Patrick Mower who starred in Golden Fleece, was on the box this evening in a very enjoyable episode of The Minder. Patrick played a serial bigamist, and in one scene he gets chased all around around a swimming baths by a pair of geezers intent on some G.B.H. The baths in question looked very much like the one in Golden Fleece to me. Can anyone confirm it ?
Good episode, and one where the squad didn’t win, as the two Aussies were on the plane overhead by the time they got there. I thought Haskins acting was excellent to where he was framed, and also liked Jack's refusals to take the bribe.
liked the Buckinghamshire locations too.
Thats me up to date now on series 2 as I’ve now caught up with the ones I missed earlier last year so I’ve now watched all the series again, more or less in order in the last few months.
To summarise, I would rate series 2 as the best overall. 1 was good, started with a great opening episode, but did have a couple of slightly below par ones, Night Out I felt was weak. 2 doesn’t have a single weak one, 3 has some great ones too, but flags a little here and there, Bad Apple is my least favourite, but overall, pretty much up to scratch. It is only series 4 where it starts to lose the pace and energy a bit, but one episode, Money Money Money, stands comparison with the very best.
I think the first of the two films got in the way a bit during the filming of series 3.
