6. Best title sequence
Public Eye had a different title sequence each series (except for S3), and I quite like most of them. However, while the usual theme is my favourite, you've got to give them points for S4: they not only made a new credit sequence, they recorded a different, slower and more downbeat version of the theme, and then "Welcome to Brighton?" had a separate, shorter credits sequence used only on that episode, in which we flick through Frank's prison file, which doubles up as a way of reminding viewers where they left him at the end of S3. If anybody could have forgotten...
The main/original theme
and the rearranged S4 theme
. (Written by Robert Sharples under the pseudonym Robert Earley).8. Missing episode you would like to see found.
All thirty-six of them, of course! Narrowing it down, I'm more keen to see anything from S2 or 3 than S1, but anything
would be wonderful. Everything that survives suggests it was always of a pretty high quality, and any tiny piece of Frank Marker than could be restored to the world would be amazing. (Sadly, they were wiped rather than lost, so... it's not likely, to say the least). Especially, I'd like the 8 lost Roger Marshall episodes, the 6 lost Robert Holmes stories, the David Whittaker, and the one that had Jacqueline Pearce in it, and also Pauline Delany's first guest appearance, but if you pin me down and make me choose one, then there's only really one answer...
"Cross That Palm When We Come To It" (S3) by Roger Marshall, the episode in which Frank gets set up and arrested, and there is no escape or proving his innocence for him. Viewers at the time wrote in demanding Frank's release, so maybe it was too heart-breaking to survive, but still, it's a crime that it doesn't.9. Favourite photo/screencap
I thought about this, and flicked through my epic collection, but honestly:( The obvious one and some other contenders )( The questions! )
