The Desperate Hours - S2-E8

Visible crew/equipment: In "The Desparate Hours", right at the end when Barraclough is in Fletcher's cell, when Fletcher says, "I never heard nothing" you can see the shadow of the boom mic on his face.

Fletch: I haven't been so put out since my son Raymond crept back into school one night and had a prior peek at the exam papers.
Godber: Did he?
Fletch: Yes he did! And he still didn't bleedin' pass.
