Arthur's flat in this episode looks like the same location used as Arthur's flat in 'Another Bride, Another Groom'. In the scene where Arthur is hanging his picture on the wall and Terry is giving him directions, you can see the hallway in the background matches that seen in 'Another Bride, Another Groom'.
As I am fine tuning the episode guide on minder.org together with my chief proofreader, I thought I would add this little behind the scenes photo from this episode, which is on display in the 'Prospect of Whitby' pub, near to where this was filmed:

Daley & McCann are, as good as, holding hands, on the exercise yard, in the scrubs.
I like George Sewlell so it was fun to see him in Minder. A highly enjoyable episode. After seeing around thirty episodes of this show it's getting harder to find ways to praise George Cole. His just so great as Arthur Daley!
I went back and checked the bit where the boy notices the camera and makes sure he gets filmed. I wonder what he thought when he saw himself on Telly.
Not so keen on this one personally. I think if the subject matter (art forgery) isn't my cup of tea, then The episode does too, for me. I felt the same with Anthony Valentine's episodes (gambling)!As ever, the performances, especially George Cole, are mostly great, though I thought Patricia Quinn over acted when Steve Alder turned up and started fighting George Sewell. Candy Davis looked hot here. John Tordoff, cleaned up from The Sweeney ep, Supersnout, though still not able to keep away from strip clubs. I did like the "deliberate mistake" on the painting.
When Arthur and Frank are standing and talking on the street, early in the episode, every passerby behind them seems to know filming is going on and looks toward the camera. Someone is also watching from a window across the street. They can be seen right above Arthur's trilby in the scene.
Yes I've noticed that as well. Now I know it's in the scene i look for it every time. It's not ideal for the reality of the programme but i'd much rather see this kind of thing than have a studio bound production.
Not bad this one. Some great scenes of old Soho (I assume) so it’s got plenty of old London atmosphere. Not that much story to it though. Terry seemed to genuinely consider the offer from the dodgy bookie at the end. Oh and I still see George Sewell as the hapless sergeant from The Detectives!
