|TV Times Listing||Episode Locations|
Terry is hired to mind a recently released convict Albert Stubbs who doesn't intend sharing his buried treasure with his old partners. It doesn't take long before Rose Mellors, the wife of one of these partners, tracks Stubbs down. But who is the real Albert Stubbs? As Terry soon discovers, even being hired as Stubbs's minder doesn't mean he is told everything.
Cast: Nicky Henson as George Wilson, Kenneth Cope as Albert Stubbs, Ann Lynn as Rose Mellors, Tony Selby as Jack
Uncredited: Tony Allen as Removal Man (hiding Arthur's mini in his van), Hal Galili as Terry's sauna client, James Greene as Barman
Facts: Former Randall & Hopkirk star Kenneth Cope plays the part of Albert Stubbs in this episode which marks the first of three appearances for him in Minder over a 15 year period. This is the first time we see Terry driving around in a white Ford Capri, registration JRX 782P, seen as Terry collects (who he believes to be) Stubbs from Wormwood Scrubs. This particular car is never seen again. Glynn Edwards does not appear in this episode.
Filming Dates: June/early July or August 1979 (likely)
Double Take: Ann Lynn (Rose) and Tony Selby (Jack) would both later reprise their characters in episode #2.10 Diamonds Are A Girl's Worst Enemy. Tony Selby would return again as a different character Muldoon in #7.2 Days Of Fines & Closures. Kenneth Cope would later appear as Scooter in #6.6 Waiting For Goddard and as Phelan in #10.9 Bring Me The Head Of Arthur Daley, the penultimate episode of the entire series.
Bloopers: Watch out for a few bloopers in this episode - firstly when Arthur first goes around to see Terry at his flat, when Arthur closes the door it actually opens up again! Also, when Jack (Tony Selby) first goes around to see Rose at the garden centre, there is something very odd about the front number plate on his silver Capri. Also, watch the scene where the two green minis are together and keep an eye on what is going on behind them, when the left mini drives off there has obviously been a cut somewhere. Also, no end credit for 'Mickey the barman' despite him having many spoken lines in this episode. Even more bloopers can be found on Minder forum, click the red button below.
