    I was looking forward to watching Minder on Paramount but they have completely ruined it by blanking out any kind of swearing. Even words such as b*stard or *rse are being blanked out on a program starting at 8pm - why :mad:

    Although if Minder set about his opponents with a Remington, that is generally deemed to be OK.

    I recently bought the first 8 series in box sets pretty cheaply, and have just finished series 3.

    Great show ! Arthur Daley is one of TV's greatest characters.

    Never really gave the so-called swearing a second thought, though I was a little taken aback with Arthur last night when he refered to a certain race as 'Lucozades'.....
