The revived series, starring Shane Richie as Archie Daley (nephew of Arthur) and Lex Shrapnel in the title role, is due to hit screens in February. And singing that iconic theme tune – first made famous by the memorably named Dennis Waterman and the Dennis Waterman Band – are Glaswegian band, Attic Lights.

“We wanted to use the original theme tune to show that the roots of the new series are very much set in the original, but it needed to be updated for modern times,” commented series producer Sean O’Connor.  “Attic Lights are a fantastic new band, who have hit just the right note with the new theme.  Minder is one of the British comedy drama greats, and we want to satisfy fans of the early series, but have also added different elements this time round to excite new viewers.”

So, what do you think of the new theme? So good for you? Or so bad? Check it out here.
