This review is from: Minder 2009 Series 1  [DVD] (DVD)
Minder is a TV classic, so why this pathetic sequel to the original?
This is another Shane Richie flop, why this man ever got onto TV in the first place is a real mystery and to cast him as the lead in Minder is perhaps one of TV's greatest mistakes, no wonder it flopped.
The reason the series was called Minder was because it was Dennis Waterman's Terry McCann that was the main character of the series, this changed to Arthur when Watermen left and a new character of Ray Daley was introduced.
The producers could at least could have had George Cole as Arthur in the first episode, to link the series, or could have featured Terry or Ray. TV series that have had spin offs like Star Trek, Doctor Who feature characters from the original in the new one, sadly this did'nt happen here and managed to make the 11th season of Minder a turkey.
This is just another cheap rehash of a TV classic follwing the flop remakes of Randall & Hopkirk, The Prisoner, the US Life On Mars.
Buy the original it's a real gem, avoid this at all costs
