You take the time and trouble to find out what record for the longest succesful chase in The Chase actually is, and then someone comes along and smashes it. Typical !
Seriously , if you haven't seen yesterday's ( Tuesday 8th June ) Chase, then can I recommend it to you ? Check it out on the iplayer. Two challengers made it through to the final chase, and I have to give credit where it's due, they were very good. They set a great total of 26, and you'd have been forgiven for thinking that with that total they were odds on to be going home with the cash. However Mark was in the chaser's chair, and in what I think is one of the finest chases we're likely to see in this or any other series he concentrated on not getting any wrong - and to be honest even the hesitations when the answer didn't come straightaway were slight. Not that there were more than a few seconds left on the clock as he made it through the tape, but running down a head start of 26 takes a hell of a lot of doing. Mark's comment immediately after the chase ? "I'm knackered. " As I said at the start - I'm not surprised.
Very hard lines on the challengers though - people have played a lot worse and come away with the cash before. Its just the way the cookie crumbles.
