Christmas 1983, and Euston Films' sublime comedy-drama series Minder has become so popular that its stars, Dennis Waterman and George Cole, have been able to storm the UK top 40 with the daft-but-fun What Are We Gonna Get 'Er Indoors? - a song the pair of them also co-wrote. Here we see them performing it live on Top of the Pops:
Isn't that fantastic? I bloody love Minder - seriously! It's one of those rare shows that I enjoy every bit as much now as I did when I was nine or ten. As if the superb dynamic between Cole & Waterman and the supporting cast, coupled with great scripts and a seemingly endless conveyor belt of the best British actors as guest stars, wasn't enough, it also featured possibly the greatest theme tune - and opening and closing credits - of all time:
Absolute magic. Anyway, if you've read this far you'll probably be interested in these: both sides of Arfur & Terry's Christmas '83 #21 smash hit!
