6:10pm – Saturday, February 25 on ABC1
The British comedy-drama about London’s criminal underworld – made famous in the 70s for putting the slang word ‘Minder’ into Australian and UK conversation – continues on ABC1.
This revamped series follows the escapades of Archie Daley (played by Shane Richie), a socially ambitious but highly unscrupulous importerexporter, wholesaler, used-car salesman, and anything else from which there was money to be made.
Archie ropes in the honest and unlucky taxi driver Jamie Cartwright (played by Lex Shrapnel) to help him with one of his ‘jobs’, ultimately becoming Archie’s ‘minder’.
Entrepreneur, Felix, and his wife Eve, are hosting a charity event in Archie’s warehouse. In a bid to impress Felix, Archie allows him to believe the Porsche he is minding for an old associate is his. Felix raises the bet, and to save face Archie stakes the Porsche, losing it fair and square. Refusing to return the car, Felix offers Archie the chance to win it back playing poker at his country manor. Knowing Jamie is a poker expert Archie puts him forward. Jamie enters the most dangerous card game of his life. Will his skill be enough to win the car and get them out of this tricky situation?
