The Daleks boom mic overhead

Set of The Daleks with the boom microphone overhead.

Boom operators hold, control or operate the overhead boom microphone, usually mounted on a pole (also known as a boom pole). The boom microphone is the primary method of sound recording on a television and film recording set both in studio and on-location.

As of 2018, series 5 was the last series of Doctor Who to consistently credit boom operators on episodes. From then on, many of the same crew members became sound maintenance engineers.

Series 5 uniquely credited both roles. The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe is the only episode since 2010 to still credit a boom operator.
