Dave the barman (Glynn Edwards) died the other day.
RIP

I hope Chisholm and Jones showed up at his funeral. Dave's character was fleshed out with substantially more screen-time in some of the post-Waterman shows. A classy, straight-up fellow, Glynn Edwards, and former husband of Yootha Joyce.

Some dubious stuff amid the obituaries, such as this: "The burly Edwards found fame as the solid and level-headed barman Dave across nearly 100 episodes of hit ITV comedy-drama Minder from 1979 to 1994, eternally caught between George Cole's comic con man Arthur Daley and his titular bodyguard, Terry, played by Dennis Waterman. Edwards dispensed alcohol and advice to the scheming duo with all the sangfroid of an exhausted parent stoically indulging naughty offspring."

Probably still waiting for Arthur to pay his bar tab.

RIP.

I remember that Glyn off the set, would bartend at your 'gaff' for two 'undred knicker' which was certainly a nice little 'earner'.

Arthur to Terry (sorry, can't remember the episode) 'So what's he like Terry'?
Terry replies 'Queens Park Rangers supporter' Arthur (Fulham supporter) just raises his eyebrows and shakes his head. Says it all! Beautiful piece of writing!
