NO WAY OUT
While Godber is looking forward to Christmas, Fletch just wants a quiet sojourn in the prison hospital. As he says: “there’s one big event around here, it’s not the coming of the Lord – it’s the tunnelling of Tommy Slocombe’’. Just as Fletcher wins a trip to the local civilian hospital, Harry Grout decides to call in a favour.
THE DESPERATE HOURS
Fletcher and Godber have spent months fermenting their illicit liquor “Chateau Slade” but prison officer Mackay discovers the brew and then they find themselves caught up in psychotic Reg Unwin’s attempt to take Mr Barraclough hostage. Will Fletch be the hero of the day?
