The Chase in September
Warner Vision have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Chase for 4th September 2006 priced at £19.99. The brand new drama from award-winning screenwriter Kay Mellor (Playing the Field, Band of Gold, Fat Friends) is currently airing weekly on BBC1. This six-part series will be released as a double-disc DVD, courtesy of Warner Vision, on the Monday after the final episode is broadcast.
Set within a struggling vetinary practice in Yorkshire, The Chase features a cast including Keith Barron, Gaynor Faye and Nicola Stephenson as a family of vets serving the fictional local community of Oxley.
George Williams (Keith Barron) heads the practice with his daughter Anna (Gaynor Faye) and her husband Tom (Nicholas Gleaves).
George's second daughter Sarah (Nicola Stephenson) lives in London, where she moved following the death of her mother – and the discovery of Tom in a compromising situation with one of the surgery nurses, Fiona (Heather Peace).
But George has found a new wife, Claudie (Michelle Holmes) and at the wedding reception he announces his retirement leaving an eight month pregnant Anna with a struggling business, an estranged sister, one vet down, one vet defecting to the local opposition and a list of operations as long as her arm. It's enough to send a woman into labour!
The Chase also stars Reece Dinsdale as senior partner Rick; Janet Dibley as his wife - the fearsome, snobby practice manager, Deborah; and Sunetra Sarker, Rachel Davies and Liam Garrigan as vetinary nurses Clare, Margaret and Matt.
