cautious pace that pays off brilliantly during the climax.

The fight scenes are well-designed and the acting is entirely convincing. Obviously, George Cole gives the best performance in the episode but from the supporting cast, I'd say Roger Hammond's performance as Albert Wendell is the most convincing of the bunch. He fits the agoraphobic bookmaker role incredibly well and leaves a lasting impression

Overall, Get Daley is a fun and interesting episode that I always enjoy watching. The humour is excellent, the action is spot-on and the cast is stellar, a truly great Minder.
