Easily my top 5 Minder episode
24 October 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A truly great episode. Jimmy Nail is perfect as the head of the gypsies. I totally love his 1st conversation with Terry.

Q: You want to fight me? I've taken on 10 like you". A: Then 1 shouldn't worry you then".

The episode has it all. Great script and plot. Seedy bad guys. A very young and thin Ray Winstone and a fantastic fight scene.

The episode to me really captures early 80's inner London living, with dodgy characters, rain drizzled, broken and uneven footpaths, and people willing to do anything to survive in (to quote the Young Ones) "Thatcher's bloody Britain".
