Minder is just a brilliant satire of Thatcher's Britain in the 80s, better in some ways than Del Boy and Rodney.

Really enjoyed this series, and hope they stick to a similar format next time as having 3 chefs and a guest judge during the week made it much more watchable, and not as slow as last years. They...
