Used to love watching him beat people up in Minder. And do a fair amount of shagging.

A sad loss wasn't too old really..

Yes but he also did alot of Theatre work and was in the classic Hammer film Scars of Dracula,not forgetting playing Just William in BBC as a child actor,they don't make actors like him anymore or series as good as the Sweeney and Minder,I won't even say IMHO in this one ,I could watch Minder 24 hrs a day and never get bored ,the interplay between George Cole And Dennis Waterman was TV magic.what do we have now fuck all.Lt Kudu. :smt013

Me grandad always watched Minder in the 80s seemed like it was constantly on when I visited. I started watching them again on ITV hub and was pleasantly surprised at how good the storylines and acting was. A fair few years back I was walking through Leeds and he was filming something. I walked past him in the street and did a double take.

A great Memory,I used to watch Minder on Monday nights with my dad while my mum was at her Philosophy meeting.I don't remember a bad episode,it was never quite as good after Dennis left but George Cole was always a delight to watch.Lt Kudu .

I missed out on Minder and The Sweeney for various reasons, I've caught up with a few as they've been on constant repeat for a few years, but I remember him more for being a copper with a slightly dodgy past (for a change) in "New Tricks", and the sitcom "On the up" which is being shown on Forces TV (for now, until the multiplex it's broadcast on is shut down).
