The Cliffs is the 4th episode of The Clever and the Other One.
Jay and Miles are chased by a bloodthirsty criminal while attempting to relax in Hastings Country Park.
The episode was filmed while C and Hanmore's family were on a trip out to Hastings Country Park one afternoon in mid-May 2012. It was not until post-production that Hanmore noticed that heavy wind at the Park that day had caused an excessive amount of wind noise, rendering much of the dialogue in the episode unaudiable. Hanmore was unable to reduce it, and so it remains in the original 2012 version of the episode.
