I watched this last night and had to admit to thoroughly enjoying it. Racing pigeons is not something you would have expected Arthur to be involved in, but he was and I found it to be a very good episode. The part when him and Ray were at Bradford station trying to capture a pigeon was brilliant. Some very good lines in the episode also.
The good thing about Minder is how it likes to stereotype Northerners, the Irish, Welsh, Scots, etc, etc. Don't think you would get away with half of it now without a complaint being made.
I think it benefitted from not having Morley in the episode.
Ah, nostalgic, what a throwback... Nicks Ray's bird and gets away with it, lucky devil. Blondie was very fit too, poor old ray got played, always the bridesmaid!
Yes, a particularly attractive addition to this one. I like Nostalgic, top character and shame we didn't see more of him. He was scripted to appear in another episode too, mentioned elsewhere on the forum. Also don't forget an article and feature on Nick Day as DS Morley in this one, which you can read on this thread: minder.proboards.com/thread/566/ds-morley-unknown-truth

Daley & McCann are, as good as, holding hands, on the exercise yard, in the scrubs.
I like the part when Arthur is using the wipe board and has a long list of things that need to be down under Ray's name and all he has listed for himself is getting a haircut. Racing pigeons was certainly a different idea for a story.
