Matthew Fletcher is one of the more reliable, stricter correctional officers at Wentworth. He has a no-nonsense attitude, and is clearly not interested in the prisoners sob stories, or trivialities of their lives. 

"Fletch" is an officer who believes in punishment over rehabilitation. In his view, the prisoners are there to be punished because the committed a crime. He has no interest in why they do it.

The character only appears in the first three seasons. In the episode 4x01 officer Will Jackson tells inmate Bea Smith that Fletcher has bought a farm in Tasmania (‘Tassie’) and has become a sheep shepherd. Smith comments on his new job not being so different from the previous one, probably ironically comparing Wentworth inmates to a sheep flock.

Season 3Edit

During season 3 Fletcher is seen recovering after being struck by a van in the season before. Fletcher is invited to return to work, but at first refuses, but changes his mind and returns to light duties. Fletch has a conversation with Linda who told her that he was 'back to his old self.' after Linda didn't visit him in hospital, but claims that it was okay as he hated hospitals as well. Later in the season, Fletcher joins forces with Bea to bring down Ferguson and is successful, Fletcher later survives an attack by Nils Jesper, and at the end of season 3 decides to resign from Wentworth and go to Tassie.

General

Other Info Edit

  • It is unknown the reason behind the change of name from Jim to Matthew. However in the original show, Fletch had the full name Matthew James Fletcher, so the change of name still makes sense in a way.In Season 2 it is mentioned that he said his name was Jim.
  • Matthew Fletcher is similar to the original character of Fletch in some ways. If you have seen the original Prisoner series, you'll know that Fletch was originally a strict unlikeable character who softened over time. Matthew appears to be the same as Jim when he first arrived - strict and no-nonsense.
  • He makes a mean omelette.
