Found 27th Nov 2011
Mega Monday deals all over the place i know, but i think this deserves a thread.

Complete Classic Minder, featuring all 10 series plus specials and the fantastic movie, Minder On The Orient Express in one set for £30.

i paid £40 for a used copy a while ago and was very happy - so this is a steal.

Hope this helps even one person get a cracking set for someone for crimbo.

yeah its been £40 at zavvi in the past, but its usually a lot higher.

the first 7 series are true classics, they dont make tv like it anymore.

Great viewing.Lots shown on ITV4.
Heat added.

Would make nice christmas present for my dad, thanks for posting op

Yep. Looks good. My old man loved Minder back in the day. I've just ordered as a crimbo present for him.

Zavvi could be on to a nice little earner with this deal.....

I believe theres two versions of this box one for the Aussie market,one of them is edited un sure which thou

The uk edition, ie this one has some heavy editing, due to the ridiculous demands from the music industry on royalty payments, so most of the nightclub and pub scenes have been cut out and some scene's when terry, arthur etc etc have been in situations with music playing whilst driving etc etc.
Still a classic tv show.

Been looking for this for a while and waiting for it to come in down in price.

Nice find.

One of my all time favourite series. Sadly it has really dated badly. Was it really that long ago?

I have this already nice find though op.

Thanks, although just ordered it from Hut. They have 10% off for first 500 customers (10NOV) at same price, so £26.96 delivered + 2% quidco too.

Im also sure a few things deemed not "PC" anymore have been cut out. Which there was quite alot of in Minder lol.

Great classic show. Heat added.

Does this also include the series where that other guy (cant recall his name) took over from Dennis Waterman (Write the them tune, sing the theme tune) ?

never quite hit the mark of the original in my opinion!

Great price but I don't think I'll bother if it's so heavily edited....

I have this,but paid a lot more.Great deal for classic tv.That remake with Shane Ritchie was probably the worst thing ever seen on tv.

Does this include the Minder on the orient express movie? I love that film so funny :-)

I fail to understand the voting on this forum sometimes, this is a superb offer, this should be so hot you need oven gloves to handle it.

wanted to get this but after hearing it's heavily edited put me off. I have all of the episodes as TV rips which I'm not sure if are edited down on not.

it certainly does, and all the other specials.

glad to see it has a bit of heat, more than i expected lol.

as for editing, ive seen most of the boxset and its the same as the original dvd releases - some music cuts but to be honest there are still a lot of un-pc stuff in the shows, plenty of naked women and racial slurs.

indeed - if only the show was called pussy then maybe it would be hotter eh?

Taken a gamble and ordered. To be honest as most of these episodes are over 20 years old I suspect I would nt be able to remember if they were edited or not, unless it's so bad that at one point Chisholm is trying to nick Daley and it the next cut it's Rycott!!!

Anyone had it delivered yet?

No...........

No, not me either. Order showing something like "awaiting stock pick." Assume there is a possible chance they might have got caught cold by demand and didnt have enough copies back at the lock up...

I rang them as i ordered this 10 days ago. Was advised that if it hadn't arrived by Fri 9th then i should cancel as they were unlikely to get it back in before Christmas.

Same here.

Me three.

Just had an email saying dispatched...:)

Me two.

Finally arrived today.

Needs expiring.Now over £52.
Well done to those who got it cheap.

Received it and the boxes are smashed. fcking useless Royal Mail.

Got mine - delivered safely.

Yep, mine received yesterday as well. One slight problem was that it was delivered to work, but they somehow managed not to include my name, so it had been on a bit of a tour and got to me opened. All in all in keeping with Arfur.....
