Cast: Liza Goddard as Jocelyn Maxwell-Saunders, Jane Garr as Rita, Ken Hutchison as Brickett, Jim Norton as O'Brady, Robert Swann as Jeremy Burnham-Jones, Jeremy Young as Everett, Billy Kerry as Georgie Gumm, Raymond Young as Clerk of the Scales, John Fahey as Point to Point Bookie
Story: Terry joins Arthur on a little seaside trip to Brighton where Arthur has a meet with Jeremy Burnham-Jones. When they get there the last thing Terry expects to be minding a horse and only agrees to it when he meets the lovely Jocelyn Maxwell-Saunders. Arthur thinks he is on to a right winner with Jeremy selling miniature statues. They both soon realise that there is more to Jeremy and Miss Saunders than they first thought.
Facts: This is one of the few times where the the episode is set outside London. The late Robert Swann was a familiar face on TV at the time and is instantly recognisable to a TV generation as the man who tried to sell you Churchill Car nsurance. Ken Hutchison who also appeared in this episode had previously appeared alongside Dennis Waterman in The Sweeney TV series and film, Sweeney 2. Throughout this episode we are led to believe he is in fact the person looking to destroy the horse, but we soon learn he has other reasons for doing what he does. This episode is the first to feature inside shots of Terry's flat, which at this point in the series is located in Glazbury Road, W14.
Bloopers: None found.
Title: National Velvet, a 1944 film starring Mickey Rooney and Elizabeth Taylor, where a young girl Velvet Brown (Taylor) is encouraged to train a horse for the Grand National.
013. Whose Wife is It Anyway? - Written by Tony Hoare #2.2

Story: Terry gets to mind an antique shop belonging to a Arthur's friend Alex who is in hospital after getting beaten up. When Terry gets there he seems a little concerned as he is surprised to find that the joint owner Jim is gay. Arthur on the other hand thinks Terry is wrong and looks for some answers from Alex's wife Gloria. When Jim doesn't seem bothered by Terry being at the shop, Terry begins to wonder if there is more to the situation than he first thought.
Facts: Janet Key had previously played Jack Regan's wife in The Sweeney pilot 'Regan' and the episode 'Abduction'.
Double Take: David Daker who plays hospital-striken Alex, would later appear as a different character in #6.2 'Life In The Fast Food Lane'.
Bloopers: None found.
Title: Whose Life is it Anyway?, a 1972 film and play by Brian Clark.
014. You Lose Some, You Win Some - Written by Jeremy Burnham #2.3
Directed by James Gatward
First Broadcast in the UK: 25th September 1980
Cast: Anthony Valentine as Maurice Michaelson, Gennie Nevinson as Penny, Beth Morris as Jackie, Peggy Thorpe-Bates as Mrs. Beecham, Ronald Leigh-Hunt as Major Lampson, Clifford Parrish as Alnutt, Angela Easterling as Miss Carr, Kenneth Midwood as Jackson, Lesley Joseph as Maureen, Leslie Schofield as Parsons, Lynda Baron as Sadie, Michael Watkins as Tony, Sidney Livingstone as George, Toni Palmer & Pamela Manson as Women at Health Farm
Story: When Arthur bumps into Maurice at The New Beaumont Casino, Arthur decides that Maurice's new gambling school needs protection. When Arthur goes around to ask Terry, he receives a frosty reception from Terry's girlfriend Penny. When Arthur tells Terry there is 600 quid in it for him, Terry decides that Penny could join them and he would give her a cut of his earnings. Casino owner Parsons is soon on to Maurice and his system and Arthur & Terry decide the only way to protect the entire team is if they stay at Terry's flat. Meanwhile, Maurice's wife Maureen believes Maurice is cheating on her after her friend Sadie overhears Penny and Welsh girl Jackie talking about Maurice in the toilets at the casino. Maureen promptly disappears and the situation soon goes from bad to worse as Terry is asked to mind the team and track down Maureen at the same time.
Facts: The author of this episode has a very similar name to Jeremy Burnham-Jones, the name of a character in episode #2.1 'National Pelmet' - we have no idea if this is intentional. Author Jeremy Burnham had previously been an actor on TV between the 1950s and 1970s. In this episode we learn that Penny really doesn't have much time for Arthur due to the way he treats Terry. We also learn that Maurice has two children and that he and wife Maureen live in Hendon.
Double Take: Lynda Baron previously appeared in an uncredited role as Dave's barmaid in #1.1 'Gunfight At The OK Laundrette'. Anthony Valentine as Maurice Michaelson had previously appeared in #1.6 'Aces High & Sometimes Very Low'. Sidney Livingstone who plays bouncer George would later appear in The Ray Daley Years as Arthur's brother Bert Daley from series 8 onwards.
Bloopers: Watch carefully in this episode when Terry & Maurice arrive at the shopping centre in Brent Cross. From the second they arrive the other shoppers are watching them - as they go up the escalator you can see the whole shopping centre staring at them.
Title: A play on words "You win some, you lose some" being the more common expression - Terry says the name of the episode at the end, when after being dealt a bad deal from Arthur and Maurice ends up following Jackie back to her place.
015. A Lot Of Bull And A Pat On The Back -
Written by Tony Hoare #2.4
Directed by Terry Green
First Broadcast in the UK: 2nd October 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Diana Malin as Debbie, Gennie Nevinson as Penny, Leon Sinden as Smith, Derek Benfield as Brown, Ann Bruce as Bella, Ken Wynne as Creasey, Richard Cubison as Heavy, Max Mason as Shop Assistant, Leonard Braden as Policeman
Story: Arthur is approached by what he believes to be two local farmers and is asked to repossess a bull. Due the amount of money involved Arthur agrees to help. The following day the bull appears on the front page of the newspaper and as Terry was Arthur's accomplice, he's determined to give it back any way he can to avoid getting nicked. Meanwhile, Terry is asked by Debbie to look out for punter who is threatening the girls at a local strip club.
Facts: The second of five appearances here by Diana Malin as the lovely Debbie Mitchell. In this episode we learn that Debbie is extremely fond of Terry, and although he likes Debbie as a friend, Terry's mind seems set on his air hostess girlfriend, Penny. This episode has some very long scenes at the strip club, many of which were edited out on repeat showings. For many years it was assumed this episode was the final episode of series 2.
Bloopers: None found.
016. Don't Tell Them Willie Boy Was Here -
Written by Paul Wheeler #2.5
Directed by Dennis Abey
First Broadcast in the UK: 9th October 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Alfred Marks as Barney Mather, Paul Barber as Willie Reynolds, Tania Rogers as Ruth Reynolds, Ronnie Stevens as T.V. compere, Benny Lee as Boxing Commentator, Alex Tompkins as Jack Straw, Dinny Powell as Pug, Eddie Stacey as Sparing Partner, Imogen Bickford-Smith as Girl in Disco, Barry Wade as Fashion Photographer, Vicki Michelle as Sarah Jane, Mandy Perryment as Trudy, Guest appearance by JACKIE COLLINS
Story: Ex-undefeated light heavyweight champion Willie Reynolds aka 'The Mersey Mouth' is back in the UK from Jamaica for a comeback fight against Jack Straw. His manager Barney Mather asks Arthur for Terry's services as a Minder. When Willie confesses to Terry that he is not up to it anymore, Terry agrees to train Willie privately through fear of him being exploited. Barney doesn't like this arrangement and soon after discovering the training, Terry is fired as Willie's minder. As he leaves Terry reminds Willie that people like Barney are only in it for the money and that he will suffer at their hands. During the fight, Willie sees Barney doing some sort of deal which inspires him to go on and win the fight, much to the surprise of everyone.
Facts: A cameo appearance in this episode by Jackie Collins. When Gary Webster appeared on the same Michael Aspel show as Jackie Collins in 1991 she recalled working on this episode. Paul Barber is better known for his role as Denzil in the BBC comedy 'Only Fools & Horses' and Vicki Michelle is better known from 'Allo Allo'. In this episode we see Arthur driving a ROVER SD1 for the first time as he and Terry arrive at Willie's house. This car later reappears in episode 18 'A Nice Little Wine'. This is one of the rare episodes of Minder in which we actually see Arthur making any sort of money, having bet on Willie to win. A special Daily Mirror newspaper (dated Friday, May 16th 1980) was produced for this episode which is seen being read by Arthur in the Winchester - click the image below to enlarge a picture of this newspaper. This date shows a five month gap between production and transmission.
Double Take: There is also a very brief uncredited appearance by actor Jesse Birdsall (known to many as as 'Beckett' in the 90s TV show 'Bugs') - he would later appear in a credited role in 'Minder On The Orient Express'. The episode also features Imogen Bickford-Smith who plays the girl in the disco (possibly more recognisable from her role as Nicky Henson's girlfriend in 'The Psychiatrist' episode of Fawlty Towers).
Bloopers: When Terry collects Ruth from the airport, he is wearing a dark blue shirt and jacket. In the next scene at the gym he has obviously changed. When Ruth finally meets Willie it seems this is the first time they have met and there is a slight continuation problem here.
Title: Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here, a film from 1969 starring Robert Redford and Katherine Ross.
017. Not A Bad Lad, Dad - Written by Tony Hoare
Directed by Ian Toynton
First Broadcast in the UK: 16th October 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Warren O'Neill as Peter, Sharon Duce as Beryl, Gennie Nevinson as Penny, Lesley Claire O'Neill as Mary, Martin Bax as Bob, Dicken Ashworth as Ronnie, Geoffrey Leesley as Duty Sergeant, Ray Burdis and Nicholas Diprose as Disco Youths, Stanley Price as Publican
Story: A young boy Peter turns up at Terry's doorstep with a note from his mother Beryl making Terry believe he could be his father. Terry and Beryl had a short relationship a few years before while Terry was boxing up north. Arthur shows little compassion for Terry's problem. Terry soon becomes very attached to Peter. While Beryl stays with her friends Mary & Bob, Terry attempts to track her down and begins to suspect that Beryl's husband Ronnie is abusing her. Although Terry is relieved that he is not Peter's real father he does become very attached to him during their short stay together.
Facts: There are some very un-typical Minder scenes at the end of this episode where Terry reminisces about time spent with what could have been his son. There is mixed opinion about these scenes between fans of the show, some thinking they are suitable and some thinking they should have been left out. The episode also features incidental music that also features in #1.11 'You Gotta Have Friends'.
Name That Tune: There is a song playing in the nightclub where Terry takes Peter - this is "Can't Walk On Water" by Wally Waller, which also featured in the Australian series Prisoner: Cell Block H.
Bloopers: Listen carefully at 19m57s when Arthur arrives at Terry's flat, as they walk towards Terry's flat you can hear three beeps - what are they? Also at 25m when Terry and Peter walk up towards Big Ben, Dennis Waterman has obviously been spotted by the crowd of children hat are sitting there.
018. The Beer Hunter - Written by Willis Hall
Directed by Tom Clegg
First Broadcast in the UK: 23rd October 1980
Cast: Brian Glover as Yorkie, Georgina Hale as Renee, Pat Ashton as Dora, Alan David as Chef, Robert Blythe as Coliver, Jo Warne as Brenda, William Rourke as Police Constable, Janine Duvitski as Carol, Carlos Douglas as Carlos, Marshall Ward as Trev, Barrie Rutter as Reg, Victor Baring as Enrico
Uncredited: Harry 'Aitch' Fielder as fruit machine player in Winchester Club, Tommy Coombes as man with hands in his pockets at the coach station.
Story: When Arthur's mate Yorkie comes down to London for a reunion with Arthur, they both have a little too much to drink. Arthur gives Terry the job of taking Yorkie home, only to discover he has gone missing the following day. With Yorkie's wife Dora on the way down to London in a few hours the hunt is on for Yorkie, who has ended up lost in London, with a prostitute called Renee without his trousers and no idea what the name of his hotel was. When Terry discovers the night porter who let Yorkie back into his hotel was actually a moonlighting teacher, the trail leads them to a one armed taxi driver and the hunt is on to find Yorkie before wife Dora lands on their doorstep.
Facts: This episode features a particularly memorable scene where Arthur interrupts a game of rugby in order to attract the attention of the referee, a teacher who has been covering as a night porter at the hotel where Yorkie was staying. No explanation is given in this episode as to why Terry's flat is full of telephones, but we can assume it must have something to do with Arthur. The great Brian Glover guest stars in this episode - possibly the greatest actor ever to come from Barnsley, he appeared in many other roles over the years and is known by British viewers as being the voice of Tetley tea bags. Pat Ashton who plays his wife starred in an early 1970s sitcom with John Thaw and Bob Hoskins called 'Thick As Thieves'. At just after 26 minutes Arthur refers to the black jazz musician as a 'lemonade', which tends to be edited out of any TV repeats of the episode. Georgina Hale had previously appeared alongside Dennis Waterman in The Sweeney 2 film.
Bloopers: A minor continuation blooper in this episode. When Arthur and Terry leave the rugby game, they are being followed by the infamous brown Ford Cortina (see our 'Dodgy Motors' section). As they turn the corner the car is magically parked up on the left hand side of the street - quite amazing! Also, watch carefully at 35m 40s as Arthur is singing to himself while the boys play football on the street - the rear window on the driver's side of his Jag is slightly down - seconds later as the ball hits the car, the window is up again. As they head for the church, the window is down again and when they finally arrive it is back up.
Name That Tune: At the end of this episode Arthur, Yorkie and Dora sing 'Mairzy Dotes', a novelty song first composed in 1943 and popular with American servicemen overseas.
Title: The Deer Hunter, a 1978 film starring Robert De Niro, Christoper Walken and Meryl Streep, which examines the effects of the Vietnam war on the lives of people in a small American industrial town.
019. A Nice Little Wine - Written by Stanley
Directed by Christopher Menaul
First Broadcast in the UK: 30th October 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Peter Jeffrey as Clive Stannard, Rachel Davies as Bettina, Lois Baxter as Sandra, Ron Pember as George, Pam St Clement as Mrs Baker (Sandra's Mum), Diana Berriman as Joan, Patrick Malahide as D.S. Chisholm, Davyd Harries as Policeman, Donald Douglas as Scots Winetaster, Michael Logan as 1st Winetaster, James Griffiths as 2nd Winetaster, Burt Kwouk as Sojo
Uncredited: Rocky Taylor as heavy in Marital Aids shop.
Story: After doing a wine deal with Arthur, wine dealer Clive Stannard believes that Arthur has set him up after he is drugged and robbed when staying a night at a hotel. Terry is sent undercover as a wine entrepreneur to find out the culprit responsible before Arthur receives the kicking of his life.
Facts: This episode was not repeated on UK television until re-runs of the series on the Granada Plus (later GPLUS) channel in 1999 and quite why UK GOLD never showed this episode in their mid 1990s re-runs is a mystery. This episode features an appearance by Pam St Clement, aka Pat Evans from her pre-Eastenders days. Also appearing is the lovely Rachel Davies, who has appeared on many other UK shows over the years including Crossroads, Boon and Emmerdale. In this episode we learn that Terry was in prison in 1971.
Bloopers: Several continuation bloopers exist in this episode - keep a close eye on each time when Arthur is on the phone (twice!). Firstly, in the phone box he is speaking to his contact after drinking wine at Terry's flat - his tie and handkerchief are different from that he was wearing just moments before. He's seen wearing the same the next day when Clive reappears at the Winchester. The same thing happens at around 25 minutes - when Terry calls him he has different suit, shirt and tie on to when he is speaking to his contact Leslie just moments later. Also, the scenes of the Rover driving along the street are exactly the same at 16m 43s and at 34m 33s, just recycled footage. Also listen carefully to when Joan (Bettina's flat mate) appears at the flat and attacks Arthur - her voice has obviously been redubbed afterwards.
020. All Mod Cons - Written by Andrew Payne #2.9
Directed by Ian Sharp
First Broadcast in the UK: 6th November 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Michael Robbins as McQueen, Annette Lynton as Helen, Toyah Willcox as Kate, James Ottaway as Vickery, Simon Cadell as Simon, Michael O'Hagan as Filmer, Mike Savage as Bernie, Frances Low as Shirley, Tony Osoba as Pearce, Sara Clee as Rita, Douglas Reith as Bellars, Michael Jayes as Boardman
Story: While Terry is trying to evict two squatters, Arthur decides to sell Terry's flat without his permission. Meanwhile, Terry gets a job minding at a local club and ends up getting into more trouble than he had planned for when he realises the club's manager is on the fiddle.
Facts: This episode marks the first of two appearances in Minder by Simon Cadell. He also features in the last ever Dennis Waterman episode #7.6 'The Wrong Goodbye'. He is possibly better remembered for his role as site manager Jeffrey Fairbrother in the hit BBC comedy 'Hi-de-hi!'. Tony Osaba is probably best known for his TV roles as McClaren in the BBC comedy 'Porridge' and as Sergeant Chas Jarvis in 'Dempsey & Makepeace'.
Bloopers: None found.
Title: The term 'All Mod Cons' is a short form of 'all modern conveniences' which is paradoxical in this episode as it is centred around squatters who have nothing, as well as the obvious "con" that is taking place by Kate (Toyah Wilcox).
021. Diamonds Are a Girl's Worst Enemy - Written
by Paul Wheeler #2.10
Directed by Christopher King
First Broadcast in the UK: 20th November 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Ann Lynn as Rose Mellors, Tony Selby as Jack, George Layton as Des, Zia Mohyeddin as Tajvir, John Ringham as Harrison, Sam Kydd as Sid, Celia Foxe as Miss Cawley, Howard Attfield as Driver, Leo Dolan as Yoyo Pickles, Charles Cork as 1st Player, John Mulcahy as 2nd Player
Story: A Mercedes that Terry has been hired to look after for Rose Mellors disappears along with the diamonds that were hidden inside. The hunt is on to find the car as quickly as they can before everyone, including Arthur, is heading for a good beating from Tajvir who had more than a passing interest in the contents of the car.
Facts: In this episode we learn a little about Rose Mellors and her dodgy dealings. There was a two week gap between this episode and its predecessor 'All Mod Cons' as ITV broadcast 'Miss World 1980' on November 13th 1980.
Double Take: A second appearance here for Rose Mellors and her bodyguard Jack, played by Ann Lynn and Tony Selby. The pair had previously appeared in series #1.2 'Bury My Half at Waltham Green'.
Bloopers: None found.
Title: Based on 'Diamond's Are A Girl's Best Friend' - a song written by Jule Styne and comes from the musical 'Gentleman Prefer Blondes', first on Broadway in 1949. The musical is based on a novel of the same name from author Anita Loos. The song was most famously performed by Marilyn Monroe in the 1953 version of the film.
022. The Old School Tie - Written by Jeremy
Directed by James Gatward
First Broadcast in the UK: 27th November 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Diana Malin as Debbie, Paul Copley as George Palmer, Sherie Hewson as Olive, Peter Childs as Rycott, Derek Thompson as Harry, Paul Moriarty as Kevin Wells, Nick Stringer as Dave, Ziggy Byfield as Billy, Harold Berens as Jacobson
Story: Arthur falls out with Terry at the start of this episode, after he discovers he has been doing work for someone else. A disgruntled Terry returns to his flat to find old school friend George Palmer has broken in. Terry soon learns that Palmer has escaped from prison, three months before he due to be released in an attempt to clear his name. In return for a favour, Terry asks Dave to put Palmer up at the Winchester while Terry attempts to help clear Palmer's name with the help of their journalist friend, Kevin.With Rycott on the look out for Palmer, Debbie lets slip to Arthur that Terry has had someone around. As well as Rycott, it seems Palmer's brother-in-law Harry and his two heavy mates Dave and Billy are after Palmer to ensure he keeps quiet. In their hunt for Palmer, Dave and Billy beat up everyone close to Terry: Debbie, Arthur and Dave, which leaves Terry with a score of his own to settle. When Arthur discovers the real reason why Terry was working for someone else, he apologises for the problems he has caused.
Facts: In this episode, we discover more about Terry's school days. Due to the argument at the beginning of this episode, Terry and Arthur have very little screen time together. A great scene at the end of this episode as Terry is seen jumping across cars at the scrap yard to catch Dave (played by Nick Stringer). One point of interest in this episode is that faced with irreversible odds and the fact that Terry might be killed, Arthur and Harry enlist the help of Rycott to save the day. In the episode we learn that Dave the barman has a daughter called Naomi, who has got pregnant at a training college in Newcastle. A third appearance in the series by Diana Malin as Debbie Mitchell, the only time she would feature in an episode not written by Tony Hoare.
Watch out in this episode for yet another appearance of the blue Ford Cortina featured in our Dodgy Motors section: Harry (played by "Casualty's" Derek Thompson) is driving this car throughout the episode. Interestingly, Paul Moriarty who plays Kevin the journalist in this episode, went on to play a character called George Palmer in UK soap opera Eastenders between 1996 and 1998.
Double Take: Ziggy Byfield who plays Billy in this episode, would later appear as a different character Billy Meadows in #8.10 'Too Many Crooks'.
Bloopers: None found.
Title: The 'old school tie' is a term used throughout the UK as a metaphor for nepotism/networking and doing discreet favours for those you know or had successful dealings with in the past.
023. All About Scoring, Innit? - Written by Willis Hall #2.12
Directed by Martin Campbell
First Broadcast in the UK: 4th December 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, Karl Howman as Danny Varrow, Adrienne Posta as Jenny, George Sweeney as Clifton Fields, Malcolm Hayes as Robbie Costello, Sean Caffrey as Leo Rafferty, Anthony Douse as Ronnie Raikes, Forbes Collins as Arklow, Martin Neil as Reporter, Bill Dean as Police Sgt, Rachel Herbert as Club Receptionist, Mitzi Rogers as Barmaid, Dino Shafeek as Mini Cab Driver, Nikola Rowley as Student Nurse
Story: When Arthur accidentally answers a telephone call from runaway footballer Danny Varrow at the Winchester Club, he sets about tracking down Fleet Street reporter and full time alcoholic Ronnie Raikes in order to sell the story. Meanwhile, Terry is assigned as his minder and Varrow decides against staying a Terry's gaff, preferring a penthouse suite instead. Minding Varrow soon turns out to be more trouble than it is worth when Terry encounters a shot gun wound and Arthur & Terry discover the details of Varrow's seedy past.
Facts: This episode has a definite football theme, containing clips of an actual football match between Chelsea and Preston in 1980. Watch carefully and you can see the entrance price of just £2.00 to Chelsea's Stamford Bridge - how times have changed.
Double Take: Karl Howman would later appear as a different character in 'Minder On The Orient Express'.
Bloopers: None found.
024. Caught In The Act, Fact - Written by Tony Hoare #2.13
Directed by Terry Green
First Broadcast in the UK: 11th December 1980
Cast: Glynn Edwards as Dave, George Layton as Des, Angela Browne as Lady Margaret Thompson, Glyn Houston as Harry Thompson, Patrick Malahide as Chisholm, Colin Prockter as Stevie, Angus MacKay as Mr. Knight, Ellis Dale as Magistrate, James Marcus as Bertie, Veronica Clifford as Housewife, John Rolfe as Collin, Ken Sharrock as D.C. Jones
Story: While Arthur is organising a scam to swap goldfish for old clothes, Des drops Terry in it by asking him to deliver a car that is later used in an armed robbery. Meanwhile Arthur has arranged for Terry to look after Lady Margaret Thompson. While accompanying her to Harrods, Terry gets arrested for shoplifting for which he later appears in court.
Facts: In this episode we learn that Arthur lives at 18 Arcadia Avenue and has known Terry for about seven years. The character of DC Jones is played by Ken Sharrock in this episode. There is a great line from Arthur in this episode, "Terry, Ladyships are not birds!" - this story ends the series with a cliffhanger regarding Arthur & Terry's relationship.
Double Take: Ellis Dale who plays the magistrate in this episode would later appear as a different character in #6.1 'Give Us This Day Arthur Daley's Bread'. James Marcus who would later appear as different characters in #5.6 'The Long Ride Back To Scratchwood' and #7.1 'It's A Sorry Lorrie, Morrie'.
Bloopers: Watch carefully at 39m30s, when Stevie returns to the Winchester club when Arthur, Des and Dave are at the bar - the man drinking at the bar behind Des and Arthur is immediately in the next shot when the camera switches to Stevie walking in and he is back at the bar just seconds later when the camera returns to the three of them.
