Chase, The (BBC-1 2006-2007, Gaynor Faye, Nicola Stephenson)

Published

on

The Chase marked Kay Mellors return to the BBC being her first production for the channel since the superb Playing the Field.

Set in the small Yorkshire community of Oxley, The Chase focuses on the vetinary practice run by George Williams (played by Keith Barron) and his daughter Anna (played by Mellor’s daughter Gaynor Faye). As the series opens though George drops a bombshell on the practice, having just remarried to the much younger Claudie (Michelle Holmes), he announces his retirement.

Anna, 8 months pregnant, is needless none too happy about this turn of events and pins her hopes on the return of her sister Sarah (played by the excellent Nicola Stephenson) to help keep things on an even keel.

Sarah though, who has been living in London following the death of their mother, has her own reasons for not wanting to return to Oxley, before she left she caught Anna’s husband Tom (Nicholas Gleaves) in a clinch with surgery nurse Fiona (Heather Peace).

Of course being a Kay Mellor drama there is heavy emphasis on relationships and secrets unfurling and things not always working out for the best.

The first season ended with George being killed and the second season was mainly concerned with the fallout from that.

Filmed mostly in Otley, Yorkshire which served for the series setting of Oxley.
