First critical post from me I think but have to say this was for me the most disappointing episde to date in the whole series, the story line was simply uninteresting, none of the characters were in any way memorable and very few laughs save for the answering machine scenes, not at all the "real" minder
Not one of my favourite episodes, the main story just didn't grip me. I found myself not really caring about Roddy's plight and the resolution was disappointing. Even more than usual I missed Arthur and Terry when they were not on the screen, but when they were their scenes was as good as ever. The opening scene with Arthur installing Dave's answering machine was golden - "that's Harry Secombe". Also enjoyed Arthur's 'Daley Workout' and the sight of him in tracksuit and trilby was hilarious. But overall these side stories didn't make up for a main story that disappoints. 3 out of 5.

I quite like it. Doesn't have the bite of the best, and Tony Anholt's accent is dodgy, although nice to see him outside of The Protectors. Think it does, also, lack Chisholm's input, which is superb in most of his episodes.
