Arthur Daley Minder

The iconic coat and hat combo attracted a lot of attention

Minder, for our overseas readers, was a 1980s British comedy-drama about a kindhearted bodyguard (or minder in London parlance) named Terry McCann and his shady employer (Daley). 

The character of Daley was played by actor George Cole, who died in 2015.

The auction house's Alan Pritchard told local paper Newbury Today: “There was tremendous interest in all the lots and fierce bidding in the room.

“It is a real testament to George Cole, his iconic character and his illustrious career.”
