Minder: The Dennis Waterman Years [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ George Cole
23 of 24 people found the following review helpful
Not too sure why,but the 4 christmas specials that featured Dennis Waterman haven't been included in this boxset.The christmas specials are

1983 - Christmas Bonus
1984 - Around The Corner
1985 - Minder On The Orient Express
1988 - An Officer & A Car Salesman

Slightly disappointed in this as this is meant to be the Dennis Waterman Years.If the 4 christmas specials had been included i would have given this 5 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 1 April 2011
I enjoyed "Beadle's About" when i was youger so i thought i'd give this dvd a try.The dvd has all 6 episodes of series 1 originally shown (22nd November 1986 - 27th December 1986) with a total running time of 2 hours.There were some laugh out loud moments but not as many as i hoped.The pranks that Beadle is involved in are alright.If i'm being honest out of the bunch that he is involved in there are maybe only 2 or 3 that stand out.Also each episode has a few random pranks they pulled on the public where Beadle isn't involved in them.Some of these pranks are funny where others just fall flat.

The last episode on the dvd is the Christmas episode however the 2nd part of that… Read more

Steve Martin & John Candy are great in this film.Both men just bounce off each other & there is great chemistry on screen with both actors.There is some great laugh out loud moments & the ending always gets me.I'd say this is John Candy's best film.
