THE BEST BOOK WRITTEN ON MINDER Apr 12, 2010
This, in my opinion, is the best book that has been written about the classic British TV series, MINDER. The book gives an excellent synopsis and cast listing for all 108 episodes made with George Cole as Arthur Daley, and it also has an excellent section on the meanings of a large range of Cockney Rhyming slang words and phrases. The book is endorsed by both George Cole and Patrick Malahide (who played Detective Sergeant Chisholm from 1979 to 1988). In addition to all of this, the book has an impressive index on the actors who were in the show, during the years 1979 to 1994 i.e. the "Classic Minder" Years.
Brian Hawkins has done a brilliant job with this definitive MINDER book. Congratulations to you, Brian!
