Another one of the memorable episodes of Minder

It's hard to comment on this episode without spoiling it – so I won't. Suffice to say that this is one of the better episodes of Minder, in which all of the characters are at the peak of their acting game.

A nice aspect of the episode is that there isn't an undercurrent of Arthur-versus-Terry; instead, it's Arthur, Terry, Inspector Chisholm, and a number of other characters versus the one rascal (who's hard to dislike, despite his diabolical actions).

The series is well known for the nicknames given to the occasional characters and "Confident" is especially appropriate in this episode. The longer the episode goes, the more cringe-worthy and entertaining it gets. Enjoy!
