As I was so young when it was broadcast, I remember very little about 'The Long Chase'. I recall that there was a teenage boy and girl (Jan Francis) in it. One of the 'crooks' turned out to be a policeman. However, engraved on my mind is the 'Motorcyclist', played by actor Hilary Minster. This nameless, silent, sinister character, dressed in black, rode around in pursuit of the two youngsters. He was not the chief criminal but one of his henchmen. One episode ended with the teenagers trapped underground. The girl managed to look out through a hole in the ground and she saw the motorcyclist striding up and down outside. The last shot of the episode was of his long, black boots!
The Motorcyclist came to a sticky end in one of the last episodes when he fell over the edge of a cliff. I do not remember how the story ended. However, I do recall the rest of my family being such fans of the series that we had to rush back from our holiday in order to be home in time to see it!
